Jake is an underling at his company, so he is surprised to suddenly be told he is going to their private retreat with all the executives in the Candadian wilderness. Jake figures out why he was invited when he spots his ex-girlfriend Ali with the CEO as her personal assistant. Jake is not into playing the corporate power game, but the skills that he learned from his secret past may be the only thing that keeps him alive when a group of armed men take over the retreat center and hold all of the executives hostage for money.[return]I loved the fast paced action of this book and the way the author gradually revealed details about the past that explained the present events. The author was great about revealing just enough to keep me guessing the entire way through. I loved this suspense and highly recommend this to those who like page-turners filled with thrills and suspense.

Another entertaining and fast-moving plot. Worth the read.

"Jake Landry is filling in for his boss at their aviation company's corporate retreat, and he doesn't really fit in with the higher-level executives in their expensive (and little-worn) outdoor wear. They're also cut off from the outside world, so when a group of hunters (equipped to stage a coup rather than take down a buck or two) takes over the lodge, the businessmen can't rely on their contacts or bank accounts to save them. Fortunately, Jake's been concealing his past, and he's got the skills to (hopefully) take care of the situation. Most of Joseph Finder's novels take place in the business world, so if corporate intrigue's your guilty pleasure, check out some of his other action-packed novels, like Company Man or Paranoia."
