Power Play by Joseph Finder ePub
It was the perfect retreat for a troubled company. No cell phones. No BlackBerrys. No cars. Just a deluxe lodge surrounded by thousands of miles of wilderness and a desolate seacoast.
Jake Landry is a junior executive at the Hammond Aerospace Corporation, a steady, modest, and taciturn guy with a gift for keeping his head down-and a turbulent past he prays he’s put behind him. Ordered to fill in for his boss at the annual offsite, he’s out of his element. He’s uncomfortable with the lavish accommodations and especially with the arrogant, swaggering men who run the company and the only person he knows there is the new special assistant to the CEO-who happens to be Jake’s ex.

Then a band of hunters, apparently lost in the woods, crash the opening-night festivities. Soon the execs of a billion-dollar company, cut off from the rest of the world, find themselves at the mercy of a group of men with guns…and a cunning plan to take Hammond Aerospace for all it’s worth.
But the hostage takers aren’t who they appear to be and neither is Jake Landry. The high flyers hadn’t wanted Jake to come along. Now he’s the only one who can save them.

Review – Power Play by Joseph Finder ePub
Jake Landry is the classic corporate maverick – a junior executive more comfortable on the manufacturing floor than in the board room, more street smart than book smart, a kid with a checkered past who fits in with the troops a lot better than he does with the suits. So when Jake is asked to fill in for his boss to attend an exclusive retreat with the top brass of his giant aerospace employer in Canada’s rugged and remote western coast, you can bet some eyebrows were raised. But when a group of Deliverance-class thugs bust up the party, the Brie and Chardonnay are soon forgotten as the beleaguered executives hunker down for a few days of murder, mayhem, suspense, and terror in the woods.

In the days before John Grisham found his sensitive side, he was cranking out crackerjack page-turners like “The Firm”, “The Pelican Brief”, and “A Time for Killing”. But the void left by “A Painted House” and other yawners was quickly and aptly filled by Joseph Finder, one of the best yarn spinners in pop fiction today, hitting another homerun of nonstop action and corporate politics with “Power Play”. This may remind you a lot of the first “Die Hard” – and indeed a young Bruce Willis could easily slip into the role of the irreverent Jake. But there is more to “Power Play” – and Finder – than a simple case of backwoods boys shooting up the rich guys for fun and profit, with hints of an undercurrent of corporate greed and corruption flowing beneath the surface of flannel shirts and prison tattoos.
Yeah, its predictable, and it won’t be taking down any literary awards, but “Power Play” sure is a lot of fun. And as always, you can count on Finder for smart and sassy dialogue, stereotypical bad guys you’ll love to hate, and smart, cliffhanging action that will keep you reading long past any plans you may have had. Keep `em coming, Mr. Finder! Power Play by Joseph Finder ePub
