Penelope is the Boss from Hell. Everybody knows one and too many have to work for one. Toiling in the accounting department of Blue Steel, one worker has amused himself by researching the various ways in which he could kill his boss. But on the day that layoff notices are being handed out, will he act on his fantasies or walk away? A dark satire of life in the workforce for only 99 cents.
“I’ve just read Nasty Evil Bitch of a Boss and feel that you’ve written my story. It feels like Grant knows my ex-principal personally. It was a very amusing read and I would highly recommend it – it had me smiling, empathising, cringing, laughing … and wishing.” – Janice Warren
