To the Precipice

About The Book

From the New York Times bestselling author of Looking for Mr. Goodbar comes an enthralling tale of money, love, and one woman’s quest to have both in a world that wants her to have neither.

Young, beautiful Ruth Kossoff is drawn dangerously by two equal desires—the love of her best friend David Landau, and wealth enough to take her from her family’s tenement home. When she sacrifices one to marry the wealthy Walter Stamm, she finds herself still greedy for life and love and willing to risk everything she has worked towards for a chance to be with David again.
