Finder did a great job writing about high-tech companies in general, although I don't know about intrigue at the level he writes about in the book.
To give a general plot summary with as few spoilers as possible, the main character, Adam Cassidy, does a Bad Thing at his job with Company A. CEO at Company A decides to turn him loose as a corporate spy at Company B, which is the main competitor to Company A. Cassidy is to report back with anything and everything he finds.
Due to the feedback from Company A's team, Cassidy does well at Company B and is exposed to a much higher level of the company than originally intended. The expectations and stress level ramp up... and a great read ensues.
That's all I'm giving away (most of which I think you can read off the back cover). It was tough to put down, and it's possible this one makes it into the coveted "re-read" category for me.
