Great first novel by business executive and author Gary McGugan. This novel was about the struggles between high level corporate executes and the competition they face every day at with their jobs. The story was unlike any I have ever read before and this I liked. I was fortunate to meet the author at a book signing and found him to be a very interesting person. He's a former business executive and current business consultant and the story he tells about the international corporate world demonstrates his first hand knowledge. His book is fast paced, exciting and every time I picked it up I was always looking forward to what was coming next. I would liked to have seen more character development and dialogue but this did not stop me from enjoying this read.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As you get deeper into the story, and deeper into the characters, you really want to keep going to see what comes next! As the story goes on it gets better and better. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next from this new author, will certain characters be back and will certain plotlines continue, can't wait for more!
