Summary
In the anonymous office park of a modern software company, whip-smart software engineer Henry Hurt is a man in the middle: of life, of career, and of self-assessment. Mired in his corporate responsibilities, Henry's deathless office existence is torpedoed by losing his mother. Overcome by 'the pall', Henry seeks escape in a quest for love and purpose occasioned by a crisis in his company's fortunes. Dodging an Iago-like rival, he finds love with a colleague in his department, endangers his bond with his family, and finally confronts the single urgent question of his life
Summary
A middle aged employee at a software company is haunted by the death of his mother and seeks solace in the arms of a colleague, complicating life with his corporate rival, his family and his existing lover
