Overview
Ambitious, brilliant, and beautiful, Alex Sontheim is the star of Wall Street -- and she knows it. So when Levy Manhattan Investments taps her to take their firm to the next level, she can name her price -- but she may be getting in over her head. Preoccupied by her steamy relationship with handsome real-estate mogul Sergio Vitali, Alex is blind to the reality that behind LMI's glittering facade is a dangerous criminal cartel -- and it expects more than just top-notch work and discretion. Desperate to put an end to this organized crime, New York's crusading mayor needs someone on the inside, and no one is in deeper than Alex. But to bring her new employer to justice, Alex will have to risk more than just her job and her reputation -- she'll risk her life.

Originally self-published in 2005, Neuhaus’s German debut lacks the polish of her second novel, Snow White Must Die, which was published in the U.S. in 2012. In 1998, talented but naïve investment banker Alex Sontheim, a 35-year-old German, switches jobs from Morgan Stanley to Levy Manhattan, where she soon proves her worth by making three spectacular deals. Unfortunately, she falls for Sergio Vitali, a handsome New York real estate tycoon and brutal mob boss, who is as possessive as he is ruthless. Alex’s desire for independence alone would be an affront to the mobster, but it’s her knowledge of Sergio’s crimes, from insider trading to murder, that makes her a threat that Sergio will do anything to eliminate. Conveniently, Alex also falls for the city’s mayor, a man of operatic flaws and virtues. A fast-paced but often ludicrous plot goes hand in hand with a stereotypical portrait of New York. (June)
