Spin Patterson is a Texas Golden Boy who has it all-a company he's inherited from his father-in-law and built into a multi-billion dollar goliath, a wife as glamorous as she is ruthless-and a mysterious past. He also has a beautiful mistress, Tacoma Reed, a briliant part-Cherokee woman with ambitions of her own. When Spin's wife Audrey files for divorce and threatens to sue him for everything he's worth, he must protect his empire-even if it means resorting to fraud and violence. Max McLennon, Spin's devoted protege and executive assistant, has grown up in the shadow of oil rigs where he's seen his father killed and his brother horribly maimed. Now, as he watches the employees of his company threatened with bankruptcy by the very man he has admired like a father, he is forced to choose between loyalty and justice-between his mentor and the families and friends he grew up with. His choice must be made, but not without risking his own life and the life of the woman he loves.
