    A Modern Day Noir

    With non-stop action and multi-dimensional characters, this novel is captivating, cover to cover. One of my favorites!

    action packed espionage thriller

    In Philadelphia CEO David Murphy gathers his seven underlings to a weekend business meeting at the 36th floor office. Once they gather together, David informs the septet that he has shut down the firm and more important to them he must kill them. --- There is no escape as David has locked vacuum sealed tight all exits with some containing saran gas if opened and others just shut. All seven are stunned, but the least of them, Molly ¿mousy¿ Lewis pulls out a gun and shoots Murphy in the head. --- Across the ocean in Scotland, two operatives keep in touch with their agent inside the finance firm Ania Kuczun. What the other six fail to realize as Ania begins her assignment is that she is Molly and the company they worked for was a top secret covert operations, but lost their usefulness so each employee must be eliminated. --- This modern day, action packed espionage thriller salutes Agatha Christie¿s AND THEN THERE WERE NONE as the employees learn that their SEVERANCE PACKAGE is death. The story line is fast-paced from the moment that David informs his subordinate there is no escape as they must die and never slows down until the final death spin. --- Harriet Klausner

    Quentin Tarantino's 'The Office'

    Truly outstanding thriller, with some of the best written action in recent memory. The formula is easy: Take 'The Office', or any of the similar work place drama/comedy productions that have of late become so popular, and imagine them re-worked by Quentin Tarantino. So that, you know, Jim and Pam might be trying to kill each other as much as get the other in bed. The office dynamic is very authentic, while the violence and action are generally realistic, but highly stylized in a fashion similar to Kill Bill. The characters' personalities are very well fleshed out over a very quick paced, quick read novel- I couldn't put it down. If there was a four-and-a-half star option I may have ranked it there, as I felt there were a few questions unanswered. After reading the synopsis for his earlier novel 'The Blonde', I suspect I'll find some if not all of those answers there, even though the books aren't so much sequels or featuring the same characters. They simply seem connected by a very interesting plot thread I look forward to seeing more of. The light political commentary isn't bad either, nor heavy handed.
