This is terrific. A weekend of â€˜bondingâ in a company retreat for all the powerful, rich and influential directors of Hammond Aerospace Co. turns into a nightmare of kidnapping and high ransoms. Our hero is a junior executive who shouldnât really have been there and his ability to help riles those above him. Company politics, power and internet transactions make for a tense, modern thriller.
Comparison: John Grisham, David Baldacci, Vince Flynn.
Jake Landry, a junior executive at the Hammond Aerospace Corporation, is a steady, modest man with a dark past.
When a group of local hunters crash his annual company retreat, the board of the billion-dollar company and Jake are cut off from the rest of the world, trapped by men who have guns and a cunning plan to steal a vast fortune.
But the hostage-takers aren't who they appear to be, and neither is Jake Landry. The only question is: who is going to win the power play?
