The Aspen Account, by Bryan Devore. (Still 0.99?)

The mysterious skiing death of a software company employee launches a thrilling series of events as Michael Chapman is assigned to replace him, and newspaper reporter Sarah Matthews starts investigating a conspiracy that could topple the mega-corporation.

"I felt like you were on a thrilling rollercoaster and that you were really feeling the emotions/hardships of the characters. I think the main character, Michael Chapman was a realistic guy and you could totally relate to what he was going thru. I was worried about the accounting perspective, but the author explained it in realistic layman terms, but did not talk down to the reader. There were many twists and every time that I thought I would put it down, I just had to read "one more page"... It was a nice twist of "James Bond" meets "The Firm."" -- Amazon reviewer

After a colleague at Denver’s top accounting firm dies in a mysterious skiing accident, Michael Chapman is assigned to replace him on an audit of software behemoth X-Tronic. At the same time, rookie journalist Sarah Matthews of the Denver Post starts nosing into rumors that may connect X-Tronic to her brother’s death. And the reclusive Aspen billionaire who founded X-Tronic thirty years ago begins to fear that events unfolding at his company will finally make him pay for a past he would love to forget: when he sold out friends and neglected family in his single-minded pursuit of success. Soon all three will discover just how much they are willing to risk to uncover the truth behind a conspiracy that will shock the world.

"The nature of Michael's double life can be frustratingly elusive, but it's exciting to watch him risk everything in order to unveil an elaborate, insidious conspiracy." - Publishers Weekly

"Taut suspense...swiftly paced plot...an atmospheric backdrop...The strength of this debut will have many readers clamoring for more. Devore displays a sure hand in a tight, eminently readable thriller certain to draw a substantial following." - Kirkus Reviews

"An engaging mystery story...Michael is no James Bond, but Devore portrays him with enough panache to keep the pages turning...The fascination is in the telling of how (the essential) conflicts play out. It is an enjoyable read." - ForeWord Clarion Review

"Timely...enough plot twists to keep the reader turning the pages...For anyone who's had enough of action lawyers, make way for a new breed of hero." - BlueInk Review
