Alice Harte only wants out of a bad job, and the chance to get away - preferably to England. Her employer is a sociopath who has no intention of releasing her from her employment contract. He has his evil cohorts and a lineup of judges, lawyers, crazy women and thugs arrayed against her, and that's not the best part.
The best part is that every time the book feels as if it's fallen down a rabbit hole and gone silly...it's only dropping down a roller-coaster hill to rush back up the other side.
The Alice in Wonderland references are woven in cleverly, bringing smiles when a heavier hand might have made them jarring. In short, this is a whimsical, funny, sometimes tense novel with a fast pace and a satisfying conclusion. Highly recommended...

I have to say, Alice's 'Tweedle' with a 'bull-neck' was a juxtaposition which made me bite into my lip not to laugh; for I know the author probably didn't intend to amuse here. The combination of these two images, however, does succeed in depicting Alice's assailants as pretty mindless stooges whose right to occupy a space on this planet is justified only by their skill in manhandling people into cars/ limo's.
Alice's 'Walrus Moustache' man, made me almost draw blood out of my lower lip when I thought of the beefy thug he would be but, endearing though Alice's nicknames are, she can get positively feisty as she slaps away the 'fat finger' which Walrus Moustache 'poked... in my face.'
The first person works well, generating a conversational style with the reader and making Alice both likeable and accessible.
Some of the description is gorgeous, within the context of a thriller, 'Leslie was dead meat and I might be the side dish,' followed by, 'My stomach was like a washer on a spin cycle.' This is a refreshing departure from so many hard nosed and slick thrillers.
I thoroughly enjoyed this light-hearted read (after having just finished reading a truly scary ghost story).
For one who has ever found themselves living with their feet planted firmly on the ground, but their head filled with fictional images from some of their fictional favorites this book is sure to entertain.
