Jason Steadman is a thirty-year-old sales exec for a major electronics company in Boston. He's witty and well-liked but, to the chagrin of his ambitious wife, it looks like his career has hit a ceiling. He lacks the one thing that could help him get ahead: a killer instinct.
All of that changes when Jason meets Kurt, a former Special Forces officer just back from Iraq. Looking for a decent pitcher for the company softball team, Jason gets Kurt--once drafted by the majors--a job in Corporate Security. Soon, good things start to happen for Jason--and bad things start to happen to Jason's rivals.
Jason discovers too late that Kurt has been paving his path to the top by the most efficient means available. Now that his new best friend has become the most dangerous enemy imaginable, Jason stands to lose far more than his job.
A riveting tale of ambition, intrigue, and the price of success, Killer Instinct is Joseph Finder at his very best.
