Politics, money, love . . . what could go wrong?
Susan Callisto is pushing thirty and taking stock. Before
she traded financial security at a Boston law firm for
sandals and jeans in Waltham, she specialized in real estate
law. Now she has reinvented herself as a political
consultant for ordinary people seeking low-level office. Her
income may be dicey, but Susan loves her new life—until her
sometime boyfriend, Detective Lieutenant Michael Benedict,
dumps her without a goodbye. Not one to mope, Susan uses
humor and perpetual motion to push away the pain.
Susan's new world is one where politics can turn deadly and
even love may not survive. So when local high roller Charles
Renfrow offers her a huge retainer to advise his political
campaign, Susan is wary. Why would a scientist stalking the
human genome want to be mayor of a small Massachusetts town?
Finding the answer takes Susan through a maze of toxic
secrets including those floating around Renfrow's biotech
company. On her way to confront him, Susan instead finds the
body of his beautiful assistant. Assigned to the case,
Michael reenters Susan's life.
When Michael's suspicions settle on Roddie Baird, yet
another, and favorite, of Susan's clients, Susan elbows her
way into the investigation. She hopes to prove Michael
wrong. As she probes—and lays her own life on the line—Susan
uncovers a crack in everything….
