The macabre case began with a string of bizarre deaths in San Francisco, then spread to New York City. Each victim was well-to-do and had been befriended by members of an extended Gypsy family: the notorious Tene Bimbos.
Fay Faron, an unconventional private investigator, was assigned to investigate the accusations of an elderly widow who claimed she was being swindled by a Tene Bimbo named Danny. Within days, the widow was found naked and dead, and the Gypsy settled comfortably into her $500,000 home.
In a voyage into darkness, Olsen exposes a terrifying Gypsy subculture that exploits public indifference and police ineptitude to take merciless advantage of the most vulnerable among us.
