An off-site corporate event gone disastrously wrong. The largest ransom in history. The price-tag: dead or alive. Now, in Joseph Finder's explosive thriller Power Play, it's up to Jake Landry-a modest, steady guy with a dark, hidden past-to save them all... 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.

"At a rural mountain retreat, a group of aviation executives is taken hostage by hunters. The story is an ideal vehicle for Dennis Boutsikaris. Jake Landry, the lone mid-level employee attending the meeting, realizes that the men holding him and his colleagues are far more sophisticated than they seem. The story moves quickly, and Boutsikaris's style fits the material well. In particular, Boutsikaris handles the exchanges between various arrogant executives and Landry, whom they view as an underling, with a wry sarcasm. While the story's ending is a bit pat and formulaic, POWER PLAY is an entertaining diversion that flows well on audio. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
