The Job, novel by Douglas Kennedy
Jean A. Vachon
Ottawa- Ned Allen is an upward-mobile salesman for a computer magazine... Married with Lizzie, his weakness, like a lot of people, is to spend too much for the amount he earns. Perpetually in wait of his bonuses, he works in constant tension.
Disaster strikes when his magazine is sold.
An offer of promotion turns out to be a false hope and he loses his job. A fellow colleague has tricked him... A fight ensues...
His wife questions his capacity to dialogue. All goes amiss. And then, his merit is recognized. He is offered a job that has the appearance of a promotion. But his new employer turns out to be dishonest and a blackmailer.
Will he be able to pay off his debts and regain the confidence and love of his wife?
Fast-paced incidents true to life masterly treated by the renowned author, Douglas Kennedy, maintain the interest of the reader from beginning to end.
In short, The Job, is a novel well-worth reading!
An enjoyable listen, but not my favorite of Kelnnedy's books. A long setup leading to a hurried predictable resolution and ending.
