The Fall Out

A novel by

International Financial Services Centre, Dublin, 2011

The dust has barely settled on the banking crisis when two letters arrive in the offices of German Commercial Bank DKB.

Kate O'Brien joined the bank one month earlier. Back to work after a short break to have her children, she doesn't want stress, she doesn't want drama, she just wants to do her job and go home. But it soon becomes apparent that she might not be the only one with her own agenda.

Mary Lawlor has had enough. She has worked at DKB long enough to be able to see that it's happening again, and this time she won't stand for it. She is sick of being taken advantage of and, frankly, it's got to stop.

Leona Blake is in charge. She knows that she is not popular and, up to now, she hasn't really cared. She has a job to do and she is going to do it no matter what the cost. Only now, as her whole world starts to implode, does she finally realise that the price just might have been too high.

Olivia Sharpe is finally starting to write things down. She has been treated very badly, and now is her chance to take control of her life again and get justice for both herself and her children. What happened to her was wrong and someone needs to pay. Don't they?
