No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
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.
The sequel to Mind Fuck, this second book in the Administration series contains the novella Quid Pro Quo, as well as five short stories set in the near future dystopia of New London and centered around professional investigator and interrogator Val Toreth, and technical genius turned corporate Keir Warrick.

Manna Francis was born in Yorkshire, and has lived in the UK all her life. She studied biological sciences at the University of Oxford, where she met her future husband at a role-playing game. Since graduating, she has worked in universities and for the government, which in no way inspired any aspects of the Administration whatsoever. She now lives in the Midlands, with the same husband, two cats, and a taxidermied mohair goat in a glass case.
She would like to state for the record that she knows it's all true, because she made it up.
