THE LAST SUMMER OF THE RICH mixes thriller with dark comedy and satire. We are drawn into the world of Hanna von Stezewitz, a pampered orphaned heiress who has been disconnected from her own feelings for a long time. Sexual perversion and drugs won't do it for her anymore. She runs the family business, a large conglomerate of diversified operations from fancy fashion lines to seedy brothels. Her ailing grandfather, who has set the foundation for the vast family fortune by snuggling up to Nazi aristocracy back in the Third Reich, scorns her for her scandalous lifestyle and daring business decisions and threatens to disown her, but she won't have any of it. Instead she arranges for a solution, which will leave her in power. After her grandfather's death Hanna comes to realize that the contract killer is still out there and that he is going after her. While she finds herself falling deeply in love with an enigmatic young nun, who was her grandfather's nurse, she frantically tries to stay alive…
