A God in Middle Management
A trip to the Big Apple with an open bar tab and a plush hotel room sounds like the perfect escape to midwestern office drone, Marty Foster. All he has to do is blow an interview for a job he doesn't want and then it's on to his expenses paid vacation.
Unfortunately the Fates have other plans for him.
Minutes into his meeting with prestigious money management firm UlysCo, things go sideways. A thwarted pick-pocketing, some corporate blackmail, and an awkward fight outside a shady bar put Marty on the run. He manages to slip away to a midnight hiding spot where he can drown his sorrows in expensive wine and make plans to catch the next flight home.
But then things get weird.
Marty wakes with a nasty hangover, a mysterious beard, and a brand new tooth. Determined to figure it out from home, he heads for the nearest airport, only to be hijacked by a menacing receptionist. She chauffeurs him back to UlysCo's offices where portfolio managers look for stock tips in bird entrails and Cupid dispenses troubling revelations from the back of an adult bookstore.
Someone really wants him to take that job, and the gods themselves will do anything to keep him in New York.
