Greed knows no boundaries.
A corporate takeover bleeds its way into a private company in North Texas. Behind the scenes, deadly deals erupt from the greed-filled hearts of a select few powerful enough to make them happen.
What’s an employee to do?
For one unassuming man the thought of layoffs, of losing his own job to a bunch of arrogant assholes, feels like a kick to the jewels.
Until the day Michael Doyle’s life changes forever.
Perverse alliances. An affair of the heart. A gruesome murder. A spiraling string of events thrusts Michael into a life-or-death fight to save a tortured soul and hunt down a brutal killer...one who lurks closer than he ever imagined.
FATAL GREED can be read as a stand-alone novel, or as part of the Greed Series (#1).
This was definitely a true to form suspense. It kept me intrigued throughout, and as each new clue arose I found myself guessing what might happen next. It starts with Michael, who learns that his employer has been bought by another company. After hearing the news, he stumbles across a body of a young woman who worked at the company. Soon, his neighbor is arrested for murder and Michael begins his quest to unraveling just what exactly is going on.
I think what set this book apart and made it great is several things. For one, in the story you were given a lot of clues and details but you're never quite sure of what exactly is going to play out. I also loved the greed theme. The typical large company, with its layoffs and the greed of upper level management and large corporations. Greed can be a consuming thing that can lead to so much destruction and corruption, which is depicted here. I'm looking forward to seeing how the greed theme plays out in the other three book of the series.
Fatal Greed is definitely a keep-you-on-your-toes suspense that I would recommend to anyone who is a fan of mysteries, suspense, crime novels, and thrillers. John W. Mefford's writing was excellent, the plot highly entertaining and fresh.
