"The new breed ~~~they are the women of the business elite. They're young, smart, and ruthless. They like their husbands and love their work."
"ANTONIA GOWAR is a nom de plume for two executives of a New York bank."
From the dust jacket: "Meet John Kilgour, banking genius, mastermind of the worldwide computer control system Autotran, who brings to mighty GlobeBank the best of the new breed: Lisa Gould, recently graduated from Mount Holyoke and Stanford, Kilgour's personal protegee and GlobeBank's first woman division head; Linda Glover, the beautiful and driven manager who races Lisa up the corporate ladder; Rick Schmidt, a former Marine, as obsessed by his division's bottom line as he had been in Vietnam by his platoon's body count; Sandy Lippert, the brilliant engineer whose inspired design for Autotran can never quite make up for his one human failing; and Jessica Moser, in charge of public relations, whose smooth 'corporate communications' style cannot hide her amusement and disgust at GlobeBank's human toll.
From the grueling, exhilarating pace of GlobeBank's back office, where the world's money changes hands every day, to GlobeBank's glamorous Caribbean retreat, where languid rhythms disguise the momentous decisions that make or break careers-these young stars of Wall Street work together, scheme together, and love together. Must their honor be compromised by the millions at their fingertips? Should their private lives be sacrificed to the future of GlobeBank? Can their marriages survive the pressure of office passions? Will their legendary boss succeed with his new machine?"
