"I'm crazy about Bond Girl. Erin Duffy is a fresh, funny, and fabulous new voice."
--Adriana Trigiani, author of Brava, Valentine

The Devil Wears Prada meets Wall Street in Bond Girl--a hilarious, fast-paced race through the jungle of high finance in four-inch heels. An author who spent ten years working on Wall Street, Erin Duffy has parlayed her stock market savvy into a fresh, hip, funny, and sexy novel about a bright, young, newly minted B-school graduate's rise at one of the Street's most prestigious brokerage firms--only to confront the possible destruction of her dreams in the infamous 2008 financial bust. Bond Girl is a blue chip hoot for anyone who loves smart and fun contemporary woman's fiction.
