Evil, Inc.

Forge Books

Ken Olson thought he had it all—a loving wife, a beautiful baby, and a career on the fast track. But soon after his big promotion, his whole world is shattered by a monstrous crime. A crime committed by the CEO of his own company. A crime his company will cover up at any cost.
 Stripped of everything but his passion to bring the CEO to justice, Olson uncovers the dark and dangerous world behind the corporate jets and executive mansions—the private armies of mercenary killers who do the corporation’s dirtiest work under the guise of “plausible deniability,” the offshore banking havens with their clandestine black-hole accounts, and the relentless greed of the lucky few at the top.
           Olson's struggle pits him against a host of deadly rivals—the most brutal killer in the international private military underworld, the network anchorwoman with a beautiful face and not a hint of conscience, the aristocrat who pulls the strings of power and never dirties his hands, the hot young actress who makes sex a tool of deception, and, of course, his own chief executive, a bloodthirsty psychopath who has hijacked the corner office.
            Set against the backdrop of today’s business world, where mega-mergers slash thousands of jobs and yield million-dollar executive payouts, Evil, Inc. is a thrilling, ticking time bomb of a story—a tale of one man’s fight against the vicious, backstabbing politics of the corporation, where ruthless power mongers rule and human life counts for nothing against the bottom line.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

Sit!" little Sara cried with delight as she pounded the tray of her high chair. Ken Olson looked up from his coffee and The Wall Street Journal as his wife and child engaged in that daily ritual of mortal combat called breakfast. "Sandy, are you trying to instill all your bad habits in our daughter before she turns three?" Sandy knelt down with a paper towel to clean up the mess. With
