DEATH, GREED, and INTRIGUE are the stuff of detective novels and not expected in a prestigious coastal enclave. But there is plenty after the chairman of Newport Beach’s esteemed bank is found murdered. Enter single mom Beverly Battersby, the bank’s hardworking CFO. Devastated by her mentor’s death, she is horrified to discover the new executives above her are mobsters in the process of embezzling millions—which would leave her beloved community in ruins—and intend to lay the blame squarely on her.
Infuriated, Beverly pulls together her own covert team to take down the swindlers, with the help of Alaskan banker Robert Langdon. Even as her squad explodes into action, the threat against Beverly escalates, and she’s forced to set aside her growing romance with Robert and to go into hiding in the Alaskan wilderness. But if the assassins track her down, is she capable of defending and protecting her small family? And will those bilking her bank and community ever face their crimes? Follow Beverly as she utilizes all her wits and untested skills to bring to justice an enemy who plays dirty.
