I received a copy of this book from LibraryThing for an honest review

Sam is a young man who lives with two roommates and is trying to fit in. He didn't really like his job, in fact he feels like he is going nowhere in the company. As Sam starts to look for a new job, he receives an offer that is almost to good to be true. The Blanchard Corporation has offered him a very lucrative position in their organization as an auditor overseeing a project. The salary is far more than he has ever seen and the perks are a nice bonus that intice him to take the job.

Within weeks his life is completely changed and he thinks he has found the perfect job that he hopes will be long term. Angela, his girlfriend moves in with him at his new apartment and they are content with the direction their relationship is headed. He has lost contact with his old roommates and many of his friends. It seems they don't agree with the relationship that Angela and Sam have. The only glimmer of retaining a friend from his past , is Susan. He thinks of her as his little sister. Will he confide in her when he starts to have doubts about his new job? Is Angela safe with Sam or will an unforeseen accident change the once easy going guy to an angry person with questions he will be determined to get answers for?

As Sam becomes move involved in his position at the corporation , he sees discrepancies that are soon explained away with a quick summation in hopes that his curiosity will not surface again. Sam visits other sites for the corporation and starts to suspect that something deeper, more secretive is going on in the company. What is the corporation hiding ? Sam will soon find himself at the forefront of protecting a closely guarded secret in modern history.

The author does a great job of developing Sam's character. He is extremely intelligent , a go getter and one who seeks the truth. He won't stop till he finds answers and with his wit and keen knowledge of technology, he could be a target for those who want to stop the corporation at all cost . This is a great face paced and very intriguing book that is well written with intense scenes and action that is nonstop. There are people in the story that will be either prove their loyalty to the corporation or perhaps turn on them in order to destroy the secret that has been so closely guarded. Thank you for a story that has twists and turns and intrigue that will have you guessing till the end.
