I n Winters's entertaining latest View Park novel, the Chase family plunges to new lows of deviousness. Patriarch Steven Chase, CEO of an ever-expanding upscale beauty chain, wishes to keep his grown sons on a tight leash and within the family company. However, Kimberly, wife of eldest son Michael, is intent on bringing down her mother-in-law, and younger son Carter goes to dangerous lengths to hide a dark secret from his fiancée. Add to the mix Steven's two grown daughters: Leigh, a do-gooder doctor whose idealism frustrates her mother, and Haley, a spoiled club kid who gets involved with a dangerous club owner, and trouble is never far away. As the plots converge, Steven stands to lose his mini-empire and family. Though the characters function as embodiments of their faults, the pacing is fast and the drama unrelenting. (July)
