You need look no further than the dedication (don't miss it) to realize that here's a writer who intends to entertain. And entertain Colgan's fourth novel certainly does - in style. At the age of 32, Arthur Pendleton has reached a crisis. All he sees stretching ahead of him is 'more of the same, with less hair'. His five-year relationship with Fay has grown worse than stale and his town-planning job has never been remotely exciting. When the office is assessed for downsizing, Arthur finally flips and, for once in his life, behaves outrageously. Expecting instant redundancy, he finds himself ensconced with the company therapist and offered promotion instead. The first task is to fire his Tosspot Boss. Then things become really interesting. He must motivate an unlikely team to promote Coventry's bid to become European City of Culture. His co-workers include a financial whiz from accounts, cool yet alluring consultant Gwyneth and the dashing Rafe, not to mention a junk-food addict and his irritating 'God-knows-what' of a dog, Sandwiches. Gwyneth can't decide who is really the man for her and Lynne, the company therapist, has hidden attributes for Arthur to discover. Meanwhile, the ex-boss and ex-girlfriend have joined forces against him and are backing Slough for top honours. A battle of words, wills and winning ideas ensues, culminating in an outward-bound team contest where tactics become increasingly dirty. A mixture of side-splitting humour, tongue-in-cheek romance and fantasy with a brilliant twist, this is the perfect antidote to a bad day at the office. (Kirkus UK) --kirkus uk
