Killer Instinct

"Finder is a natural storyteller…"


Jason Steadman is a thirty-year-old sales executive living in Boston working for a huge electronics giant, a competitor to Sony and Panasonic. He's a witty, charismatic guy who's well liked, but lacks the "killer instinct" necessary to move quickly up the corporate ladder. To the chagrin of his ambitious wife, it looks as if his career has hit a ceiling. Jason has been sidelined.

All that changes one evening when Jason meets Kurt Semko, a former Special Forces officer just back from Iraq. Looking for a decent pitcher for the company softball team, Jason gets Kurt - who was once drafted by the majors - a job in Corporate Security. Soon, good things start to happen for Jason - and very bad things start to happen to Jason's rivals. His career suddenly takes off. He's an overnight success.

Jason discovers too late that his friend Kurt has been paving his path to the top by the most efficient means available. After all, Kurt says, "Business is war, right?"

When Jason tries to put a stop to it, he finds that his new best friend has become the most dangerous enemy imaginable, and far more than his career hangs in the balance.

Although he's been around a while, I'd never read anything by this author before. Reading a book by a new author is always exciting. In this case, I was right to be excited. The story started at a rifle-fast pace and continued in this vein, right through to the very end. Finder is a natural storyteller who can keep the reader spellbound with gritty storylines and characters that truly come alive. Not only will I be reading all the new books by Joseph Finder, I will also be making sure I read all his previous books at the soonest opportunity.
