About the Book

A young naïve woman desiring the elusive 6 digit salary would grab at the good fortune of starting a career in banking. However that corporate glitter and professional glamour comes with a hefty price as three bankeresses find themselves in a maze of mental bondage, limitless deceit, and extreme personal sacrifices. Pamela is a hardened ambitious bankeress haunted by nightmares of a secret and shameful past. Her devious scheming puts her far ahead of her other colleagues and gets her the promotion that might ultimately push her over the edge of normalcy. Rachael is the weak minded ambitious bankeress. Like the proverbial sheep that devours the faeces of the dog it follows around. She is desperate to succeed Pamela. On the verge of a nervous breakdown, an additional burden of guilt could finally cause her mind to collapse. After losing out to Pamela, Enitan is the bankeress that desires to replace her fevered ambition with a change in her personal life. She however has to face a different kind of crisis, being trailed by the diabolical rituals of her mother after the adoption of a baby boy from an unscrupulous doctor. Beneath a façade of Nigerian corporate sophistication is a disturbing and desperate story of The Steel Bankeress.
