Evil Inc has an interesting plot, albeit not a very realistic one. The book is fiction though so that's not a huge factor but what the book really misses is characters you care about. I really couldn't have cared less about Ken Olsen, even less so for his ungrateful for her life of luxury annoying meddling in his career wife Sandy, who gets her comeuppance (unfortunately so does their innocent baby). The villains, major and minor were a bit too cartoonish for my liking and like Olsen I didn't feel any emotion, hatred, hoping they'll get what they deserve or anything else. Evil Inc also misses that can't put down factor, that the leading novels in this genre have.
If you love the business thriller genre you have to check out Harry Bingham's masterpiece The Money Makers. Being Alexander by Nancy Sparling, The Boss by Stan Pottinger, CEO by Peter Ralph (not on Amazon at time of review) and Company Man as well as a lot of other work by Joseph Finder are absolute must reads. If you've ever thought about sending your resume in to a job advertisement in the paper, read Donald E Westlake's classic The Ax first!
For pure fun entertainment in the corporate world give Syrup or Company: A Novel by Max Barry a look as well as The beauty of truth by Bruno Bouchet.
All the above are better than Evil Inc. But if you're really interested in what the basic plot of this novel is - Ken Olsen becomes the youngest person to be promoted to a high paying position in Ayvil Plastics. The man responsible for him being there, Pennigton is also young and ruthless and the two of them are much hated by their long time company serving colleagues and managers. There are many who will do whatever it takes to embarrass and bring them both down. Soon a ruthless plan is put into play that is more evil than anyone could have ever imagined. Ayvil Plastics loses pretty much every employee's life in an act of pure evil. Ken loses more than just colleagues as his wife and kid were in the building's daycare centre at the time. It soon becomes apparent that Ken transferred money to certain people while in charge, only Ken knows he didn't. Ken could just go quietly and restart his life elsewhere, but he has no intention of doing this, Ayvil Inc has just given him in his severance package, the financial resources to spend his time finding out who killed his family and colleagues and he intends to do just that!
