Publisher's Summary

John Lago is a hitman. He has some rules for you. And he’s about to break every single one.
John Lago is a very bad guy. But he’s the very best at what he does. And what he does is infiltrate top-level companies and assassinate crooked executives while disguised as an intern.
Interns are invisible. That’s the secret behind HR, Inc., the elite “placement agency” that doubles as a network of assassins for hire who take down high-profile targets that wouldn’t be able to remember an intern’s name if their lives depended on it.
At the ripe old age of almost 25, John Lago is already New York City’s most successful hit man. He’s also an intern at a prestigious Manhattan law firm, clocking 80 hours a week getting coffee, answering phones, and doing all the grunt work actual employees are too lazy to do. He was hired to assassinate one of the firm’s heavily guarded partners. His internship provides the perfect cover, enabling him to gather intel and gain access to pull off a clean, untraceable hit.
Part confessional, part DIY manual, The Intern’s Handbook chronicles John’s final assignment, a twisted thrill ride in which he is pitted against the toughest - and sexiest - adversary he’s ever faced: Alice, an FBI agent assigned to take down the same law partner he’s been assigned to kill.

If you could sum up The Intern's Handbook in three words, what would they be?

Unique, disturbing, exciting

Who was your favorite character and why?

John, the emotionally robbed child turned killer.

Which character – as performed by Pete Simonelli – was your favorite?

I think Alice b/c Simonelli actually managed to make a female's voice feminine as opposed to a shrill or deep voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Towards the end of the book and the conclusion as well.

Any additional comments?

The Intern's Handbook is unlike any of the other 1,000 books I have read and listened to over the year. Just the conclusion alone is well worth one's investment in time and credit. The bumpy ride one takes towards the end of the book is fasten-your-seat belt exciting. Highly recommended.

Clever premise -- a little grisly at times

I picked this up for the premise -- love the concept. The execution (pun intended) was a little intense for this reader. Nonetheless, I recommend this book -- good narration and story moves along quickly. Good ending -- didn't see it coming.
