Publisher's Summary

See video book trailer here: http://bit.ly/ExecutiveVideo

A friendly fire incident in Afghanistan takes a serious toll. A drone, out of control, brings death and wreaks havoc on a Florida highway. An apparently successful corporation comes under scrutiny.

A memorable incursion behind corporate closed doors, led by an up-and-coming private investigator, a modern detective on a mission to find the truth about the lives lost to the very technology that was mandated to protect them.

Our skies aren't safe anymore.

A thought-provoking page turner, Executive sizzles with plausible scenarios, conveyed in technical and business terminology at an unrelenting pace.

Exploring the controversial territory of toxic leadership and its long term consequences, Executive delivers an insightful analysis spiced with cutting-edge technology and science, in an exciting, suspenseful, masterful technothriller.

Fans of Jack Ryan, Jason Bourne, James Bond, and Jack Reacher will love Alex Hoffmann.

    "Executive:A Thriller,"

    I loved this book. The storyline kept me completely engrossed. An edge of your seat mystery. The narrator was a perfect fit for this story. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a corporate government thriller.

    Story
    "Intriguing"
    Where does Executive: A Thriller rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Scale of one to ten, probably 8. It pretty good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alex. She was smart and she was intriguing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she was trying to figure out what to wear to dinner first time she was going to the boss's place.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Only when Walker was having a fit of sorts at Alex's, first corporate meeting. Wanted to throw something at him.

    Story
    "Scary Executives"

    This is the first book I've read by Leslie Wolfe. I started out with the audio book because I have such a long drive but was so into the story that I just had to by the ebooks version to read while I wasn't driving. omg, this book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. it's very scary to think of stuff like this happening. the characters are so very well developed, I feel like I know them. some are really scary. the narrator was good. There were just a few times it sounded kind of like a computer voice but not much. I know one thing, I will for sure be buying all this author's books or audiobooks.

    Story
    "I liked the idea behind the story"

    I really wanted to like this book more. I liked the idea behind the story, I liked the main character, all the characters actually but there were just so many times that the language just didn't seem to fit.
    It seemed too stiff somehow with too many extra words or too many old fashioned words.
    The book is set pretty much in today's world but I felt like the characters from from 50 years ago sometimes the way they spoke.
    This was quite distracting and took away from the story quite a bit for me.
    The story is one of intrigue but I just had a hard time wading through it and really struggled to finish. I only finished it as it was a gift copy in return for my honest review.
    I don't think it was the narrator, I found him to be very efficient and his character voices were just fine, it was the language and the words in the writing.
    I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review honestly.
