This is well worth the short time it takes to read.

It's entertaining the way the story unfolds and then spirals out of control. It's funny without ever being too silly and it's dark without becoming too creepy. I don't laugh out loud much when I read, but this gave me a few chuckles!

After reading John Dolan’s novel, ‘Everyone Burns’, and thoroughly enjoying it, I was curious to see what else he’d written, so I picked up this little short and gave it a read. It has the same brand of dark humour as ‘Everyone Burns’, but the back-and-forth email style gives a unique touch of its own. I was a bit confused about Jim Fosse’s motives, but all in all I quite enjoyed this. It’s quirky, twisted, and fun. If you’re a fan of John Dolan’s work, or even if you want a nice quick read, check it out.

Great story. Funny and distrubing. A quick read that will keep you entertained from front to back. Make sure to follow up with John Dolan's book "Everyone Burns" on Amazon. Truly an amazing book.

A short, sharp and entertaining story that made me laugh out loud.

What it didn't have in quantity it made up for in quality.

I highly recommend this if you are looking for an amusing read and are short on time.

Review by: Kayla Stonor on Jan. 19, 2013 :
This was hilarious. It's a cleverly constructed story told through written media (email, letter, articles). A maligned dealmaker cares nothing for the legalities of life when conducting business in cities where corporate rules of business simply don't apply, so long as he gets paid his expenses. I felt for the poor expenses manager, but had this crazy sense of Jim's increasing frustration. However, there is a slight twist in the tale: Jim seems determined to have the last word. A good, quick read!

This review is of a free copy.

The protagonist, Jim Fosse is not unlike some men I've met in corporate life. What makes this story truly humorous is his candor and irreverent behavior.

An enjoyable introduction to Mr. Dolan's writing.
