DAMAGE CONTROL by Denise Hamilton - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Denise Hamilton.
Critically acclaimed author Denise Hamilton weaves an engrossing
story of teenage friendship and adult betrayal, featuring a high-powered
public relations executive who gets swept up in murder and scandal
involving a political family.
Maggie Silver is solidly
middle class, with a mortgage to pay and an ill mother to support. She
does her best to scramble up the ladder at an exclusive, high-powered PR
firm in Southern California, whose clients are movie stars and famous
athletes. Now, Maggie is being asked to take on her toughest client yet:
Senator Henry Paxton, distinguished statesman from Southern California,
who also happens to be the father of Anabelle, Maggie’s former high
school best friend.
Senator Paxton’s young, female aide has been
found murdered, and it is up to Maggie to run damage control and
prevent a scandal. Thrown back into the Paxtons’ glamorous world, Maggie
is unexpectedly flooded with memories from the stormy years in high
school when her friendship with Anabelle was dramatically severed after a
tragedy that neither of them has been able to forget. As Maggie gets
further embroiled in the lives of the Paxtons, she realizes that the
ties of her old friendship are stronger than she thinks.
Riveting and suspense-filled, Damage Control examines our craving for celebrity and spectacle and how far the bonds of friendship can stretch before they break forever.
