Joseph Finder really knows how to create suspense. Just when you think the problem will be resolved, up pops another obstacle. I tagged it for topical conversation because the issue of wealthy, greedy corporate individuals/executives is current and believable. Yes, Mr. On-the-way-up, watch your back.

The intriguing plot provides food for thought in a world that seems fixated on security concerns and terroristic attacks. The idea of holding an entire corporate board hostage in a remote hunting lodge was for this reader unique. However, only some of the corporate financial security measures described and entertwined were interesting and surprising. The writer's style left me cold--mini-pschology pans regarding too many of the unneccessary characters resulted in a somewhat choppy read. In many respects one might arrive at the conclusion the book was written in numerous small pieces, then assembled by a computer. This was my first Finder book. The every-other-chapter throw back references to the main character's rough child and teen life, threatening to unleash a super monster killer hidden in the main character's psyche, did not work for me.

This is a fine effort by Finder. In fact, this may be in my top ten of 2007. What was more exciting than Jake Landry's past, more so even than the girl he was with, even more than the shocking murder that I never saw coming is that no character was safe in this thrill-a-minute mystery. Any one of them could have ended up dead at any moment, and some did. It really keeps you aware of each person's position, and their possible relationship with the kidnappers. Just going through this rewiew makes me want to read it again. A must read for lovers of action.

Power Play is a very well written book. I simply kept reading and reading. I finished this book in only a couple of hours. The plot was well written. This was my first Joseph Finder book. The book wa also action packed, and suspenseful. After this book i just have to read another Joseph Fimder book.

Executives having a corporate retreat in a Canadian hunting lodge - that's the begining of what looks like a corporate thriller. But then the executives are taken hostage by a group of armed men who appear to be redneck hunters looking for a big pay day. Nothing is as it seems. Some have called Joseph Finder the John Grisham of the corporate thriller.  I disagree. Joseph Finder is well-versed on the corporate world. His protagonist, Jake Landry, may start out looking like a suit but he becomes the kick-ass hero of the story. This was a fast paced, greatly entertaining story.

Liked his other books better. I found it slow and drawn out in places, so skimmed some of it.

This is my first Joseph Finder book and I will definitely either listen to or read another. However, one thing I did not like about it was the numerous characters. I found it confusing when the author would reference a character by his first name and then later reference him by his last name, you had to stop and think who he was and what position he held in the company or what action he played earlier in a chapter. I eventually went back and relistened to several chapters just to get a better sense. Other than that, the book kept my interest and I would recommend it.

I was delayed at an airport during a layover flight and I bought this book. I don't usually read thrillers, but the plot of Power Play perked my interest. I was intrigued with the story of a group of aerospace executives meeting in a Canadian hunting lodge for a bonding session and are held hostage by what appears to be some redneck hunters who stumbled across the opportunity to make some money. The book turned out to be a real page turner and I enjoyed it very much.

One thing is for sure. Only Joseph Finder can write a thriller like this. Power Play by Joseph Finder has all those qualities that characterizes his other books. I really enjoyed the background history on Jake Landry as Finder switches in between chapters through flashbacks from his past. As usual, Finder has really done a great research on the subject, I don't know how much of it, is fiction, but credible indeed. The plot is great, the twist and turns are well thought, and the ending doesn't disappoint.
