Executive: A Thriller

Executive: A Thriller by Leslie Wolfe


See video book trailer here:

A friendly fire incident in Afghanistan takes a serious toll.
A drone, out of control, brings death and wreaks havoc on American soil.
An apparently successful corporation comes under scrutiny.

A memorable incursion behind corporate closed doors, led by an up-and-coming executive on a mission to find the truth about the lives lost to the very technology that was mandated to protect them.

Our skies aren't safe anymore.

A thought-provoking page turner, Executive sizzles with plausible scenarios, conveyed in technical and business terminology at an 
unrelenting pace.

Exploring the controversial territory of toxic leadership and its long term consequences, Executive delivers an insightful analysis spiced with cutting-edge technology and science, in an exciting, masterful political technothriller.

This review is from: Executive: A Thriller (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*

I like the thought of this book, but don't feel it was executed well. Take a secret Agency that helps solve problems in the corporate world by sending in a spy, a young broke girl who's semi smart, and a botched military drone. It's got all the makings of a fantastic thriller.
Now, here's my problem. Why Alex? She wasn't anything super special. She was broke, couldn't find a job, and never done anything like this before. She was one dimensional and I felt like her "smarts" were forced, and not natural.
The whole first half of the book was "training" Alex to work in a Corporate job or what to look for. It was boring and dragged on so horribly. I really think if there was less of that and more of the action we see in the second half, it would have been a much better story.

The Ebook has several editing errors. Though nothing to hinder you reading this story. This book has a lot of promise. I think if trimmed down in some of the more boring, over explained parts, it would have flowed better in stead of dragging down your reading enjoyment. I would give another book by this author a chance, and see if it's just a one off problem, or if it's the author's writing style, but this book just wasn't for me.
