Elizabeth Keener never expected to be running the world’s first all-female hedge fund – especially not at the notorious investment firm, AlphaCap. Looming over London’s Square Mile from a gleaming skyscraper, the all-male hedge fund managers – the so-called Alpha Captains – have become a byword for ruthless profit-making, loathed and lionized in equal measure.
Of course, a company this influential has many enemies – from the masked protestors camped outside its offices to national governments. But when Elizabeth’s colleagues start dying mysteriously and her forgotten past returns to haunt her, the emergence of a strange symbol, shaped like a uterus, leads her to uncover an ancient secret: a society of women powerful enough to shatter any glass ceiling in a battle to save the world.
The only question is: can they save Elizabeth from herself?
Blending satire and psychological suspense, Career Girl is a kick-ass feminist thriller for our times. Sophie Kane takes us on a bold, smart, addictive ride through a man’s world where being a woman in a killer suit has never been more deadly.
