Summary "After years of struggle, Emma Conway is living the dream - a happy second marriage and a great career. She is the driving force behind Acordinol, a hugely successful product that has pharmaceutical giant Percival & Baxter riding high. But her dream life becomes a nightmare when a Wall Street raider threatens P&B with a hostile takeover. Worse, the raider is no ordinary cut-throat, but her ex-husband Josh Katz, father of their 16 year-old son.P&B adopts the fabled Poison Pill strategy to defend against the move. Then a mysteriously tainted batch of Acordinol starts killing people, including P&B's CEO. Emma takes control of P&B's just as their once blue-chip stock goes into free fall. As Emma struggles to win the dangerous game her ex has put in motion, she discovers that nothing is as it appears; like Russian nesting dolls, there are secrets hidden within secrets. Josh's ploy is backed by a Russian oligarch who he owes $500 million, the price of his rescue after the sub-prime collapse. The Russian has covert designs on the holy grail of pharmaceuticals, the first Viagra for women. A secret romance between Emma's son and the oligarch's estranged daughter puts the children in the cross-hairs of their parents' mortal combat. And a conspiracy explodes that threatens to destroy them all. Emma is in a battle -even more desperate than she knows - to save her family, her company, and everything she loves. Glenn Kaplan has written an engaging thriller that will leave readers breathless"-- Provided by publisher.
"After years of struggle, Emma Conway is living the dream--a happy second marriage and a great career. She is the driving force behind Acordinol, a hugely successful painkiller that has pharmaceutical giant Percival & Baxter riding high. But her dream becomes a nightmare when a Wall Street raider threatens her company with a hostile takeover. Worse, the raider is no ordinary cutthroat, but her ex-husband Josh Katz, father of their sixteen-year-old son. P&B goes for a Poison Pill defense. But when a mysteriously tainted batch of Acordinol starts killing people, including P&B's CEO, Emma is put in command just as the price of the firm's once blue-chip stock goes into free fall. As Emma struggles to win at her ex's dangerous game, she discovers secrets hidden within secrets. The big one is that Josh's ploy is backed by a Russian oligarch whose half-billion-dollar loan rescued Josh after the subprime collapse. The Russian lusts for the holy grail of pharmaceuticals, the first Viagra for women. At the same time, a secret romance between Emma's son and the oligarch's estranged daughter puts the young people into the crosshairs of their parents' mortal combat. Emma faces the fight of her life--to save her family, her company, and everything she loves"-- Provided by publisher.
