THE SETTING IS CHICAGO AND NEW YORK IN THE AGE OF THE ROBBER BARONS; THE PROTAGONIST IS FRANK COWPERWOOD, ALREADY WEALTHY, BUT OUT TO BUILD A FINANCIAL EMPIRE VAST ENOUGH TO SATISFY HIS APPETITE. THE BOOK TRACES HIS CAREER AS HE SEEKS HIS GOAL-ONLY TO FIND HIS MARRIAGE DESTROYED, HIS MISTRESSES LOVELESS, HIS MANSIONS NO BETTER THAN MAUSOLEUMS AND HIS EVERY TRIUMPH A HOLLOW DEFEAT.
