From the Publisher:
An eccentric new girl. A brooding socialite. The scion of one of New York's wealthiest families. A promising filmmaker. As students at the exclusive Chadwick School, Phoebe, Lauren, Nick, and Patch already live in a world most teenagers only dream about.
They didn't ask to be Society members. But when three of them receive a mysterious text message promising success and fame beyond belief, they say yes to everything. Even to the harrowing initiation ceremony in a gritty warehouse downtown, and to the ankh-shaped tattoo they're forced to get on the nape of their necks.
Once they're part of the Society, things begin falling into place for them. Week after week, their ambitions are fulfilled. It's all perfectuntil a body is found in Central Park with no distinguishing marks except for an ankh-shaped tattoo.
Secret societies are mysterious and alluring until someone dies. Lauren, Nick, Patch, and Phoebe go to the elite Chadwick School in New York City, enjoying privilege that any teen would kill for. And three of them receive anonymous texts offering them everything and asking for only an initiation and tattoo in return, they jump at the chance. Their lives become even more successful and amazing, but when the first body is found in the park, with only a special tattoo for identification, things go down a very different path. The first in a series.
