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.

    "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.

    "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
    "A Sharp Taunt Thriller !"

    I love a sharp dose of authenticity - when a story is told arrow-straight and fiction feels like reality, when you may have never been to a certain place or met someone like the character you're reading, and yet you feel the narrative's truth. Leslie Wolfe definitely has a gift for this...in spades. In Executive the writing is tensile-taut, the story lines are interwoven seamlessly, and all the gory details are nicely intact.


    An intricate plot and fleshy, memorable characters, the expressive narrative and relentless pacing will no doubt cause Executive to be remembered as indeed one of the best action and suspense story.

    Story
    "Inconsistent"

    Inconsistent characters, wrong choice in narrator but overall good storyline. The authors' interpretation of how Alex acted was completely wrong with the credentials she held. With an IQ of 164 Alex acts like a school child without knowledge in the simplest of things. She wouldn't be asking Tom IT questions if she was an IT expert. Finally the narrarator' voice for Alex was condescending and utterly wrong for her character.

    "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.

    "Executive"

    This book went into to much detail to be exciting. The boring explanations caused the reader to become disinterested. The premise of the book was good, it just needed to be laid out better.

    Story
    "Wolf has a nice start to a promising career"

    Executive had an interesting premise--bad guys doing bad things for money. Heroine was engaging. However, Wolf dumbed her down a little too much for the intelligent techie she was portrayed as. Only other caution was the repeating of info readers already knew. An example is the repetitive news stories.
    Nice job overall. Recommend Wolf takes the online writers curriculum at Stanford Writers School. --Chris
