When Belinda Hennessey moves to Atlanta after a humiliating personal setback, she’s eager to start over: new surroundings, new job, new friends. To help adjust to the big city traffic, she joins a carpool with three other women in her office, who give her a crash course on maneuvering the maze of roads named “Peachtree” and tips on navigating office politics, which includes tiptoeing around their tyrannical boss.
Belinda tries desperately to fit in, and even manages to meet a couple of eligible men. Yet fate keeps conspiring against her. Her relationships become more problematic, and when bizarre accidents begin to occur, she starts to think she might be cursed. But when Belinda learns the woman she replaced in the carpool died under mysterious circumstances, she begins to think she’s being targeted—and not for Employee of the Year.

For the airline executives finalizing a merger that would make news in the business world, the nine a.m. meeting would be a major milestone. But after marketing VP Paul Rogan walked into the plush conference room, strapped with explosives, the headlines told of death and destruction instead. The NYPSD’s Eve Dallas confirms that Rogan was cruelly coerced by two masked men holding his family hostage. His motive was saving his wife and daughter—but what was the motive of the masked men?
Despite the chaos and bad publicity, blowing up one meeting isn’t going to put the brakes on the merger. All it’s accomplished is shattering a lot of innocent lives. Now, with the help of her billionaire husband Roarke, Eve must untangle the reason for an inexplicable act of terror, look at suspects inside and outside both corporations, and determine whether the root of this crime lies in simple sabotage, or something far more complex and twisted.
