The Devil Wears Prada meets Entourage in this sharp, glitzy ride through the backstabbing and ambitious world of a literary agent. Sassy super-agent Tess Drake has worked hard to make a name for herself in the glamorous yet cut-throat entertainment industry. As part of a multinational firm, she deals with some of the world's biggest egos-and that's just those inside the agency. When Tess' sworn enemy, Cosima Tate, takes over the firm after the mysterious death of a senior partner, Tess thinks it's time to get out and start her own agency. But to make it, she needs to take her biggest client with her-and Cosima is not about to let that happen. Money, power, pride, and personal vendettas are in play, and Cosmia will stop at nothing to see Tess go down in flames. With an unsolved murder investigation going, a secret affair to protect, and her career at stake, Tess is going to need plenty of guts to make it in this fast-paced, high-stakes game of risk and revenge. Can she jump ship and survive, or is she about to be crushed under Cosima's stilettoed heel?

Professional reviews

"Kate Reading's capable narration lends credibility to this wacky novel about a sexy literary agent in London. Tess Drake's ambition to launch her own agency is bungled when her secret lover's wife becomes her boss and her star client is ruined by allegations of plagiarism. Reading tones down the over-the-top characters, especially Tess's cold-blooded but sharp-witted boss and Tess's desperately dark writer friend. Reading's narration lends an endearing note to Tess's aspirations in the fast-paced, glamorous world of international publishing as depicted in this novel. It's a world in which everyone sleeps with everyone else and success is based mostly on connections and ruthless drive. Listeners will root for Tess's success despite their doubts about whether she deserves it. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
