Summoned under mysterious circumstances to meet Jake Lawrence, one of the world's richest entrepreneurs, Angela Day may be on the threshold of a brighter future. The reclusive multibillionaire is planning a takeover of a hot, new company--and he wants Angela to apply her considerable skills in banking to make sure it all goes smoothly . . . and secretly. In exchange, Lawrence promises to use his formidable influence to permanently reunite Angela with her son, whom she lost in a custody battle to her adulterous, connected ex-husband. It's the one reward for which Angela would risk everything. But with enormous wealth and power comes the ultimate price tag. For enemies everywhere have marked the man for death. And anyone close to him--namely, Angela Day--is fair game.

An engaging story of high finance at its most vicious and the brutal treatment that can befall anyone who gets in the way of men with a lot of money and power. The weakness of the plot is that it requires a LOT of suspension of dibelief for a reader to accept the multi-layered deceptions and the trail of "collateral damage" -- e.g. numerous dead bodies, a helicopter destroyed by a missile.
It's roughly the same genre as Ian Hamilton's "Ava Lee" stories, but Hamilton does it better and Ava is a more compelling character.
