From the Horse’s Mouth #1 Taster Blurb
Imagine another person controlling everything you do. Imagine wasting away in a job you hate with no chance of promotion. Imagine feeling like no one in the world respects you. Now imagine you could change all that in an instant, but it meant risk. Would you have the guts to do it?
Gottfried Baumauer, Ridley Obelmäker and Dimitri Pissec are three men in exactly that position – stuck in a dead-end job they secretly loathe, but need. When sexy new recruit, Caitlyn Brichacek, arrives their working world is tipped slowly upside-down. Bravery, lies and decency are the first threads that begin to unravel. After that, it’s anyone’s game.

Author Carla H. Krueger hits another high note with this beautifully dark tale, inviting the reader to put themselves in unexpected shoes and to question more deeply the difference between wrong and right – a difference that might be far more subtle than many of us are willing to believe.
