John Lago, an intern at one of the biggest law firms in Manhattan. He clocks eighty hours a week getting coffee, answering phones, and doing all of the grunt work no one else wants to do…and he doesn’t make a dime. But John isn’t trying to claw his way to the top of the corporate food chain. He was hired to assassinate one of the firm’s high profile, heavily guarded partners. His internship is the perfect cover—he can gather intel and secure the access he needs to execute a clean, untraceable kill.
The Intern’s Handbook begins as an unofficial survival guide for new recruits at Human Resources, Inc.—a front for one of the most elite assassin training and “placement” programs in the world—and becomes a chronicle of John’s final assignment, a twisted, violent thrill ride in which he is pitted against the strongest (and sexiest) adversary he has ever faced: Alice, a federal agent assigned to investigate the same law firm partner John’s been hired to kill.

My review for Casual Friday (which is still FREE!)
I can't wait to see the film adaption!
What an incredible story! There was a feeling of six degrees of separation throughout, but it totally worked! The story was full of action, lots of comedic moments, and mixed it all up with this intricately told tale. I just couldn't get enough of it!
The idea of an intern being an assassin is unheard of, so being a fresh and new premise made for an even more exciting read.
I do have to say that I am not sure how to feel about the ending, which you know endings mean a lot to me. I think everyone should have got what was coming to them, but can still see why the author went the direction that he did. It just wasn't convincing to me.
I still think it is a wicked story and highly recommend it to you all!
