Storyline

Naomi Bishop is an investment banker determined to overcome a previous stain to her professional reputation, which is a challenge in the male dominated financial sector she works in. As Naomi in that spirit makes her move managing a burgeoning new tech IPO, she has to endure not only the condescension of her colleagues, but also her imperious client even as troubling new developments cloud the venture's future. Against that, the probing of a college friend turned Federal investment law prosecutor and the conniving of her double-dealing boyfriend seem to be manageable complications, until a betrayal by a trusted colleague threatens to ruin everything.

Go See This Wall Street Drama
1 August 2016 | by sailsfunSee all my reviews

This was an engaging, tense Wall Street drama where it is hard to tell who is good and who is bad, yet some how you like them all. Not like the usual money-is-evil movie. But rather a good look in the real lives of professional women on Wall Street or elsewhere. I have lived that life on Wall Street and in Industry. If a client seeks something outside the box, how do you maintain your integrity and retain the relationship. If there is an opportunity to pass just a tiny bit of inside information to a friend, what should you do? Different characters go different ways in this one. The actors were believable and interesting. The plot was tight and fast paced. The mystery was complex but comprehensible. The outcome unexpected. We found ourselves wondering what was going to happen to the characters and wishing for more. Please someone buy it and turn it into dramatic series!
