Welcome to Manhattan, where the paychecks are the biggest, the egos even bigger, and nice guys finish last. Or do they?
When Robert Maxx, billionaire real estate mogul and world-class bully, hires low-key, bookish David Collins as his ghostwriter, he thinks he’s taking on one more flunkey he can push around. And, for a while, that’s exactly what he does. But in relationships defined by power, the leverage has a way of shifting…
As Max’s empire, built on lies and debt, begins to wobble, Collins realizes that what had seemed a mere hack assignment might turn out to be his last best chance to write a book of real importance. And the stage is set for deadly conflict between a fallen idol desperate to conceal the truth and a writer obsessed with an inside story only he can tell.
