Power Writes Its Own Rules
Gaining it, keeping it, or losing it, control is more than just a game--it's a critical tool for survival. No more so than in the Administration, where the Investigation and Interrogation Division's Val Toreth faces professional and personal hazards every day. And when an attack on one of the most loyal and valued members of his investigative team makes the professional very personal indeed, Toreth finds himself entangled once more in the darker side of corporate life and crime. He'll need help, not just from his colleagues but from his "regular fuck" Keir Warrick, to make it out the other end safely.
Even away from their offices, Toreth and Warrick find that their jobs create challenges and tensions that threaten their relationship, because finding a balance is all about knowing when to keep control and when to let it go.
The fourth book in the Administration series contains the novellas Control and Coming from America and six other short stories, continuing the lives, loves, and occasionally intricate problems of dedicated and opportunistic para-investigator Val Toreth and up-and-coming corporate Keir Warrick in the near-future dystopia of the European Administration.

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.
