'My name is Jack Whitman and I should never have had the first thing to do with her...not with what was happening at the Corporation at the time.'

So begins Colin Harrison's stunning new novel, Bodies Electric, a corporate thriller in which the dangers of sexual obsession are matched only by the perils of corporate power. In both realms, alliances shift with brutal alacrity and ruthless measure begets ruthless measure.

Jack Whitman, thirty-five, is already a top player inside the country's largest media-entertainment empire. Several years earlier, Jack's pregnant wife was killed in a senseless spasm of New York
City violence. In his grief, Jack's blind fury has become blind ambition.

Enter Dolores Salcines. One night, returning from work, Jack sees a beautiful, ravaged woman and her child sitting across from him on the subway. Against every rule of urban survival, against his proper judgment, against the dictates of his class, Jack thrusts his business card at her. Soon he rescues Dolores and her daughter from their Times Square hotel - to take them into his home.

But as Jack falls in love with Dolores and begins to learn her secret history, he finds himself caught in the middle of a corporate coup. His scheming CEO is determined to push aside the company's aged but cunning Chairman to make way for a merger with Corporation's German-Japanese counterpart. The deal will make the new company the next century's world wide media colossus.

This is a hard back and dust jacket in pretty good but not perfect 2nd hand condition - a few minor marks on outside pages
