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.

Lately, I've been in bit of a reading slump where nothing could hold my interest. Even good writing—such as in Codex Born by Jim C. Hines—left me without any inclination to say a word and thus unable to review. But this book, it was like a holiday. It made me giggle, squee and restless in my seat....
Mind Fuck wasn’t a 5 star read for me, personally. I loved the world building. Who can resist a good dystopia? Not me. This particular dystopia, with its totalitarian regime (The Administration) and its corporate counterpart of the Confederation of European Corporations, is absolutely chilling in al...
These characters, this story, this world.... THIS SERIES!! Bam!! I am hooked.
Oddly enough, considering the theme, this is one of the funniest books I've read in a very long time. I couldn't really read it in public since I found it impossible to contain my evil laughter at more or less... anything said by Toreth or Sara. I like the contrast of totalitarian society and hilari...
