Publisher's Summary

Tina is a good person. Tina has done something bad. But she did the wrong thing for the right reasons, and that makes it a bit less bad - doesn't it?
For six years Tina has served drinks and collected dry-cleaning for a boss who spends more on lunch than Tina does on rent, and her debts are piling up. Then a blip in the expenses system offers her the opportunity to change her life: a big fat cheque that shouldn't have Tina's name on it. And her moral compass temporarily malfunctions.
With wealth comes trouble. It doesn't take long for one of Tina's fellow assistants to notice, and she wants in. But despite their unlimited expense accounts, with two of them playing the system, there is always going to be a limit to their luck.
