It is actually not advisable to go into business with friends without a distinct exit plan. It is far too easy for the friendships to dissolve and things can get very messy as happens in this novel. Christopher Parker is one of those entrepreneurs who wants it all and does things that ultimately he is ashamed of having done. He accuses one of the other partners of stealing money from the firm and effectively ends his career as an architect. The other partner realizes that there is something fishy going on-leaves on his own and starts his own firm. Now, many years later people are getting badly hurt-they are all from Christopher's firm. As Chris tries to figure out who is trying to take down his firm he ends up getting help from someone in his past.
So who is the person trying to take Christopher and his firm down? I did not guess who done it until near the end
Obviously I am not going to tell you-you will just have to read this for yourselves. I did find this to be a fast read and would be great for a day at the beach or better yet--while you are heading to work on a subway or train-or perhaps your lunch hour and breaks for a day or two----

Christopher Parker’s architectural firm is in trouble. Business has dwindled during the recession. The firm’s budget is decreasing at a breakneck pace. Employees fear their funds are being tampered with, and attacks on executives outside of his firm are resulting in murder. Caught in a frightening downward spiral, Christopher, operating only on suspicions, works desperately to unravel the mystery. But time is running out on Christopher in more ways than one. While a saboteur threatens his career, a serious illness threatens his life. Christopher has to find the culprit and make peace with those he has hurt before it’s too late. And help comes from the unlikeliest of sources.
