Sexual Harassment, Identity Theft, and
Political Intrigue Combine in High-Tech Legal Thriller
NEW YORK: It starts with a simple unwanted kiss…and
evolves into a labyrinthine trail of forgery and illusion…a
hijacked identity, a corruption scandal involving a U.S. Senator
accused of channeling illegal benefits to a shady South American
firm…even kidnapping and murder. Wearing
the Spider by Susan Schaab, first in a series
of fiction titles from Galavant Press, may be the only novel
to combine elements of sexual harassment, identity theft,
and political scandal into one sophisticated plot set in the
hard-driving corporate culture.
Evie Sullivan, a rising legal star on the fast track to partnership
at her respected New York law firm, is being set up for a
fall…a BIG fall. Besieged initially with seemingly innocuous
recordkeeping errors, she overhears portions of a shocking
telephone conversation. Then, she is blindsided by discoveries
that are much more troubling: impersonation of her email username
and unmistakable sabotage of one of her client projects causing
a groundswell of doubt within the firm about her competence.
Once her name is linked to a deal containing a questionable,
and possibly illegal, arrangement, she has no choice but to
conduct her own clandestine investigation to clear her name.
An FBI agent confronts her with tough questions about murder
and fraud for which she has no answers. As she searches for
the truth, the electronic evidence shifts and transforms behind
a dynamic veil of security—and certain pieces of the
puzzle simply disappear. How will she gather tangible evidence
to prove her innocence among the elusive clues and carefully
woven traps? At stake: not only her professional reputation
and her future with the firm, not only a commission worth
$25 million—but several lives.
In this intricately plotted and memorable thriller, attorney
and former computer consultant Susan Schaab draws on her expertise
in intellectual property and technology law as well as computer
systems design to create a fast-paced and thoroughly believable
journey through corruption and intrigue…an exhilarating
joyride that explores the complex relationships in a big-city
law firm, where sexual harassment and manipulation may be
more common than any statistics suggest.
