About Back to Back II: Mia’s Revenge
In this novel we return to Mia Blanken, the oil-trading heroine of Back to Back. She has just finished testifying against Kurt (the villain of Back to Back), is completely bankrupt, and utterly depressed. Alarmed by her despondency, Mia’s best friend Lisa persuades Mia to get back into the oil business as an independent trader with her own office – and Mia comes up with a new goal. She is going to be the first woman to make a billion dollars.
Her pursuit of this path, however, is soon leading Mia astray. She sleeps with other oil traders to learn their trading secrets, (making major enemies of them en route); fights with Lisa, her only true friend; and develops worrying gambling and drinking habits. At her lowest ebb, Mia even marries a man who won her hand in a gambling bet. It seems nothing can drag Mia out of a downward spiral that sees her gambling with drink, bankruptcy and even death. Can Mia save herself, before it’s too late?
