Editorial Reviews

Review

"A FIRST-RATE THRILLER PACKED WITH NAIL-BITING SUSPENSE--READS LIKE GRISHAM WITH AN EDGE!" -- The Raven Book Reviews

"Company Confidential pulls back the curtain and confirms your worse fears about what goes on behind the scenes of big business. NOT TO BE MISSED." -- Brian Bain, author of THE EIGHTH METHOD

"Tom McCrory has penned a first novel of STARTLING TWISTS and UNNERVING TURNS." -- Wicked Company Reviews

From the Publisher

In this suspenseful corporate thriller from Tom McCrory, women are objects and men are pawns at Campbell Industries in Los Angeles. The ground-rules for survival in this hostile workplace have long been established: 1)If you value your paycheck, never question authority; 2) "yes-men" prosper in this environment; and 3) for female employees, there is no such thing as an unwelcome sexual advance.

Scott Murphy, a newly hired sales rep relocated to L.A. from Memphis, quickly learns that non-compliance with these guidelines can prove fatal. Murphy soon clashes with Glenn Stevens, V.P. and self-appointed dictator of Campbell Industries. As long as sales numbers are up, the New Orleans based home office gives Stevens free reign to manage as he sees fit. When one employee is reported missing and another is found murdered, Stevens devises a strategic plan to frame Murphy. If he wants to live, Murphy must execute his own plan to bring Stevens to justice, and expose the sordid world behind the brass and mahogany facade of Campbell Industries.

I ran across a review for this book in JANUARY MAGAZINE, and thought I'd check it out. Truly a great read! I lost several hours sleep over this one. Twists and turns I never would have expected. "Company Confidential" captures everything in the Corporate America that the average white-collar worker finds unethical and revolting however tends to overlook in return for a steady check. A definite A+ in my opinion. I hope to see a movie version in the near future.

Tom McCrory brings 15 years experience with the cut-throat environment of Corporate America to COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL , first in a series of corporate thrillers.
Ace sales agent Scott Murphy thinks he was "born ready" to take his place on the Campbell Industries team, but nothing could prepare him for business California style. Regional VP Glenn Stevens is a meglomaniac for whom rape and murder are all in a day's work.
Despite being hampered by a conscience and integrity, Murphy thrives in his new territory-inadvertently making some dangerous enemies. He meets Lisa LeDoux, the woman of his dreams, and begins to plan for a future away from Campbell Industries. But events have been set in motion that nothing can avert, and soon Murphy's life has shattered into terror and tragedy.
Tom McCrory has penned a first novel of startling twists and unnerving turns. A Writer's Showcase selection, COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL was awarded the 2000 Gold Medal Award for Best Mystery/Thriller by the Southern Writer's Guild.

Format: Paperback
COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL is Tom McCrory's debut novel and the first in a planned series of corporate thrillers.
Glenn Stevens is V.P. of Campbell Industries although he acts like a dictator. Stevens treats the employees by intimidation and terrorizing them. If you happen to be a woman, he treats you as his personal sex toy to use whenever and wherever he wants. To refuse him could mean your life.
Scott Murphy moves from Memphis to Los Angeles to work for Campbell Industries and n wonders what he has gotten himself into. People are dying at Campbell and someone is trying to frame Scott. Can he clear his name before it is to late?
COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL starts out with a horrifying sexual assault and barbaric murder that is described in compelling detail. Glenn Stevens is as depraved as the devil himself. He lacks any moral values and defiantly doesn't have a conscience of any kind which in my book makes him the worst kind of predator.
McCrory writes a breakneck and frenzied ride through the world of big business.
I was hooked hard right with so many ups and downs I felt dizzy with excitement all the way from the beginning to the breathless ending. Move over Grisham, Tom McCrory is here to take over where you left off.

A great new author has hit the streets, and with a vengeance! From the opening scene to the closing last line, it is an "on the edge of your seat" thriller that captivates you all the way through. We all know his characters, we have all dealt with them in one way or another, and he brings them to life like no other. The story keeps you intrigued, the twists and turns keep you riveted, and the ending is spectacular!! Buy this book with a warning, be prepared to do nothing else until it is finished. You will not be able to put it down! I am already looking for his next work.

This book is a real page-turner--I finished it in a day-and-a-half! A classic story of good vs evil (and I do mean EVIL) plays out as the author weaves together several believable characters with very believable dialogue. Anyone who has worked for a big corporation can relate to the events portrayed in this suspense novel. A real guy's book--if you like reading Baldacci, Clancy, Grisham or Turow, check this one out.
