Description
Jack Whitman, thirty-five, is already a top player inside the country's largest media-entertainment empire. Several years earlier, Jack's pregnant wife was killed in a senseless spasm of New York City violence. In his grief, Jack's blind fury has become blind ambition.
Enter Dolores Salcines. One night, returning from work, Jack sees a beautiful, ravaged woman and her child sitting across from him on the subway. Against every rule of urban survival, against his proper judgment, against the dictates of his class, Jack thrusts his business card at her. Soon he rescues Dolores and her daughter from their Times Square hotel - to take them into his home.
But as Jack falls in love with Dolores and begins to learn her secret history, he finds himself caught in the middle of a corporate coup. His scheming CEO is determined to push aside the company's aged but cunning Chairman to make way for a merger with the Corporation's German-Japanese counterpart. That deal will make the new company the next century's worldwide media colossus.
Soon after Jack discovers the Chairman has his own designs on him, he is confronted by Dolores's jealous, street-smart husband, Hector. Jack finds his life spinning wildly out of control - until he must fight not just for his job and for Dolores, but quite possibly for his life.
