Working with Really Stupid People TM      

A CPA emptied her bank accounts and her ex-husband sits in jail, charged in a multi-million dollar scam, but Jill Fountaine is determined to make things right. With her life savings drained to zero, Jill is forced to take a job at Deep Pockets Bank and Trust. But she discovers this employer hasn’t painted an accurate picture of her new workplace. The bank is embroiled in a huge scam and her ex-husband, the love of her life, is right in the middle of the trouble.

Jill teams with a motley crew of offbeat friends and co-workers to solve the case. Her oddball neighbors moonlight as bumbling private investigators. Janitors clean floors while eavesdropping on corner-office conversations. An IT expert dresses in feline costumes and catnaps in coffins as she commands the bank’s massive computer infrastructure. With their help, Jill uncovers a conspiracy, loaded with her own stolen money and reaching the bank’s top executives.

In Working with Really Stupid People: The Executives, Jill finds herself in one silly adventure after another as she attempts to clear her ex-husband, while dodging the antics of a desperate group of crooks. She realizes nothing will stop them from pilfering millions of dollars, including permanently erasing her from the picture.

This is the third in the Jill Fountaine series:
Working with Really Stupid People: The Neighbors
Working with Really Stupid People: The Relatives
