Bad Money

Mary Kersey has burst through the glass ceiling. She has a high-profile City job giving strategic advice to banks. She’s the family breadwinner, a loving wife and a caring mother to her daughter Gracie, and she struggles to find the right balance between her work and her home life.

She knows that the company her firm is working with was acquired after manipulation of the share price plus a good deal of help from a dodgy hedge fund. She finds herself torn every which way as husband, daughter, boss, her own conscience – all clamour for her attention.

When matters take a dark turn, Mary discovers just how vulnerable she is. Standing between men and their money is a very dangerous place to be…
