Internecine by David Schow @ Joe Bob Briggs

Conrad Maddox is the Vice President in charge of development for Kroeger Concepts, Ltd.

He’s an ad man who specializes in selling our dreams and desires back to us at a steep price.  On his return from a business trip, he discovers a key in his rental car.  The key belongs to a locker that contains a Halliburton-style briefcase.  The briefcase contains fake IDs, cash, a cell phone and several guns.  Conrad calls the number on the cell phone.  As they say, hilarity ensues.

David J. Schow, the Hollywood scribe who wrote Critters 3, Critters 4 and The Crow, has created a propulsive thriller filled with shoot-outs, car chases and shadowy cabals.  Imagine Don Draper from Mad Men shoved into the Seventies paranoia funhouse world of The Parallax View.  Now imagine it with jokes and observations about society that drip with cynicism and snark.
