THE PAY WAS GOOD. THE PRICE WAS MURDER.
Ned Allen is a young, upwardly mobile ad salesman for a successful computer magazine. Several years into his career, he's confident that he's finally left his small-town roots behind, and that the sophisticated Manhattan world he covets is his forever. His wife, Lizzie, is also flourishing at a prestigious public relations firm. Life, it seems, is just where they want it -- until Ned is faced with a seemingly clearcut moral choice that pulls the bottom out from under his feet.
Ned's company is sold and his world is suddenly turned upside down. Salvation appears in the unlikely form of an old high school friend who is working for lack Ballantine, a former real estate tycoon with a shady past who has recently made a much-heralded comeback. When, against his better judgement, Ned accepts a job working for Ballantine's latest venture, an offshore private equity fund, he tells himself it's just another job. But it turns out that Ballantine has other uses for Ned....
An adrenaline-pumping thriller, The Job is destined to catapult Kennedy into the ranks of bestsellers like Grisham and Turow.
