Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Colin Hollinghead is a young man going nowhere fast. Working for his dad might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but starting at the bottom in the widget-making industry has, predictably, lost its appeal. And now the business is in trouble. At least his father has a plan to turn things around—a new work force that will improve profit margins and secure the companys future for all eternity. The deal looks great on paper, but they do say that the devil is in the details—and the arch fiend definitely seems to be involved in some capacity. Colin needs help, and perhaps his new friend from J.W. Wells & Co. can help. Sparkling with wit and oozing charm, Tom Holts comic caper proves once and for all that going to work can actually be hell.

Synopsis:

Colin Hollinghead is a young man going nowhere fast. Working for his dad might have seemed like a good idea at the time, but starting at the bottom in the widget-making industry has somehow lost its appeal. And now, the business is in trouble.
