Product description

From the Inside Flap

Control. Jack wanted it back. It was ripped away long ago….So this life of Wall Street - a realm where reality and myth intertwined - had taken its toll. On his body. On his soul. After December, he felt beseiged, and it was all random and meaningless, and Jack knew he was falling into the abyss. Jack Maguire had it all: money, power, charm, and the ability to overcome any challenge. Until today. Suddenly Maguire, the CEO of Taylor Drake and one of the most powerful businessmen in America, finds himself helpless -- desperate for bearings. Working ninety hours a week is no help; in fact, the harder he works, the deeper he sinks. His wife, Jennifer, has grown distant. Anne, his teenaged daughter, is depressed. And worst of all, a tragedy struck on Christmas Eve. After years of camraderie and laughter, Jack now suffers alone - a winner overwhelmed with loss. Wry, heartfelt, and deeply poetic, Shadow Fields explores the nature of opposites - life and death, success and failure, hope and fear - but ultimately asks whether these are opposites at all. Indeed, Jack Maguire cries out for an answer, and in the process, he speaks for everyone.
