So for the odd person that read my blog (and I know who you are) if you have a kindle or a kindle app, and work in the IT Industry you have to read this book.
I Blogged earlier about his .. Carpe Diem- Flaphead.com – Headhunter by Ashley Gardiner
My wife is giving me so much grief, as I just cant put my iPad down, this book has me gripped.
I don’t know who Ashley Gardiner (but if you google “Ashley Gardiner” I’m the second hit :-) and the first hit is for an WAirport Administrator at Pret A Manger”, whereas the if you google “Ashley Gardiner head hunter” you get me ;-) first and then amazon) .. but this book just rocks .. I even feel like cheating and going to the last chapter to see what happens, but I know that is wrong ;-)
Why isn’t this book in paper back? I have to keep charging my iPad to read it :-|
Will let you know how it ends … maybe :-D
So I downloaded Amazon #Kindle to my #iPad, and I have my first book Headhunter by Ashley Gardiner (http://www.amazon.com/Headhunter-ebook/dp/B003TO5HJI/ref=pd_rhf_p_t_1)
Seeing as I was working in IT when all the banking issue happened I thought it might be a good read. Will let you know how I get on .. Check it out ..
Darren Halford and his friends are enduring mediocre lives in the rat race, doing jobs they hate in the hope that one day they will be rewarded with a comfortable retirement.
He watches helplessly as the banking system collapses, making him just one of millions of ordinary citizens who have seen a bright financial future destroyed by the recklessness of bankers. Already worn down by the daily grind, Darren realises that their greed and stupidity have added more than two thousand commutes and ten years to his working life and eliminated any hopes of the comfortable retirement he had planned for and dreamed of.
Denied the satisfaction of seeing the villains punished and enraged by the contrasting fortunes of the perpetrators and victims, Darren takes matters into his own hands. He realises that his position as an IT engineer at a bank affords particular opportunities to track, manipulate then kill the financial Gods who thought they were immune to consequence.
In the course of inflicting vigilante justice Darren has to reconcile himself to the reality that he is no more immune to consequence than he has made his victims. He turns to his friends in the hope that they can save him from a premature and violent death.
