"Is it too early to declare Finder's fifth novel the most entertaining thriller of 2004?....A first-rate surprise ending packs a wallop. This novel is the real deal: a thriller that actually will keep readers up way past their bedtimes." (Publishers Weekly)
"A twisting, stealthily plotted story...as a savvy genre piece with built-in momentum, it works just fine...the book weaves a tangled and ingeniously enveloping web." (The New York Times)
"What keeps the pages turning isn't the suspense, though, as much as it is Finder's detailed portrayal of the Machiavellian world of the mega-corporation and its high-stakes intrigue." (The New York Times Book Review)
"This thriller is engaging from the opening lines and doesn't let up until the surprising end. Scott Brick narrates flawlessly....This great performance is a perfect fit for the writing." (AudioFile)
I really enjoyed this book, despite its habit of repeating itsself on occasion. It kept me happily listening every day in the car as I slogged my way to work and back for about a week. I'll certainly keep my eye out for anything else he has written.
Great fun! An excellent corporate thriller. Well worth the listen kept me captivated during many start and stop trips. It's no surprise the authors other books include, the popular film High Crimes. I just wish audible had more by Joseph Finder. "Read" this you won't regret it!
I absolutely loved this "Dilbert Meets Corporate Espionage" story! It is so relevant of today's corporate climate of silly HR practices and top management greed.
Great reader for a suspenseful novel. Interesting characters with a likable first person story teller. Finder is an astute business writer who captures the greed and political subtleties of corporate survival.
Tired of the same old formula thrillers? This one is well above the pack with a really well constructed multi layered plot. Even the traditional "surprize ending" rocks! Being set in the world of high powered corporate espionage adds to the fun, and the psychological approach to characterization makes you think, and helps make this book a way above average read. Well worth the time!
While this is not the greatest of all time book, it remains a perfect audible book: Perfect narration (good tone and pace), suspensful story (pretty obvious but still ... You want to know the end !), good characters ... The style is very simple yet effective.
A good book !
One of the very best. I would have given it 5 stars except for the ending. The ending gets zero stars..............It felt like I was dropped off a cliff......
I sat in my car in the driveway for almost 2 hours, because I couldn't wait until the next day to finish the book. The end left me wanting more......
very american, techy book. Good fun, plenty of suspense. Quite original. I like the way it is written in the first person. He tells it with hindsight, and he knows what the outcome is before the story starts, although we have to wait till the end.
