For two decades, Milo Peters successfully scales a twenty-billion-dollar corporate ladder, largely igring the unseemly compromises and steady erosion of principles that his climb to the top entails. He can't allow himself to think about such things; it hurts too much. Everything changes with a promotion to corporate headquarters back in Chicago, home to countless painful memories: of his father and old world values ... of a young woman and a relationship squandered ... of all the things Milo Peters had meant to be. What better setting for a midlife nuclear meltdown? Nursing ather hangover, Milo heads to Ashton's, the diner where he and his friends had gathered every week during college. There, he runs into Luke Papadakis, his closest childhood friend. Amid the multiplying uncertainties in his life, a dose of Luke is exactly what Milo needs. However, this meeting is chance reunion. Luke works for the government and is part of a secret investigation into financial improprieties inside Milo's corporation. He wants Milo to become an informant-a whistleblower-and sacrifice everything he has spent his life working toward. Milo faces the most difficult decision of his life, and the ramifications of his decision will prove to be more devastating than he could ever anticipate.
