Pleased to see that Spears has brought back Joel Smith, a retired CIA Field Operative, whose unique skills adapt quite well to solving the complexities of such a case. Joel is not as witty as he was in Spears previous novel DELIVERABLES, although I hope we continue to see more of him.
HEIR APPARENT is well written, and quite evident by a corporate insider. The action is continuous with surprises even until the end. Fun reading!
His writing style puts you immediately into the plot with a front row seat to the action and characters.
You become an "insider" watching, observing and thinking about the possible outcomes.
As in his previous books, Heir Apparent opens us to the world of corporate intrigue that in this case leads
to multiple murders based on the lust for power. Anyone with a business background will relate to the story
line and those who enjoy suspense and mystery will be delighted.
If you enjoy books from Koontz, Paterson & Clancy... you will not be disappointed with Heir Apparent
and Tom Spears. At most, his books are a 2-3 day read, why?, because they are compelling, fast moving,
intellectually challenging and most importantly very enjoyable.
This book has so many whodunit possibilities; I was constantly changing who I thought the villain (or villains!) were. Like all great writers Tom's storytelling is superb. He quickly draws you into the plot and keeps you thirsting for more. I stayed up until 1:30 in the morning to finish it, I couldn't put it down!
Well done, Tom Spears.
This Corporate Thriller is told in the context of real world, believable, and sometimes breathtaking experiences of the author in corporate life. When the book is finished, I reflected on just how vulnerable corporate CEO's really are in this complex world today.
I highly recommend the book.
