From the twice weekly flights to the American Express expense accounts, the Michelin star restaurants to the four diamond hotels; the life of a consultant in one of America’s top consulting firms is one bespoke Brooks Brothers suit away from rock star infamy. The world is yours for the taking; and all that it will cost you is everything that you are. Up in the air is crashing down.
Arnet Jones was willing to pay that price. Intellectually superior and detrimentally naïve, Arnet was living a drowning life after graduating from law school at the height of the recession. Unemployed, living at home with her mother and severely in debt, her life was on a pathetically wasteful track; until one unfortunate call from a recruiter at Vaile and Tuffs, the country’s most prestigious consulting firm, lead to the life of her fantasies, and the career of her nightmares.
Armed only with a ravenous desire to stand on her own two feet and conquer the city that never sleeps, Arnet descends into a world of billion dollar deals, million dollar salaries, and indulgent egos, gorging themselves on the excesses that can only come from servicing clients engraved on the Fortune Top 20 list. But before Arnet can firmly plant her stiletto graced feet on the gilded marble pinnacle of corporate success, she must navigate the titans of Vaile and Tuffs, and their late night, back alley deals with a multi-billion dollar bank neck deep in America’s worst housing crisis, which threatens to destroy her career and undo the firm at its core.
