Didn't like the story or the writing. ( )

In Kingdom Come, Thane Coder is a former athlete who is now working for a construction company. Despite his nice job and sweet salary and hot wife, this is not good enough for Thane. When the president of the company announced he was going to bring the company public and promote his son, Thane began making deals with the union, which was basically a mob run outfit. He murders James King, the president of the company and tries to frame his son Scott for the murder. Meanwhile, he is playing both sides of the fence, cutting deals with the FBI.
Kingdom Come is a sordid tale of deceit and betrayal. The plot keeps moving, but is often lacking in realism. All is all, the story had a fast pace and tension. The characters are lacking a bit in substance. It's worth reading for the entertainment value, but not one of the more memorable books I have read.

This is a fast-paced page-turning thriller about a good guy too easily coerced into going bad by a rich wife who can never have enough. I think the author could have accomplished as much had he avoided all the over-drinking and drug use but otherwise it is a tightly constructed story involving corporate characters and finagling you won't have to imagine. You won't like any of the characters, and the author states on amazon.com that he based the story on types of people he knows well and situations that are more true than fiction, but you won't be able to stop reading.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446577421, Hardcover)

Bob King is a self-made billionaire who parlayed a rusty backhoe into 27th spot on Forbes' list. Now, his corporation is a multi-billion dollar construction company that instills greed and competition among friends, including his son Scott and his two best friends, Thane and Ben. But instead of handing over the company's crown, Bob reveals a massive public offering that will make him CEO for life. Thane's wife, Jessica, is furious and goads him into a conspiracy to kill Bob. When the board of directors makes Thane CEO, Ben investigates the truth - and Thane realises that he can only be safe if his old friend is also dead.
