When he manipulates the system to do something nice for a friend, he finds himself charged with a crime.

He's dating the girl of his dreams. His life is perfect. All he has to do to keep it that way is betray everyone he cares about and everything he believes in.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 2/11/2014

    " This is a MUST READ for anyone who has ever worked for a corporation. It is billed as a suspense thriller about corporate espionage, but it really is also very funny! Very well written, very fast-paced....and very much like a mirror for those of us in the corporate world! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky | 2/9/2014

    " Four stars for the story and Finder's ability to tell it. One star for the f*** loaded dialoge. Averaged: 2.5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Celeste | 2/7/2014

    " I really really liked this book. The author did a great job of researching some of the shady practices that go on inside of corporate america. Very interesting, fast paced read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sherri Vigil | 2/3/2014

    " I'd be pretty amazed if this plot ever would happen in real life. I realize it is fiction but this was ridiculus from the beginning. Main character, Adam, is 26 yrs old? Really????Need I say more.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chele | 1/28/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bigsna | 1/20/2014

    " fast paced but light. the writing is very simple and makes this an easy read. though its a typical corporate world thriller and kind of predictable, it still manages to keep me involved enough to keep turning those pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 1/8/2014

    " A suspenseful novel of two research companies trying to find out what each other have up their sleeves "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 11/1/2013

    " A free Kindle book about corporate espionage. Humorous, suspenseful, a trying father-son relationship, a so-so ending. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Atarah Poling | 10/16/2013

    " I found this book to be completely uninteresting and it bored me. I should note though that I usually do not read books like this. My brother had left it with me and I figured I'd give it a read. Did not enjoy it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 10/9/2013

    " I had fun with this book. I read it using daily lit, so one piece was delivered via my rss reader each day. It was a fun way to squeeze in an extra book in just a few minutes a day, and I enjoyed the story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MJ | 5/23/2013

    " So I finally finished this book last night. I really liked it. When I read espionage books they are always the traditional foreign country spy books. This is the first corporate espionage book but it will not be the last. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 4/28/2013

    " Great quick read, corporate espionage with a little twist at the end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dennis | 10/15/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scoozer | 8/14/2012

    " This book hooked me from the start just with the writing and descriptions. The author had me laughing out loud at times just by the way he phrased things. When the action began and it didn't let up. I will definitely read more Joseph Finder. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elle M. | 5/17/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louis | 12/1/2011

    " This is fantastic. Fresh dialogue. Funny. The surprise at the end was brilliantly smooth. Though the ending felt a little abrupt. This is also an industry espionage story. Let's treat it as one. Strategies and suspense take center stage, not "character development". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha | 10/12/2011

    " I asked some friends, who said the ending could really happen. So that made it great. "

    " A prank lands an average joe in the midst of a corporate battle, very interesting read. I had to finish this in one sitting, the plot throws numerous twists and keeps the suspense till the very end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Epic.rdr | 5/13/2011

    " This was a great thriller for the office cubicle set. We tech empoyees have all experienced our share of paranoia, this played me like the latest beta copy software!
