What a great book! Jake Landry is a junior executive at the Hammond Aerospace Corporation. He's also a steady, modest guy (with a sense of humor 😄) who has a turbulent past he wants to keep in the past. Ordered to fill in for his boss at the annual offsite, he’s out of his element. He’s uncomfortable with the lavish accommodations ... and especially with the arrogant, swaggering men who run the company. Then a band of hunters crashes the opening night festivities. Yet, why are they carrying army weapons rather than hunting guns?

Landry’s past is told through flashbacks built in throughout the story, which was my least favorite part of the book. The chapters didn't have headings so many times, when I thought I was reading about the present, I found I was reading about Jakes's past. It was a bit jarring. At any rate, in a strange way, Jake's past experiences have prepared him as the most likely candidate to rescue them from their impossible situation.

I loved the end of the book, which featured my favorite character - a rescue dog named Gert!

Another entertaining and fast-moving plot. Worth the read.

"Jake Landry is filling in for his boss at their aviation company's corporate retreat, and he doesn't really fit in with the higher-level executives in their expensive (and little-worn) outdoor wear. They're also cut off from the outside world, so when a group of hunters (equipped to stage a coup rather than take down a buck or two) takes over the lodge, the businessmen can't rely on their contacts or bank accounts to save them. Fortunately, Jake's been concealing his past, and he's got the skills to (hopefully) take care of the situation. Most of Joseph Finder's novels take place in the business world, so if corporate intrigue's your guilty pleasure, check out some of his other action-packed novels, like Company Man or Paranoia."
