Looking forward to Southern California and working for her long-time friend, Rich Richmond, she receives shocking news just before her arrival: Rich is hospitalized following a serious car accident.
Left to start on her own, Teri finds the company she once loved is now a mis-managed snake-pit, infested with self-indulged senior executives reveling in massive bonuses.

Teri uses her problem-solving skills for detective work to navigate a labyrinth of bizarre business practices and corporate deceit. Standing up to manipulation and intimidation escalates to a final showdown with a malicious Executive VP, resulting in mortal peril and a shattering confrontation with her past.
