Joyce, Janeen and Sissy are three sisters whose lives are about to change. Janeen's world has been turned upside down. First, she's passed over for a promotion, then she learns that the person hired for the position is the man she's been fantasizing about for weeks. Topping things off, for some unknown reason, her husband loses interest in their marriage.

Sissy, the youngest, lives life on the edge. She drops out of law school to pursue a shady real-estate venture with Janeen's husband—and is also involved in a highly profitable prostitution ring.

The eldest, Joyce, is haunted by memories of the past and is debating whether to reveal her family's deep dark secrets. Doing so, she fears, could destroy her sisters. What's a woman to do when faced with such life-altering decisions?

Victor McGlothin has written a superb, true-to-life book. With a masterfully created plot, it explores the turbulent lives of three courageous women. This book offers a gripping, emotional glimpse into the dark world of the unknown. (Oct., 304 pp., $24.95)
