Best of the Year--Seattle Times JOHN LAGO IS A HITMAN. HE HAS SOME RULES FOR YOU. AND HE' S ABOUT TO BREAK EVERY SINGLE ONE. John Lago is a very bad guy. But he's the very best at what he does. And what he does is infiltrate top-level companies and assassinate crooked executives while disguised as an intern. Interns are invisible. That's the secret behind HR, Inc., the elite "placement agency" that doubles as a network of assassins for hire who take down high-profile targets that wouldn't be able to remember an intern's name if their lives depended on it. At the ripe old age of almost twenty-five, John Lago is already New York City's most successful hit man. He's also an intern at a prestigious Manhattan law firm, clocking eighty hours a week getting coffee, answering phones, and doing all the grunt work actual employees are too lazy to do. He was hired to assas-sinate one of the firm's heavily guarded partners. His internship provides the perfect cover, enabling him to gather intel and gain access to pull off a clean, untraceable hit. Part confessional, part DIY manual, The Intern's Handbook chronicles John's final assignment, a twisted thrill ride in which he is pitted against the toughest--and sexiest--adversary he's ever faced: Alice, an FBI agent assigned to take down the same law partner he's been assigned to kill.
Praise For The Intern's Handbook…
“The Intern's Handbook is Tarantino funny and as tense as a Mexican standoff.
Shane Kuhn has written a movie lover’s thriller that’s as entertaining as it is smart.”
-Andrew Pyper, bestselling author of The Demonologist
