A cool, clever and classy Tarantino-esque thriller from a unique new voice in fiction, American screenwriter Shane Kuhn

If you're reading this, you're a new employee at Human Resources, Inc.

Congratulations. And condolences. At the very least, you're embarking on a career that you will never be able to describe as dull. You'll go to interesting places. You'll meet unique and stimulating people from all walks of life. And kill them. You will make a lot of money, but that will mean nothing to you after the first job.

Assassination, no matter how easy it looks in the movies, is the most difficult, stressful, and lonely profession on the planet.

Even when you're disguised as an intern.

John Lago is a hitman. He has some rules for you. And he's about to break every single one.

Published in the US as The Intern's Handbook

    Comments about Kill Your Boss:

    I noticed the book in store initially, read the blurb and thought it was a really interesting concept, not one that I've heard or seen before. It begins well, and gets into the action early on, describing of earlier events in humorous detail. Some events seem too good to be true and hard to believe, so it's fair enough written in a book such as this.
    Looking forward to the next instalment.

        Comments about Kill Your Boss:

        I started this book thinking it would be an average read and just something to pass the time. Oh boy was i wrong. At 350 odd pages it's short but was enough to keep me reading and managed to finish it in 2 days.

        Believable dialogue, a whip smart and cynical central character, clever reversals and an entertaining amount of bone-crunching violence help wrap up this nasty package with a pretty little bow.
