In this this page-turning spin-off prequel to the Playing Dirty and Notorious duology, national bestselling author Kiki Swinson burns up the page with calculating characters, ingenious plot twists, and a ruthless depiction of Southern conniving, rising—and taking the final hard fall. Now she brings you back to the 1990s at the start of wild-card lawyer Yoshi Lomax's career, as her first elite white-shoe-law job puts an inescapable target on her back…
No one suspects. . . Never one to play by any rules, Yoshi Lomax is determined to make good at an internship with one of Manhattan's most prestigious law firms. She's being mentored by the brilliant twin brother legal lights who are her parents’ friends. And with her unexpected knack for helping the city's wealthy, powerful clients finagle their way out of major trouble, even she is surprised at how bright her future shines . . .
No one will tell. . . Until Yoshi discovers the firm uses any means necessary to get their clients off—including kidnapping, life-destroying scandal, and murder. And the dark heart of the company is a super-secret society fueled by dangerous desires that have no limit—and no way out. Even for the ever-resourceful, ethically-dubious Yoshi, this is bad news she wants no part of . . .
No one can survive. . . Now armed with secrets too lethal too keep, Yoshi will leverage all her skill and unpredictable maneuvers to take down the twins. But with those she cares about most on the firing line, will her one unthinkable play too far be the move that takes her down for good?
