Gene Ligotti

Author Gene Ligottiabout this book: This novel is based upon an intriguing idea. Cosmetic houses are always searching for the fountain of youth for women. What if a cosmetic house/pharmaceutical company actually did find such a formula?

The story is based on Long Island New York with a Pharmaceutical company called Contessa Cosmetics. Run by 65 year old Elena Arvantides, an heiress to a huge fortune of her father's making. Working in secret she embarks on a search for this impossible formula started by her father. With the aid of her chief geneticist, Devin O'Rourke, they actually find the elusive phenomenal formula.

As in all of Ligotti's novels, there is an underlying love story. In this case it is the driving force behind the story line. Eager to try the formula on humans, Elena tests it on herself and she has a reversal of age to the beautiful 32 year old woman she once was. Hiding this act from all including Devin, she creates a half sister, Electra. Electra is beautiful and possesses all of Elena's knowledge, but there is a major difference. Electra is not a kind person. She is vicious in her dealing with others. Since Elena has 'disappeared' through a twist of events, Devin is charged with her murder. The court scenes are exciting and the ending is unexpected. Again another must read from Ligotti.
