After his promising IT career is sabotaged by a conniving executive and his best friend unfairly loses his Corporate America job (and once happy family along with it), Mike Battle decides he has had enough and recruits a highly-talented, specialized team to terrorize the corrupt CEOs he holds personally responsible.
Fueled by the high-profile scandals and accounts of executive corruption that appear on the news daily, IGWT examines the growing epidemic of corporate lay-offs and the ripple effect it is having on society. The storyline captures the pulse of everyday men and women victimized by downsizing, as well as, those boggled by the staggering levels of CEO compensation.
The novel opens with a chilling scene of a CEO being held captive. Blindfolded and naked, the CEO has no idea where he is. He only knows his captors are seeking retribution for the mass layoffs he authorized.
The novel climaxes returning to the same scene when his captors place a gun to his head and demand he rehire the 15,000 employees he laid off or he will be executed on video tape for the whole world to see.
Each chapter of IGWT ends with sobering statistics, informative quotes, or humorous commentary on job loss in America and soaring CEO compensation. These commentaries, along with the timely subject matter, give the manuscript a broad populist appeal.
Stated simply, IGWT is a book of our time.
