Ride a Cockhorse
A revolution is under way at a once sleepy New England bank. 45-year-old Frances Fitzgibbons has gone from sweet-tempered loan officer to insatiable force of nature almost overnight. Suddenly she’s brazenly seducing a high-schooler, taking over her boss’s office, firing anyone who crosses her, inspiring populist fervour, and publicly announcing plans to crush her local rivals en route to dominating the state’s entire banking industry. The terrifying new order instituted by Frankie and her offbeat goon squad (led by her devoted hairdresser and including her own son-in-law) is an awesome spectacle to behold.
