Despite the notion of female solidarity, almost every office has its feud—usually between two women. In The Feud, a work friendship goes bad. Very bad. During the mid-nineties, the Internet was new and cell phones were rare. Nikki and Roberta employ these emerging technologies as they engage in a war of betrayals that threatens one with the loss of her boyfriend and reputation and the other with the loss of her home and family. Roberta drinks wine, Nikki smokes weed; they each have their little helpers—but can anything really help them achieve peace?


“Picture a mid-’90s, suburban New York office full of saleswomen, each successful, attractive, and competitive in her own way. Add boyfriends and sex, booze and drugs…and a spat between two of the women that soon becomes a knock-down, drag-out war. Welcome to Catherine Hiller’s latest, a light, lively romp of a read that will have you turning pages faster than you can say flip phone or World Wide Web.”

Cathi Hanauer, New York Times bestselling author of Gone and The Bitch is Back


“Roberta and Nikki begin as office friends, but the relationship soon curdles, turning the two into rivals and finally bitter enemies. Shrewd-eyed, sharp and stylish, The Feud exposes the dark secrets of women in the workplace with assurance, intelligence and wit.”

Yona Zeldis McDonough, author of The House on Primrose Pond and fiction editor, Lilith


“Catherine Hiller weaves a story of intrigue and revenge and shows us how women can cause each other piercing pain when they attack from behind. The Feud delivers emotional intensity and a realistic portrayal of the darkest side of female relationships.”
