Incentivize was an exciting novel. Julia McCoy is sent to Ethiopia for the yearly audit of a subsidiary to Matrix Corporation, a multinational copper mining company. Something with the audit does not seem right and so she investigates further. Her investigation leads into danger and a race against time to stay alive. Incentivize is a thriller and one of the best novels I have read based in the Horn of Africa. The moment the story moves from Ethiopia into Somalia you can feel the tenseness increase. Tom Spears writes about what he knows well and he does know the Horn of Africa. While it has been years since I was last in Ethiopia, his writing brought me back quickly. Excellent work with a surprise ending. I look forward to his next book.

Engaging. Great book! A nice mix of corporate politics, intrigue, exotic location and suspense. You feel the suspense, emotions and events unfolding through the eyes of Julia McCoy…as if you are there. I am looking forward to more works like this from the author, Tom Spears

Tom Spears INCENTIVIZE hooks you right out of the gate, it is hard to put down. You feel like you are on this journey with all the characters and feeling and seeing what they are feeling and seeing. The twists and turns keep you guessing as he winds us though this very strange and interesting country and tale. His interactive decriptions and ability to make you bond with the characters is a testament to his writing capabilities. You will really enjoy this book!

Tom Spears has a knack for taking a corporate story and encompassing it into an intense and colorful adventure which becomes a rapid read. In fact, Incentivize remarkably mimics recent Navy Seal events into Africa. His writing style is crisp with vivid descriptions of the action and characters. If you like Dan Koontz or James Paterson, you will not be disappointed with Tom Spears & Incentivize.

Tom Spears’ “INCENTIVIZE” is an international corporate thriller that I found very difficult to put down. The story centers on the East African countries of Ethiopia and Somali. While most thrillers are exciting by their very nature, I also found this one to be an educational journey into the rare beauty that is offered up by Ethiopia. In addition, Tom’s use of the Navy Seals and the realistic mission in Mogadishu has inspired me to read other books regarding the Seal Teams. Once again Tom has written another page turner.

tom spears has written another thriller! what a great read- without spoiling too much of the story-i just wanted to say that the characters of copeland and dabir aman truly show how rotten people can be-you'll have to read to find out what i mean-enjoy the roller coaster from start to finish
