You wouldn't want to upset these girls. Revenge is their game and they've gotten good at it. When one of their support group is injured and left to die, they take umbrage.

There's Polly, a widow with stock market trading expertise; Kat, a woman whose breast implants get in the way of her running; Dinah who finds her dermatology practice less exciting than she could have wished for; Justine, a tax assessor who would rather work with plants; and Charlotte, an estate lawyer who hopes to put her marriage back on track. All these women take the death of their friend and group member Ginger to heart and vow to avenge her.

They plot and plan and take risks, but accomplish their mission with daring, fortitude, cunning and guile. You can't help liking these women with their 'damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead attitude'.

The plot of What Goes Around is ingenious and carefully woven together, with just the right amount of action and suspense. It is easy to get to know these women and to develop a liking for each one. Their modus operandi differs with each caper, but accomplishes their ultimate goal. And the best part is that none of the offending men are aware they are being outed. It's a delightful book (these words written with a raised, clenched fist to the author).
