Baker & Taylor San Francisco private eye Catherine Sayler and her partner, Jesse Price, are called in by a computer firm to investigate high-tech sexual harassment that soon turns deadly
Blackwell North Amer Acclaimed Anthony Award nominee Linda Grant returns with a new Catherine Sayler novel that takes the San Francisco private investigator into the most personally threatening case of her career. Catherine is a woman who has achieved success in a man's world. She has her own business and can take care of herself in almost any situation. She, of all people, should be an unlikely target of sexual harassment. But sexual harassment can spread rapidly and in unexpected ways, as Catherine learns when she agrees to work undercover at Systech Financial Applications in order to discover who is sending suggestive messages on the company's electronic mail system. Catherine thinks she knows who's behind the pranks, but when she and several of her female colleagues receive "snuff" photographs of women who are apparently being tortured and killed, she realizes the answers to the problems at Systech may not be as simple as she believed. The original pranks seem to have been inspired by a woman sales manager's controversial promotion to a senior position, but surely there's more at stake in this escalating madness than a job? Before Catherine can convince anyone that the photos represent a serious danger, the killer dispatches the first victim. Catherine realizes that she, too, has become a potential target. Facing a sadistic murderer who will surely strike again, she must decide whether to pull out while she can, or to stay and risk her own life and the lives of those she loves. As the killer plays twisted games directed at Catherine, she calls upon her deepest reserves of courage and strength for the one-on-one confrontation that is almost sure to come. Author Linda Grant moves in dramatic new directions in A Woman's Place, adding texture and tension to one of the most satisfying and powerful series in contemporary crime fiction.
