Summary (From the publisher):

Maggie Mahoney wants justice for women at her law firm. The firm chairman wants to be Attorney General. Only one can win.

Sweeney, Owens & Boyle sits at the top of Wall Street law firms. Brilliant and beautiful, Maggie Mahoney became a partner and the trophy wife of its managing attorney. Her husband's sudden death renders Maggie an outsider with the firm's male establishment and creates a power vacuum.

Obsessed with becoming the next Attorney General, firm chairman Andy Anderson chooses a surprising replacement: Jack Slattery, a reputed sexist. Jack's background as a former criminal prosecutor hardly qualifies him for such a prominent position in Sweeney, Owens. Maggie suspects Jack has something on Andy, but what is it?

Andy's ambition drives him to desperate measures. To whitewash women's treatment at the firm, he trumps up a committee to "investigate" their status and insists Maggie serve. Her discovery of widespread sexual harassment and discrimination threatens Andy's goal. His effort to hide these incidents forces Maggie to dig for evidence. With proof of his misconduct in hand, Maggie demands justice, but it comes at a high price.
