Pulled from the brink of suicide after suffering a tragic loss, John and Sarah Michaels enter an exclusive rehabilitation facility deep in the New Mexico desert where they hope to rediscover a reason to live.

His life as a corporate raider behind him, John attempts to embrace the program to save his marriage and himself. But as the days pass, John begins to suspect all is not as it seems with the unusual treatment methods.

When participants begin dying, John realizes the only chance for his and Sarah’s survival is to do the impossible and launch a hostile takeover of the program…but can he do it before time runs out?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

An entertaining and easy read that immediately grabs you from the prologue. I found myself staying up late at night just to keep the pages turning.


I could hardly put down this psychological thriller. Well written and well edited, it kept me turning pages, wrapped up in its dark plot. There were parts that made me squirm, but I kept coming back to see what was going to happen next. I can’t wait for the next one to come out.


Hostile Takeover blew me away. Loved the plot. Loved the characters (except for the ones I really hated…but you were supposed to hate them so that’s okay). And I felt like I was IN the New Mexico desert the whole time.


This was a fabulous and suspenseful book! It was well-written and impossible to put down. It kept my attention on every single page and I couldn’t wait to read what would happen next.


I grew up reading suspense and so I am discerning about the suspense novels I read. I will have to say this one by far one of the best ones I’ve read in a really long time. I was so into it that I didn’t realize I had read into the wee hours of the night! What a great thriller!
