A tale of the worst kind of greed in the best of families . . .
When Chicago lawyer Kate Millholland agrees to represent the Cavanaugh family business, she finds herself in a nest of vipers.
Jack Cavanaugh runs his fierce clan and the lives of his four children with the same ruthlessness and obsessive attention he gives his company. He's grooming his oldest son Philip to take over the family concern, but it's his hard-nosed daughter Dagny who has the real head for business and his troublesome son Eugene who gets on best with the workers. Then there's Lydia, the youngest, the one with the loudest scream.
As Kate enters the picture, Lydia is threatening to sell her shares, and the family be damned.
That's when the killing starts . . .
