Orla's Code


Orla's Code is Awesome Indie Approved and nominated for Big Al's Books and Pals Readers Choice Award, 2014!

"If you want to get ahead, get noticed," is Orla Hanlon's motto. New to London and the first female programmer in CouperDaye, a global investment bank, she takes on a high-profile but controversial project.

With her new luxury apartment and a work-romance quietly on the side, Orla thinks she has everything under control.

Until a bug in her code causes chaos on the trading floor and Orla finds herself a scapegoat in a corporate game, fighting to save her new life in London.
