Jason Steadman is a thirty-year-old sales executive living
in Boston and working for an 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, as
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.
