High up in Seattle’s most luxurious office tower a powerful woman conceals a dangerous secret. Dana Duke, the CEO of a prestigious staffing firm, offers exquisitely trained executive assistants to the city’s business elite. Her assistants are brilliant, young, and willing to do whatever it takes to advance the agency’s interests. And in return they’re offered pay and perks beyond their wildest dreams.
One wet and windy morning, a new recruit arrives for an interview with the agency. Jessica Warne is twenty-three years old, ambitious, and eager to climb the corporate ladder. But after quitting her dead-end job in a moment of proud defiance she’s found herself in a desperate situation.
When Dana offers Jessica an orientation period at the agency, it seems her troubles might finally be over. But as the demands of the job become increasingly dangerous, and as the consequences of her work turn deadly, she’ll be forced to question everything that she’s been told.
What Readers Are Saying:
I’ve been telling all my coworkers about The Assistant. I can’t wait for part two!
The industrial espionage angle is a fun twist.
The Assistant was scarier and more suspenseful than Cheri’s cozy mysteries.
