Synopsis: Smith and Wetzon are back! Hedging marks the long-awaited return of Wall Street headhunter/sleuth Leslie Wetzon, her business partner Xenia Smith, and NYPD Detective Silvestri. An executive jet explodes on the runway of Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. There are bodies to be identified. Soon after, a New York City hospital admits a new patient, cut, burned and bruised, suffering from hypothermia. She was found wandering in Central Park. Her dress is stained with blood. The blood is not hers. She remembers nothing before she woke in the hospital. She’s a Jane Doe, or as she calls herself, Temporary Jane (T.J.). Then her photo appears in the newspapers as Mary Lou Salinger, a possible survivor of the explosion, but Xenia Smith recognizes her as Leslie Wetzon! As Leslie’s memory slowly returns, she is faced with more questions. Why is someone trying to kill her? Why are she and Mary Lou Salinger dead look-alikes? Who is Jason McLaughlin? And how is she going to deal with the impossible Xenia Smith? When the bodies from the explosion are identified, Wetzon must stop hedging and make some life altering decisions. Hedging is a witty puzzle involving murder, high finance and low ethics, blended with danger and romance.
