A New & Noteworthy pick. Revenge can be sweet…and very dangerous. Sarah, a professor, saves a young girl in trouble. In repayment, all it takes is a 29-second phone call to remove her sexual predator boss who holds Sarah’s future in his hands. Is this the answer to her problems?

A new page-turner from the author of "Lies." This time the main character is a college professor locked into a lower level on the hierarchy by a the misogynist. Sarah is a very likable character and it is easy to feel her anguish. The addition of the 29 seconds offer is an interesting plot device and ratchets up the stakes. Kept me on the edge of my seat all the way to the end.
