Readers say: 'Classic Kennedy. Brilliant plot, wonderful dialogue and characters. You are bowled over by the pace.' 'Excellent five star read from the first to the last page' 'If you haven't read any of Douglas Kennedy books please do' Ned Allen is young, smart, and upwardly mobile. Several years into his career as an ad salesman for a successful computer magazine, Ned's finally left his small-town roots behind, and is certain that the sophisticated Manhattan world he covets is his forever. His wife Lizzie is also a rising star of a prestigious PR firm. It seems that Ned's made it. But then what appeared to be a career break shows its true colours. Ned's forced to make some tough calls, among them a question of ethics and the small matter of whether to lie to his wife - and when the tough calls just keep getting tougher he finds himself on the brink of losing everything ...

A furiously paced, compulsive thriller... there are affinities with John Grisham's The Firm, but a greater compliment is that The Job also reminds me of Glengarry Glen Ross, David Mamet's hymn to the salesman * The Times * Slickly plotted, with dialogue crisper than a fresh pretzel, and cynically observant of modern mores. The Job rattles towards its conclusion like a runaway train. Like a good salesman, Kennedy really knows how to close * Esquire * Kennedy has again employed his Big Apple chutzpah, a lot of careful reseach and above all, his ability to tell a story that hardly ever slots down from express train speed to construct another highly entertaining page turner * Irish Times * Intoxicatingly readable * Kirkus Reviews * What begins as an everyday tale of takeover, downsizing and outplacement in the ruthless Manhattan business world rapidly mutates for our ad sales hero Ned Allen into something altogether sinister and cut-throat. Slickly plotted, with dialogue crisper than a fresh pretzel, and cynically observant of modern mores. THE JOB rattles towards its concluison like a runaway train. Like a good salesman, Kennedy really knows how to close. * ESQUIRE * A furiously paced, compulsive thrille... there are affinities with John Grisham's THE FIRM, but a greater compliment is that THE JOB also reminds me of GLNGARRY GLEN ROSS, David Mamet's hymn to the salesman. * THE TIMES * Kennedy has again employed his Big Apple chutzpah, a lot of careful reseach and above all, his ability to tell a story that hardly ever slots down from express train speed to construct another highly entertaining page turner. * IRISH TIMES * Excellent... one of the best reads of the year. * Frances Fyfield *
