Astrid Wentworth is at the top of her game. A superstar trader in the male-dominated world of banking and high finance. She is ruthless and relentless, but she’s always played by the boys’ rules to get to the top.
So when Astrid takes on protégée Priya, she is the perfect person to help this ambitious young woman navigate the industry — as long as Priya’s willing to listen.
