Hedging marks the long-awaited return of Wall Street headhunter/sleuth Leslie Wetzon, her business partner Xenia Smith, and NYPD Detective Silvestri.

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.

Other organization memberships include: Mystery Writers of America, the Authors Guild, and Private Eye Writers of America. She lives in New York City.
From Publishers Weekly:
At the start of Meyers's well-plotted eighth mystery to feature Wall Street headhunters Leslie Wetzon and Xenia Smith (after 1997's The Groaning Board), Wetzon has lost her memory and is desperately trying to escape the aftermath of the explosion of an executive jet at New Jersey's Teterboro Airport belonging to a hedge fund manager. Meyers handles the clichéd amnesia situation expertly, and Wetzon learns as much about herself from her reactions to people and situations as she does from her gradual and episodic recovery. Uncertain of her own identity and unsure of whom she can trust, Wetzon knows that two men are trying to kill her and that the FBI, a wealthy financier and a high-powered attorney she was romantically involved with are all connected somehow. The odd-couple pairing of the extravagant, exuberant Smith and the bold, hardheaded Wetzon still plays well. Wetzon's memory loss and brief disappearance underscore the genuine affection between the two friends. Despite the eight years since their last outing, Smith and Wetzon remain a formidable team.
