When Mara’s dream job turns into her worst nightmare, she realizes it’s not only her livelihood at stake—it’s also her life.
Real estate newbie, Mara Butler, can’t believe her luck when she lands a position with one of Chicago’s top realtors, Jacqueline Hendersen. But Jacqueline’s polished exterior conceals her crooked moral compass and relentless quest to win the prestigious Top Producer Award. Under Jacqueline’s tutelage, Mara earns enough money to pay for her new condo and her sister’s mounting medical bills. Meanwhile, she entangles herself in her mentor’s unorthodox methods of creating business.
When a competing realtor ends up dead, Mara fears she might be Jacqueline’s next victim. Backed into a corner by her involvement in Jacqueline’s scandals, Mara faces a high-stakes dilemma. Will she risk everything she has attained, or play along in Jacqueline’s murderous game? Because there can only be one Top Producer.
