This is a greatly amusing book! It's a real page turner. The author, William Heffermnn, told a story about internal corporate warfare with great details. It's a warfare between the Dinosaurs Club and a group of cunning executives.

I found this one a highly entertaining read. Heffernan's writing style put me in mind of Donald Westlake, one of my all-time favorite storytellers.

A cleverly conceived thriller which would make a better movie than nearly everything out there.

Showed promise, but lost me at the end with a highly improbable scenario.

Lacked something: real characters? believable plot? hmm, don't waste your time.

A little dated, but good story.
