Killer Instinct

New or Used: $24.95
Jason Steadman is a thirty-year-old sales executive living in Boston and working for a electronics giant, a competitor to Sony and Panasonic. He's a witty, charismatic guy who's well liked at the office, but he lacks the 'killer instinct' necessary to move up the corporate ladder. To the chagrin of his ambitious wife, it looks as if his career has hit a ceiling: Jason's been sidelined. But all that will change one evening when Jason meets Kurt Semko, a former Special Forces officer just back from Iraq. Looking for a decent pitcher for the company softball team, Jason gets Kurt, who was once drafted by the majors, a job in Corporate Security. Soon, good things start to happen for Jason - and bad things start to happen to Jason's rivals. His career suddenly takes off. He's an overnight success. Only too late does Jason discover that his friend Kurt has been secretly paving his path to the top by the most 'efficient' - and ruthless - means available. After all, Kurt says, 'Business is war, right?' But when Jason tries to put a stop to it, he finds that his new best friend has become the most dangerous enemy imaginable.And now it's far more than just his career that lies in the balance. A riveting tale of ambition, intrigue, and the price of success, KILLER INSTINCT is Joseph Finder at his best.

Promotional Information

KILLER INSTINCT won the 2006 International Thriller Writers' Best Novel award. In PARANOIA and COMPANY MAN, Joseph Finder has written two of the best thrillers of the last 5 years. They are both powerful, pacey and most of all, zeitgeisty. In the same way as Ludlum did in the 70s and 80s, Finder captures the mood of a time and a world. Joe has received brilliant review coverage and substantial sales for both titles. He is now ready to break through into the big-league. Joe is already a NEW YORK TIMES bestseller in the USA and has been in the INDEPENDENT top ten over here.

About the Author

In addition to fiction, Finder continues to write extensively on espionage and international affairs relations for THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE WASHINGTON POST, and THE NEW REPUBLIC. He lives in Boston with his wife and daughter.
