Professional assassin John Lago faces off against his deadliest adversary yet-his wife-in Hostile Takeover, the exciting sequel to Shane Kuhn's bestselling debut The Intern's Handbook, which the New York Post called "a sexy, darkly comic thriller." At the end of The Intern's Handbook, John tracks down his nemesis Alice but instead of putting a bullet in her head, he puts a ring on her finger and marries her. Together, they execute a hostile takeover of Human Resources, Inc., the "placement agency" that trains young assassins to infiltrate corporations disguised as interns and knock off high profile targets. As HR's former top operatives, they are successful until conflicting management styles cause an ugly breakup that locks John out of the bedroom and the boardroom. But when Alice takes on a new HR target, John is forced to return to the office battlefield in a role he swore he would never play again: the intern. What starts out as a deadly showdown turns into the two of them fighting side by side to save HR, Inc.-and their marriage. "Those who like Dexter will love John Lago" (Booklist), and in Shane Kuhn's sequel to The Intern's Handbook, readers will be rooting for this smart, witty antihero to come out on top.

Professional reviews

"John Lago is a relentless trained assassin. At least, he was before he married his chief rival, Alice. Narrator Pete Simonelli gives this macho character a gritty, steady voice that is both believable and compelling. His deep, rich baritone drives the story forward and works well for both the action and sex scenes. Listeners are carried along a fast-paced journey of love, betrayal, and violence. Simonelli demonstrates particular versatility in his characterization of Alice, who comes across as reasonable, passionate--and deadly. Her rational likability is a feat for a male narrator. Listeners who enjoy thrillers will find much to enjoy in this tense romantic caper. M.R. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
