A hotshot programmer gets kicked out of her job after she turns in a highly profitable piece of software. In revenge, she kidnaps her 'Big Boss' girlfriend (or so she thinks), to demand ransom. However, nothing is at it seems. Deceptions, betrayals, double-crosses in every chapter. Billed a romantic comedy, this lives up to it perfectly. And there is the requisite angst as well. Gill Mcknigt is one versatile author. In the hands of a lesser author, this would have disintegrated into farce. But she manages to keep things real enough that everything seems plausible rather than fantastical. This is by far my favorite book from her.
