Evil, Inc. eBook is now on sale for $2.99

Evil, Inc. by Glenn Kaplan

The ebook for Evil, Inc. by Glenn Kaplan is now on sale for $2.99!*

About Evil, Inc.Ken Olson thought he had it all—a loving wife, a beautiful baby, and a career on the fast track. But soon after his big promotion, his whole world is shattered by a monstrous crime. A crime committed by the CEO of his own company. A crime his company will cover up at any cost.

Stripped of everything but his passion to bring the CEO to justice, Olson uncovers the dark and dangerous world behind the corporate jets and executive mansions—the private armies of mercenary killers who do the corporation’s dirtiest work under the guise of “plausible deniability,” the offshore banking havens with their clandestine black-hole accounts, and the relentless greed of the lucky few at the top.

Olson’s struggle pits him against a host of deadly rivals—the most brutal killer in the international private military underworld, the network anchorwoman with a beautiful face and not a hint of conscience, the aristocrat who pulls the strings of power and never dirties his hands, the hot young actress who makes sex a tool of deception, and, of course, his own chief executive, a bloodthirsty psychopath who has hijacked the corner office.

Set against the backdrop of today’s business world, where mega-mergers slash thousands of jobs and yield million-dollar executive payouts, Evil, Inc. is a thrilling, ticking time bomb of a story—a tale of one man’s fight against the vicious, backstabbing politics of the corporation, where ruthless power mongers rule and human life counts for nothing against the bottom line.

Goodreads Sweepstakes: Poison Pill by Glenn Kaplan

August 28, 2013 Leave a comment

About Poison Pill: Caught in a war that pits greed and ambition against conscience and love, Emma Conway faces the fight of her life—to save her family, her company, and everything she treasures.

Emma is finally living the dream—a happy second marriage and a great career. She has built Percival & Baxter’s painkiller, Acordinol, into a huge success.  But her dream becomes a nightmare when a Wall Street raider threatens a hostile takeover. Worse, the raider is no ordinary cutthroat but her ex-husband Josh Katz, father of their teenage son.
P&B’s Poison Pill defense implodes when a mysteriously tainted batch of Acordinol starts killing people, including P&B’s CEO.  Emma is put in charge as P&B’s stock plummets.

Her ex’s game traps her in a web of secrets locked within secrets.  A shadowy Russian oligarch behind Josh is lusting after the holy grail of drugs, the first Viagra for women.  And a clandestine romance between Emma’s son and the oligarch’s estranged daughter puts them in the crosshairs of their parents’ mortal combat.


New York
 Times bestselling author Glenn Kaplan looks inside the heart of today’s business world to create page-turning suspense in a powerful tale of a woman who leans into success—and discovers deadly peril.

Enter for a chance to win here!
