Laura Channing and her husband partner with Alexandra, sales manager and mother of three, to grow their small business. But Alexandra’s methods walk a thin line between effectiveness and cruelty. They must step in to redefine her role. Alexandra seems chastened. But the sudden illness of the Channings’ daughter takes Laura both out of the office and out of Alexandra’s way. When Laura returns to her business, loyalties have shifted. Only after the trap set by Alexandra’s protégé Melissa snaps shut does Laura begin to understand. Humiliated and confused, Laura surprises almost everyone, including her husband, by turning her back on the business she founded. Unexpected allies and the untimely death of a friend convince Laura that something must be done. Instead of fighting back, she’ll change the game.
Evie, Alexandra Hallow’s precocious and unpredictable daughter, runs away from the ghosts of her past. But everywhere she goes, they follow. Those bastards.
