"This fun romp covers it all-car chases, shootings, eccentric-uncles-turned-amateur-playwrights and end-of-the-world computer viruses."
Charley Fairfax-heiress, theatrical producer, newlywed-has every intention of living happily ever after with her tall, dark, and sarcastic husband Jack. But when Jack is hired to investigate a suspicious death at a San Francisco software company, it quickly becomes clear that high-tech has some low-life elements. The only way Charley knows how to help Jack involves doing something nobody thought she would ever do: Charley needs to get a job.
The problem: Charley and her band of irregulars learned everything they know about the workplace from a production of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. But Charley isn't worried. Faking it has always been her strong suit. If only people would stop talking to her and Jack about babies, introducing them to decorators, and trying to kill them, they might even get to take a honeymoon.
