Wealthy socialite Emily Thorne is the talk of the Hamptons when she buys a coveted beach house next to Grayson Manor. There’s more than meets the eye with Emily, though. She’s out for revenge against Victoria and Conrad Grayson, who framed her father for terrible crimes. Emily, who's real name is Amanda Clarke, spent years training and plotting to make the Graysons and their accomplices pay. She grudgingly allows tech genius Nolan Ross, a friend of her father's who knows her real identity, to help her. Unfortunately, cool-headed Emily's revenge doesn't go as smoothly as planned. Romantic feelings for her childhood friend Jack Porter, the discovery of a half-sister and surprise visits from people who know her real identity threaten her end game.
