The Devil Wears Prada meets Wall Street in Bond Girl—a hilarious, fast–paced race through the jungle of high finance in four–inch heels. An author who spent ten years working on Wall Street, Erin Duffy has parlayed her stock market savvy into a fresh, hip, funny, and sexy novel about a bright, young, newly minted B-school graduate’s rise at one of the Street’s most prestigious brokerage firms—only to confront the possible destruction of her dreams in the infamous 2008 financial bust. Bond Girl is a blue chip hoot for anyone who loves smart and fun contemporary woman’s fiction.
