It’s an unorthodox contract. And those can prove deadly.
Craig North, the charismatic, wealthy managing partner of a prestigious Chicago law firm, seeks to hire a companion to provide him with platonic, pleasant camaraderie–and, as he repeatedly assures both his colleagues and himself, nothing more. So he is delighted when the refined and lovely law student Rebecca Bellow applies for the job.
With an executed contract explicitly prohibiting any form of romance between them, Rebecca happily settles into her private, beautiful apartment in North's Georgian mansion, even finding a Mercedes at her disposal.
And as the friendship between employer and companion warms over elegant dinners, animated conversations, and old movies, both think:
"This is just too good to be true!"
Suddenly and inexplicably, Rebecca becomes the target of an international organized crime syndicate.
North–not even an amateur sleuth–leaps in to save her and untangle this deadly mystery, putting his own life on the line. He enlists an eclectic collection of friends to help: Rebecca’s racy ex-roommate, a law school student as well-versed in seduction as jurisprudence; a down-on-his-luck private investigator with a penchant for liquor; even a cabal of vengeful of lawyers hatching a conspiracy against North.
As the murderous mob becomes more brazen, Rebecca and North’s feelings for one another deepen into a love clearly forbidden by their employment contract. But soon that becomes the least of their concerns: have these “Companions by Contract” entered into the deadliest agreement of their lives?
