Melanie Kohl is like a hamster on a treadmill, running in place and getting nowhere, starting with her mind-numbing commute to work, her job as employee relations manager/Ms. Fix-It at a comically out-of-control medical center in New York City, and ending each day when she crawls into her basement apartment, bemoaning her sexless, uneventful private life, rocked by disturbing dreams of mayhem and murder. As she heads inexorably towards a breakdown, hastened by the murder of her much hated boss and the appointment of an even more sinister and stupid replacement, she finally flies off the wheel and catapults into the arms of a handsome stranger. Will love conquer all? Well . . . Janet Garber utilizes her keen sense of the Hr world to create a funny glimpse into what might happen in a company run amok. Her writing style is a joy. Tony Lee – Vp Editorial at Society for Human Resource Management (Shrm).
