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.

This is my rating for this particular story, not the whole book, as I'm reading the e-versions. This was my second favorite Administration story. My favorite is Without The Game the story right before this one where Toreth is really freaked out about Warrick and can't even admit it to himself. In th...
"He wasn't helpless, he couldn't be"Toreth always makes me think of a highly specialized predator, like those species which ultra-specialized to survive and stay on top of the food chain.
Control was very, very good. I love how Toreth's mind works, and I liked that he lost his control for once - he's just human, eh. I liked how Warrick helped him more than once.The final statement of Wait for it: "Because that was as long as I could stand it" was simply perfect.Caged - I love Toreth ...
