"Your career profile could be of interest to us. Would you please get in touch?" J r me Carceville finds it impossible to resist such an e-mail, especially when the invitation comes from De Wavre International, one of the top head-hunting organizations in the world. He applies, and after undergoing a variety of searching interviews and high-level tests, he is eventually selected for a decisive final examination. The fifteen talented and driven finalists arrive at a hotel on an island in the middle of an Alpine lake. Only two of them have any realistic chance of the job, and when Del Rieco, the "games-master", informs them that the nature of the contest is simulated economic warfare, that their only weapons will be a computer and some strategic information, and that their competitors must be eliminated, it becomes clear that this is no ordinary recruitment drive. Frenetic, ingenious and totally up-to-the-minute, Michel Crespy has written the first thriller to prize open the competitive jungle of the corporate world.

OMG - I really tried to get into this book - did the required 100 pages before ditching. It is just full of waffle waffle waffle waffle etc..... Blurb on the back sounded promising but just too wordy and not enough action. Read full review

Review: Head Hunters

User Review  - David - Goodreads

A fairly well written thriller but the author is a little too attached to his habit of dropping in amateur social psychology and 'insights' into the nature of dog eat dog capitalism. Plus after a slow build-up the ending seems to have been tacked on in a rush and is not psychologically convincing. Read full review
