Women Are the Fiercest Creatures

Andrea Dunlop

In this wildly addictive novel, three overlooked women take on the charming, manipulative tech CEO who wrote them out of his startup's history.

Anna Sarnoff is still reeling from her quickie divorce from tech wunderkind Jake Sarnoff. Forced out of the company that she helped Jake build, Anna is trying to pick up the pieces of her life, navigating the waters of solo parenting their two teenage boys and adapting to her new role of ex-wife. To make things more complicated, Jake seems to want her back...and his persuasiveness tempts her to say yes.

Across town, the brilliant and striking Samanta Flores-Walsh, Jake's college girlfriend, is busy raising her teenage daughter and running her thriving yoga studio. Although their relationship ended years ago, unanswered questions from their time together gnaw at her, and when she learns that Jake is planning to take his billion-dollar company public, she starts to wonder if perhaps it isn't too late for justice.

Finally, there's Jake's much younger new wife, Jessica, who's struggling to stay afloat as a new mom while her high-profile husband grows increasingly distant.

Set in the wealthy enclaves of Seattle's tech elite, the lives of these three women grow entangled as long-held secrets are forced to the surface, threatening to destroy their families. Written with razor-sharp intelligence and heart, Women Are the Fiercest Creatures is a searing look at the complexities of family and the obstacles women navigate in every aspect of their existence.

Praise for this book

"Andrea Dunlop has a knack for making deeply flawed characters recognizable and sympathetic and compelling as hell. Maybe you come for the beautiful rich people embroiled in juicy scandals of their own making, but you stay for those characters, their intricate relationships, and their complex motivations in every shade of gray. Great on motherhood, empowered women, and female support roles of all sorts, Women Are the Fiercest Creatures is Dunlop's best yet."
--Laurie Frankel, author of One, Two, Three and This Is How It Always Is

"Women Are the Fiercest Creatures is a stylish, timely, buzz-worthy literary thriller that I tore through with glee. Dunlop brings to life a trio of strong, achingly real female protagonists whose search for truth and meaning in their romantic and professional lives held me spellbound. I loved this book!"
--Tara Conklin, author of The Last Romantics and The House Girl

"A well-written story that will leave readers thinking that women are indeed the fiercest creatures."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Dunlop's latest is a compelling and fascinating tale of performative feminism and the women who suffer under it."
