A restless young woman thinks she’s found a free ride to
happiness and adventure. But it’s a trip that may land her
in prison—or worse…
When twenty-eight-year-old Trudy Bell lands a secretarial
position at a travel agency, she feels like a new woman.
And her warm, friendly personality soon wins her the
adoration of her colleagues—with one exception. Ann
Oliver, the only other African American employee, is a
high-level manager who despises the low-income black
experience Trudy represents. But no one is going to ruin
Trudy’s new life. In fact, she’s found a way to make it
even better. As the secretary who processes the agency’s
bills, Trudy has easy access to company credit cards.
At first, Trudy’s deception involves a few high-priced
lunches, but it soon expands to include weekend “business
trips” to exotic locations. Before long she’s leading a
double-life—Ann’s life—complete with a secret apartment
where she entertains the men she meets at upscale bars.
But their worlds collide the night Trudy brings home the
wrong man—one who has an angry score to settle. With Ann.
Now, unless Trudy can convince him she’s not the woman
he’s after, she may pay the highest price of all…
