Hannah Dain, a skilled business lawyer, is on the verge of leaving her familyâ€™s law firm for a better job. But her plan is derailed when a real estate deal sheâ€™s put together suddenly goes bad. Two million dollars of investorsâ€™ money has disappeared. If the mistake was Hannahâ€™s, her firm is on the hook for the whole amount. Career on the line, Hannah decides to investigate-- despite a disapproving father and antagonistic older sister. Having long ago abandoned efforts to heal the family rift, Hannah now enjoys her separate existence, whether drafting a complex IPO or bicycling miles through the hot Arizona desert. Although she exonerates the firm, a car bomb and two murders thwart the police's identification of the culprit behind the scheme. At work on a new deal, Hannah is assisted by Cooper Smith, the firm's computer consultant and her former lover. Compelled to dig deep for key information, Hannah uncovers a greater threat all too close to home. Only by exposing long-buried family secrets can she save her reputation, her law firm--and her life.
