"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)
Man, one little party on company expense and look what happens. I loved the plot of this book. Who knows what? Who is working for whom? What is going to happen next?
A great thriller of corporate espionage. It will have you on the edge of your seat (hard to do while driving) and wanting more.
This is one of the best reads (listens) that I have had in quite some time. The story is tightly written that will keep you guessing up to the very end. I highly recommend this book.
This booking was gripping from the very beginning. I couldn`t put it down, every spare second I had each day was spent reading this book. The BEST book I have EVER read bar none!!
I'd never heard of Joseph Finder, I'd never even seen any of his movies. But I'm glad other people generously reviewed this book, because its given me another author to enjoy this summer. This book has a great plot and the characters are very well fleshed out. There are a few too many current references that will make this book seem dated in a few years - so read it now when you won't have to laugh at yourself. Also, unlike many audio books, this title is very well read, e.g. it neither puts you to sleep nor irritates the listener. If you want something to keep you up on a road trip or wish that your communte was just a little bit longer, grab this book - its top notch.
The book is exciting and well written with a perfect blend of the reader's voice and the main character's personality. If you tend to "geek" about techonology, you'll clap your hands with glee while listening to all kinds of contemporary buzz words. Some books should be like movies - entertaining and escapist. This one certainly fills that bill.
I enjoyed this book immensely! While I could guess at some of the plot twists, the ending took me by surprise. This is my first Finder book; I can see listening to more!
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.
