In "Uptown and Down" (NAL paperback, $13.95), Jennifer Anglade Dahlberg's fiction debut, a fast-track couple experiences the downside of living the high life in New York.

Nora Deschamps is an editor at a chic women's fashion magazine. Her husband, Jeff Montgomery, owns an independent record label that's becoming a megabucks hip-hop phenomenon. Tracked as one of New York magazine's "25 Most Exciting Couples Under 40," Nora and Jeff appear to have it all.

But their future is about to be shaken — by Nora's on-the-rise career that's taking an intimate toll on their lives, by a crime that Jeff is powerless to prevent and ultimately, by the secret of a long-ago indiscretion that now threatens all they've strived to achieve.

From the uptown high life to the downside of love, betrayal and long-standing lies, Nora and Jeff must now fight harder than ever to learn the meaning of trust.
