A highly anticipated, razor-sharp novel about women in the workplace, the power of Big Tech and the looming threat of foreign espionage.
Julia Lerner is the COO of Tangerine, one of Silicon Valley's biggest tech companies, and an icon to professional women everywhere. She is also a Russian spy. Groomed to reach the upper echelons of American society, Julia now uses her position at Tangerine to funnel information back to Russia's largest intelligence agency.
Alice Lu works as a low-level analyst within Tangerine, having never quite managed to climb the corporate ladder. One afternoon, when performing a server check, Alice discovers some unusual activity and is burdened with two powerful but distressing suspicions: Tangerine's privacy settings aren't as rigorous as the company claims and the person abusing this loophole might be Julia Lerner herself. Now, Alice must decide what to do with this information - before Julia finds out she has it.
