A working mom struggles to balance the demands of her life Jul 12, 2007
Fiona Stewart has her hands full. Her marriage is on the verge of collapse, she's trying to be an involved mother to her two girls, and she's got a full-time career to pursue. Even so, she's balancing everything just fine, until she takes over an account that doesn't quite add up. When she starts trying to investigate the discrepencies, the threats start coming. The pressure builds, and Fiona's attempts to figure out the riddle only make things worse. Suddenly, she's unable to cope with all her responsibilities, and even her life is in danger.
An interesting thriller about corporate fraud and people who are willing to commit violence to protect their easy money. Fiona is a flawed character (as are many of the characters here), which makes her all the more believable. In the end she perseveres against a nasty enemy, but it is her love for her family that gives her the will and strength to do so. And while the various affairs (of which there are plenty) do seem gratuitous, they do reinforce the feeling that these people aren't perfect, but have flaws, just like everyone.
