Death on a High Floor: Crime novel set in upper management of a huge law firm

I just purchased a new book for my Kindle: Death On A High Floor. Here is the official description:

When the much-despised Marbury Marfan senior partner Simon Rafer turns up dead, with an ornate dagger buried between his shoulder blades, it comes as a surprise to no one. Simon was an abusive boss and had recently been on the warpath, clearing the “dead wood” from the legal firm he treated as his personal fiefdom. Nearly a thousand attorneys and associates, scattered across four continents, had good reason to want Rafer dead, but homicide Detective Spritz has his eye trained on Marbury Marfan partner Robert Tarza, in particular. Tarza and his friend and colleague—and maybe a bit more—Jenna are soon forced to play detective themselves, in a race to find the real killer or killers before Spritz finishes assembling a collection of evidence that will make a very credible case against Tarza.

World-class mediator, Victoria Pynchon, wrote about the book for Forbes last year. She attended a book reading by the author of the book and was struggling to explain the dynamics of BigLaw upper management:

Finally, I said, “it’s a cage match. They throw a piece of meat into the cage and the men – mostly it’s the men – fight to the death over it.”
