Paul MacDonaldabout this book: 180 million people work in Corporate America.
76% percent of them are miserable.
If you are one of them, this book is for you.
The Chuck Restic mystery series follows a bored Human Resources manager looking for a purpose in life. By all accounts, his life and career are a "success" but something is missing.
Only when he ventures out of the confines of his Los Angeles skyscraper to investigate a missing colleague does he start to feel alive again and find a meaning to what he does all day.
The first book in the series -- SMILE NOW, CRY LATER -- has our hero looking into the disappearance of a co-worker. The trail leads him all over the city and into all levels of society, from the gritty underworld of the Armenian mob to the champagne-galas of the city's mega-developers. It is very much an LA story.
The Chuck Restic series is a fun ride that mixes a good old-fashioned murder mystery with a humorous send-up of Corporate America.
