Meet Adam Cassidy. He works at a fairly low-level job for a high-tech company with deep pockets. It's a big company and Adam believes he'll escape notice when he diverts some company funds into a party for a co-worker. He's mistaken, of course, and the mistake pitches him into the role of a corporate spy in a rival company. Adam isn't keen on fulfilling that role, but his alternative is prosecution and jail time. He does his employer's bidding, and from there the story takes off.

It's a cleverly conceived, fast-paced corporate espionage thriller that I found hard to put down, primarily because the characters were well-drawn. Oh, it's not a book that'll live on in your memory, but who says books should always fill that role? Sometimes, pure escapism pleasure is good enough reason to pick up a novel. This falls into that category and I'll probably seek out a few more Joseph Finder books at some point.
