In The Press
A thrilling topical mystery . . . What follows is an eye-opening portrayal of the fascinating lives and personalities of the key players and of the machinations corporate personnel employ to protect themselves and ensure the completion of the pending acquisition. The sophisticated depictions of human greed and frailty lead to a surprising, yet believable, ending.” Publishers Weekly
I love "One From Without". To me it’s Jack’s best book since "Convergence". Jack’s experience in corporate board rooms makes this book unmatched in authenticity and the only novel I know which fully deserves the label of corporate intrigue.” The flashback portion detailing life in the intelligence services are on the level of LeCarre. Beyond that, the writing and detail are often flat-out beautiful and the characterizations deep and compelling.This is a book that pulls you in from the start and propels you through the pages. A truly wonderful novel.” Scott Turow
