When she kisses her daughters good-bye and heads downtown. Susan Given is the very model of a modern crime-fighter --- even if her designer suits and string of pearls seem more suited to the country-club set. Seizing the ill-gotten gains of the city's most ruthless crime lords is all in a day's work for the head of the Asset Forfeiture Unit. But some things are not part of her workaday world --- like homicide.
In the midst of a headline-making case, a Mob hit strikes close to home --- and Susan comes face-to-face with a corpse. Suddenly, her every adversary seems out to get her. There's her insanely jealous colleague --- a woman with the brains of a bimbo but the guts of a kamikaze. There's Susan's almost-ex-spouse, a psychiatrist who's casing her better than the CIA. There's the Mob, who have her on their "Most Wanted" list.
Then, there's Michael Roth, her summer fling who appears nightly in Susan's dreams. Now he's flown in from California to offer a crash course in pulp-fiction crime-fighting straight out of Hollywood. As her sensible self meets her adventurous side, Susan's not-so-average working mom's life is about to spin perilously, exhilarating out of control --- in a page-turner that delivers laughs and thrills in equal measures.
