Enter Carol Himmler, a beautiful yet ruthless executive who chews up employees with the indifference of a wild animal eating her young. When a chemical spill results from workforce cuts she made, Carol hires mobster Sal Scruci to make the problem go away. Only problem is Scruci never goes away. All hell breaks loose when Sal reinvents himself as an executive talent scout--not a guy who takes no for an answer.
Praise For Emperors' Clothes…
''Emperors' Clothes is a must-read for every executive search consultant, corporate recruiter and anyone who has ever been 'headhunted'. Emperors' Clothes uncovers the narcissism and nonsense that goes on in the recruiting game as people on both sides of the desk try to move up the ladder.'' --Deborah Sawyer, Managing Director, Executive Advisors; also, former Senior Client Partner, Korn Ferry International
