Publisher's Summary

Professional assassin John Lago faces off against his deadliest adversary yet - his wife - in Hostile Takeover, the exciting sequel to Shane Kuhn's best-selling debut The Intern's Handbook, which the New York Post called "a sexy, darkly comic thriller."
At the end of The Intern's Handbook, John tracks down his nemesis, Alice, but instead of putting a bullet in her head, he puts a ring on her finger and marries her. Together they execute a hostile takeover of Human Resources, Inc., the "placement agency" that trains young assassins to infiltrate corporations disguised as interns and knock off high-profile targets. As HR's former top operatives, they are successful until conflicting management styles cause an ugly breakup that locks John out of the bedroom and the boardroom.
But when Alice takes on a new HR target, John is forced to return to the office battlefield in a role he swore he would never play again: the intern. What starts out as a deadly showdown turns into the two of them fighting side by side to save HR, Inc. - and their marriage.
"Those who like Dexter will love John Lago" (Booklist), and in Shane Kuhn's sequel to The Intern's Handbook, listeners will be rooting for this smart, witty antihero to come out on top.

Ultra entertaining from start to finish!

I listen to a lot of audio books but have never felt compelled to write a review until now. This title was so entertaining and well written and narrated, I spent extra time just sitting in my car at the supermarket listening!

The writing is tight and clever, the plot unexpected, and unique. By far the most suspenseful and exciting assassin novel I've listened to. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes the genre, and likes that Kill Bill style whimsy.

Power in well thought out

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I enjoyed the banter between Mr. and Mrs. Hitman. The hotel setting on the weeding day and the explosive nature of what happens is really best seller material.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
