Breach of Trust takes us into the '90s-style looting and plundering of a multimillion-dollar trust, an intricate conspiracy fueled by financial cunning and lethal greed, set against an unexpected white-hot love affair between Dan Casella, street fighter turned corporate lawyer, and Jennifer Lodge, his resourceful, winsome associate.
A recent law school graduate, Jennifer is thrilled when Dan brings her on board to assist with a major case - the theft of two million dollars from the trust fund of a rival firm's client. Dan's job is to defend Scott Sterling, a naive, well-connected young attorney who swears that he took the money in a desperate attempt to cover up devastating stock market losses in the private investment account of the fund's trustee, coal baron Curtis Mason - who had been like a father to Scott. Now Mason is suing - for fifteen million dollars.
Late work nights and a killer snowstorm bring Dan and Jennifer together - and the passion they've been suppressing finally explodes. But after an intense, unforgettable weekend at Jennifer's rural carriage house, Dan is pulled back into South Philly's streets and a family crisis he can't ignore. Mistaking Dan's strict business ethics for cold-bloodedness, Jennifer makes a crucial career decision, followed by a personal one that will drastically affect her future - and draw her deeper into the case. As their lives and careers intertwine once more, Dan and Jennifer enter a deadly vortex of scandal, jealousy, blackmail, betrayal, and murder - and expose a fraud that will rock the city's legal community, and the very foundations of Philadelphia society.
