Sic transit gloria. Beth Swahn, a young lawyer, makes a rookie mistake: She believes her client. While basking in the glory of winning a $100 million judgment for a US division of C. K. Leung's Chinese conglomerate, Beth realizes that because of her naïveté, Leonard Sloane, president of the division, has absconded to the Caribbean with his banker girlfriend and $70 million of the judgment money. Shortly thereafter, they are both presumed dead when a Mayday call to the Coast Guard reports the sinking of their yacht.
Stunned, furious, and determined to retrieve Leung's money and save her firm from bankruptcy, Beth investigates her way through a maze of money laundering and white-collar corruption. When the trail leads her to Sloane's handsome son, she is torn between her attraction to him and her fear that he may be involved in the theft. Beth is not alone in her search for the money. C. K. Leung is also involved, because he doubts Beth's innocence. When her investigation moves to a critical level and a missing encrypted file comes to light that has the power to ignite a geopolitical firestorm, Leung becomes convinced that Beth is a party to Sloane's scheme, and her life becomes violently threatened.

It was just OK
Would you try another book from Michael Rudolph and/or Mark Deakins?
I'm not sure. There were parts of this story that were intriguing, but a lot of parts that really dragged.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
The water storm scene may have been interesting to people who sail, but for me, I just found it really boring.
Did Mark Deakins do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
It was tough for him, because he was a male voicing a female lead. He did a good job, but I would have preferred a female voice.
