Kill Your Boss The Intern's Handbook by Shane Kuhn
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

John Lago is a contract killer. He works for Human Resources Inc, an organisation that puts young people into companies as unpaid interns so that they can murder people. The book takes the form of a manual of advice from John to the young people who will follow him, mixed up with his own life story. It is very graphically violent. We learn many ways to kill, most of them mindless, through to the final twist! There is a very Tarantino feel to this, a compulsive page-turner, not for the squeamish.

If you like Shane Kuhn you might also like to read books by James Frey, Bret Easton Ellis and Chuck Palahniuk.

Synopsis

Kill Your Boss The Intern's Handbook by Shane Kuhn

If you're reading this, you're a new employee at Human Resources, Inc. Congratulations. And condolences. At the very least, you're embarking on a career that you will never be able to describe as dull. You'll go to interesting places. You'll meet unique and stimulating people from all walks of life. And kill them. You will make a lot of money, but that will mean nothing to you after the first job. Assassination, no matter how easy it looks in the movies, is the most difficult, stressful, and lonely profession on the planet. Even when you're disguised as an intern.

Reviews

Believable dialogue, a whip smart and cynical central character, clever reversals and an entertaining amount of bone-crunching violence help wrap up this nasty package with a pretty little bow. An entertaining, ferociously violent romp about a morally bankrupt killer trying to find his way home. - Kirkus

Black humor and surprise twists distinguish Kuhn's highly entertaining debut, which puts a fresh spin on the theme of the hardened criminal planning one last job - Publishers Weekly
