Editorial Reviews

Review

'The CEO is up there with the great financial thriller masterpieces ...' James N. Simpson..

'The writer's adage "write what you know" has never been more appropriately utilised as by Peter Ralph in his corporate crime novel The CEO. Ralph has used his experience as a former CEO of a publicly floated Australian company to craft a superbly structured book of ruthless business bastardry ...'− Australian Crime Database

'Douglas Aspine is so loathsome a creature, it can only be Schadenfreude that makes us read on in the fervent hope he gets his just desserts. The man who would be CEO is a spendthrift with a wife and a mistress and a truly regrettable tendency to judge people's worth on the degree to which they best serve him. It is hardly surprising that, when the opportunity presents itself, Aspine grabs it with both talons, as it is wholly in his nature that he bully and cheat and gloat over his corporate victims. Peter Ralph, in this nicely constructed thriller, arranges for our Mr Aspine to meet his nemesis. As a former chartered accountant specialising in corporate recoveries, Ralph knows his stuff.'− Simon Hughes, Australian Financial Review.

'The CEO is a pacy business thriller reminiscent... of some of John Grisham's books. It is the story of how this aggressive, greedy and ambitious man lies, cheats and manipulates his way to the CEO position of an underperforming public company, and what he does once he gets there. It's a tale of mass sackings, intimidation, insider trading, infidelity and unscrupulous behaviour - and that's just the start. Populated by thinly veiled versions of Australia's most notorious white collar criminals, it's a page-turner about the dark side of the corporate world, and it makes compulsive reading.' − Books+Publishing
