My Favorite Reads - August 27th

Alyce at At Home With Books has started hosting a weekly meme with her favorite reads of the past. I decided to join in on this great idea so I can remember some books that have stuck with me through the years. To see other favorite reads and join in go here.

Cut-throat competition takes on an unfortunately literal meaning in this thriller of corporate skullduggery, the first of a new series. As Christian Gillette, newly dubbed chairman of Everest Capital, leaves his predecessor's funeral and prepares to enter his limousine, someone blows up the car. As the ruthless Gillette works to expand his company and defeat his rivals from within and without the private equity firm, he must also determine who wishes him dead and why.
This week's choice was my first Stephen Frey book, which I read back in 2006. I had read medical suspense, legal suspense, general suspense, but had never heard of corporate suspense(now I have), so I tried out Stephen Frey. Luckily I came up with the first book in his Christian Gillette series. I loved this book - loved the characters, especially Christian. The suspense was good and it was a fast enjoyable read. I have since read the next two in the series and enjoyed them. I have his newest book, Hell's Gate on reserve at the library (it's not in this series) and can't wait to read it.

I don't think I've ever read corporate suspense either. I have to keep this one in mind for when I'm in the mood for a suspenseful read.

I've never read any suspense (unless romantic suspense counts?), and I know that makes me a huge wimp...but I'll keep Frey's name in mind should I ever feel the need to try it out!

My pick for the week is L.M. Montgomery's Magic for Marigold.
