DEATH LOVES A MESSY DESK by Mary Jane Maffini (Berkley)

Professional organizer Charlotte Adams keeps to a meticulously well-planned schedule, but occasionally even she encounters challenging days. When a new customer asks her to help with an employee's messy desk, Charlotte foresees no problem; but, when she's run off the road on the way to the job site and the sloppy employee is missing, she soon realizes she may have bitten off more than she can chew. Normally, Charlotte's friends provide support to one another when they're having one of those days, but one is hugely pregnant, one cuts her phone calls short, another has three kids, and still another is mysteriously tied up with a volunteer project.

Maffini defines her characters beautifully—I never once had trouble identifying any of them—and her pacing is superb. Messy Desk is a quick, fun read. Enjoy.

Can anyone recommend the top Script Deployment tool for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use or How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central event management
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!
