Evil, Inc.

Forge Books

Could an all-powerful CEO get away with the ultimate crime? Evil, Inc. is a ticking time bomb of a story that explodes the hottest issues in corporate America today.

Ken Olson’s world is shattered by a crime his company must cover up at any cost. Stripped of everything but his passion for justice, Olson discovers the dark and dangerous world behind the corporate jets—the hired killers who secretly do the corporation’s dirtiest work, the clandestine offshore bank accounts, and the greedy machinations of the lucky few at the top.

Olson’s struggle pits him against a host of deadly rivals—the psychopathic CEO who has hijacked the corner office, the brutal killer from the private military underworld, the network anchorwoman without a hint of conscience, the aristocrat who pulls the strings of power, and the hot young actress who makes sex a tool of deception.
