Mandasue Heller: Broke
A gritty urban thriller about a woman who is in too deep—and the only way out is to be tougher than her foes
Amy’s marriage to Mark isn’t the best—he can’t resist the girls, and he can’t hold down a job. But she doesn’t know just how bad things are until his gambling habit brings the debt collector to her door, and he makes it brutally clear how she can pay off Mark’s debts. Amy’s troubles are only beginning. Another woman wants Mark for herself, and she is ready to steal Amy’s man, her self-respect, and even her children. As the stakes rise, Amy will lose everything, unless she learns to be as hard and ruthless as her enemies.
