From the Publisher
Annotation A former Los Angeles Times reporter who succeeded as a novelist with the Eve Diamond series, Denise Hamilton brings her savvy to the standalone thriller page with DAMAGE CONTROL. Maggie Silver has been hustling to get ahead at the So Cal PR firm where she has been working as a crisis consultant. She has bills to pay and an ailing mother to support, but she also just likes to do good work. So when a big case lands in her lap, she jumps at the opportunity to run damage control for a powerful politician whose aid has been murdered. Making things even more interesting, this man is the father of her high school best friend, Anabelle. The two young friends liked to party, and they got mixed up in something that has haunted them ever since. Now these old demons resurface as Maggie races to solve a murder and keep her job.
Editors Note An engrossing story of teenage friendship and adult betrayal, featuring a high-powered crisis consultant who gets swept up in murder and scandal involving a wealthy political family.Maggie Silver is solidly middle class, with a mortgage to pay and an ill mother to support. She is doing her best to scramble up the ladder at an elite PR firm in Southern California whose clients include movie stars and famous athletes. Now, Maggie tackles her toughest client yet: Senator Henry Paxton, a distinguished statesman who is also the father of Anabelle, Maggie's estranged best friend from high school.     Senator Paxton's young female aide has been found murdered, and Maggie must run damage control to prevent the scandal from growing. Thrown back into the Paxtons' glamorous world, Maggie is 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.
