Dr. Lydia "Dia" Fenner is a newly minted PhD in economics who takes her first job with the U.S. Treasury Department. Her assignment is to design policies to get the economy out of its slump before the next election. But when the policies Dia recommends are implemented, they don't work. Something underhanded is going on that wasn't covered in her Ivy League education.
Dia enters a race against time as she tries to determine who, or what, is trying to sabotage the economy. Along the way she must contend with a vengeful ex-boyfriend, an arrogant boss, an ambitious senator, and a mysterious, yet attractive, colleague. The action spans the halls of power in Washington, D.C., to the rolling hills of rural Virginia as Dia attempts to unravel the plot against the troubled economy.
Will she succeed, or will she too become a target-and a victim?
