We’re pleased to announce the release of Manna Francis’ new novel Quid Pro Quo, the second book in the Administration series, which continues the story arc surrounding the near future dystopia of New London, professional investigator and interrogator Val Toreth, and technical genius turned corporate Keir Warrick, and which will start shipping on Tuesday, May 27th.
When he agrees to do a favor for his old friend Liz Carey in Corporate Fraud, Para-investigator Val Toreth is hoping for a simple case. After all, kidnapping and dismemberment are all in a day’s work for the Investigation and Interrogation Division. But in the European Administration, simplicity is often a dangerous illusion, and anyone who goes looking for trouble in the corporate world is certain to find more than they bargained for. Fraud, sabotage, espionage, blackmail, decades-long vendettas, and murder–the more powerful the corporations, the darker their secrets. Corporate insiders and innocent bystanders alike are all too easily caught up in the conflicts, but when suspects can hide behind money and power, what chance is there of any justice?
And on top of everything else, Toreth also has to deal with Keir Warrick. But that’s easy. That’s just sex.
