What would you do if you had the opportunity to be rid of the individual you most hated? The one who preyed on your every weakness. The one who impeded your career advancement. The lech who demanded you sleep with him or say good bye to your employment.
I enjoyed this novel of psychological suspense. The character development was great. Hawthorne was a man easy to hate, preying on women who needed his influence to advance in their careers. And in this era of "me too," it was easy to empathize with Sarah, Hawthorne's latest target.
I liked the way the plot developed. There were plenty of twists and turns and surprises that kept me reading. The only aspect that was a disappointment was the somewhat fast and unbelievable ending.
