Woody Allen once said, “There are three sexes: men, women and lawyers.” Woody never worked in a big law firm. Sexual secrets threaten to blow up Sweeny, Owens & Boyle, the Wall Street law firm at the center of Terminal Ambition, A Maggie Mahoney Novel. Sexual harassment is routine there, but disclosure of the firm chairman’s kink could disqualify him as the next U. S. Attorney General. He’s lined up for confirmation hearings when female partner Maggie Mahoney uncovers the bargain he made to hide his secret. Panicked, he ups the ante to try to buy her silence. If ambition rules, can justice prevail?
What readers are saying:
