One bullet changed her life In a heart-stopping moment she'd never stop reliving, Risa Taylor lost everything—her partner, her friends, her career and her self-confidence. The family she was never close to has taken a step back and there's nowhere else to turn. Things can't get much worse. Except, of course, they can. Every officer-involved shooting is investigated by Internal Affairs, and the man in charge is Grady Wilson, who's known for his unorthodox methods and his unquestionable results. At first glance, the case seems like a slam dunk, especially when the ballistics report shows that the bullet that killed her partner came from Risa's gun. But a phone call from an anonymous informant, and the feelings he starts to have for Risa, have Grady looking a little deeper, determined to find out what really happened on that steamy night in Houston.

A man will do almost anything for ninety million dollars. So will its rightful owners. They found him in a small town in Brazil, near the border with Paraguay. He had a new name, Danilo Silva, and his appearance had been changed by plastic surgery. The search had taken four years. They'd chased him around the world, always just missing him. It had cost their clients $3.5 million. But so far none of them had complained. The man they were about to kidnap had not always been called Danilo Silva. Before he had had another life, a life which ended in a car crash in February 1992. His gravestone lay in a cemetry in Biloxi, Mississippi. His name before his death was Patrick S. Lanigan. He had been a partner at an up-and-coming law firm. He had a pretty wife, a young daughter, and a bright future. Six weeks after his death, $90 million disappeared from the law firm. It was then that his partners knew he was still alive. And the chase was on...

Ingrid Yung's life is full of firsts. A first-generation Chinese American, the first lawyer in her family, she's about to collect the holy grail of "firsts" and become the first minority woman to make partner at the venerable old Wall Street law firm Parsons Valentine & Hunt. Ingrid has perfected the art of "passing" and seamlessly blends into the old-boy corporate culture. She gamely banters in the corporate cafeteria, plays in the firm softball league, and earnestly racks up her billable hours. But when an offensive incident at the summer outing threatens the firm's reputation, Ingrid's outsider status is suddenly thrown into sharp relief. Scrambling to do damage control, Parsons Valentine announces a new Diversity and Inclusion Initiative, commanding Ingrid to spearhead the effort. Only she's about to close an enormous transaction that was to be her final step in securing partnership. For the first time, Ingrid must question her place in the firm. Pitted against her colleagues, including her golden-boy boyfriend, Ingrid begins to wonder whether the prestige of partnership is worth breaching her ethics. But in The Partner Track by Helen Wan, can Ingrid risk throwing away the American dream that is finally within her reach?
