It's set to be a busy autumn in New London and beyond. With the ripples of the revolt still running through the European Administration, Val Toreth is slowly settling into the new flat he shares with Keir Warrick. But on orders from the very highest levels of the Administration, Toreth finds himself leaving his regular beat far behind and heading over the Atlantic to Washington D.C. Without his usual team or his authority as a Para-investigator to back him up, Toreth is caught up in a world of politics, diplomacy, and religion far outside his experience. Worst of all, he's stuck with an unexpected and very unwanted companion on his trip. Can he keep his cool and win through when international reputations are on the line?
Back in New London, Investigator Barret-Connor is called on to deal with a case that lies outside the traditional areas of interest of the Investigation and Interrogation Division--the unexpectedly dangerous world of Europe's music corporations. With dark secrets hidden behind the PR-groomed public façade, both his professional skills and conscience will be tested.
The eighth book in the Administration series contains the novellas Innocent Blood and For Your Entertainment, and continues the lives of now partially domesticated Para-investigator Val Toreth and somewhat harried corporate director Keir Warrick.

I know I'm being greedy, but I want it all.Innocent Blood: 4.5 Stars. This was Toreth at his best. Once again he's put into an impossible sit...
This is the first new Manna Francis book in nearly 5 years, being a big fan, I was hungry for this. And...hunger satisfied. The book is mostly made up of two I & I investigative novellas, so if you like that sort of thing, you're in luck. If you want purely T&W domestic shenanigans, you might be lef...
