Company Man by Joseph Finder
Nick Conover is the CEO of a major corporation, a local boy made good, and once the most admired man in a company town. But that was before the layoffs.
When a faceless stalker menaces his family, Nick, a single father of two since the recent death of his wife, finds that the gated community they live in is no protection at all. He decides to take action, a tragedy ensues - and immediately his life spirals out of control.
At work, Nick begins to uncover a conspiracy against him, involving some of his closest colleagues. He doesn't know who he can trust - including the brilliant, troubled new woman in his life.
Meanwhile, his actions are being probed by a homicide detective named Audrey Rhimes, a relentless investigator with a strong sense of morality - and her own, very personal reason for pursuing Nick Conover.
With everything he cares about in the balance, Nick discovers strengths he never knew he had. His enemies don't realize how hard he'll fight to save his company. And nobody knows how far he'll go to protect his family.
This is what I say :
Company Man did not disappoint. I have high thriller expectation nowadays when it comes to author Joseph Finder.
Buried Secrets was the book that started it off for me two years ago and it was great. Subsequently I read Paranoia and it was good too.
I found Company Man recently at the same book fair/sales that I found Paranoia. I am not able to and will not be able to find such titles in the mainstream bookstores as sorry to say, Joseph Finder is not well known at this part of the world which is a pity actually as he writes great thriller.
Nick Conover is like any CEO and certainly not a hero. In fact, he is quite unlikable although he tried to play the good guy. Audrey the investigator wasn't very likable too in her zeal to nail Nick down.
However, the story itself was quite enjoyable and certainly thrilling and the unexpected twist at the end certainly made the story more interesting.
I can't wait to discover the next title by Joseph Finder.
