Best of the Year "Seattle Times"
John Lago is a very bad guy. But he s the very best at what he does. And what he does is infiltrate top-level companies and assassinate crooked executives while disguised as an intern.
Interns are invisible. That s the secret behind HR, Inc., the elite placement agency that doubles as a network of assassins for hire who take down high-profile targets that wouldn t be able to remember an intern s name if their lives depended on it.
At the ripe old age of almost twenty-five, John Lago is already New York City s most successful hit man. He s also an intern at a prestigious Manhattan law firm, clocking eighty hours a week getting coffee, answering phones, and doing all the grunt work actual employees are too lazy to do. He was hired to assassinate one of the firm s heavily guarded partners. His internship provides the perfect cover, enabling him to gather intel and gain access to pull off a clean, untraceable hit.
Part confessional, part DIY manual, "The Intern s Handbook" chronicles John s final assignment, a twisted thrill ride in which he is pitted against the toughest and sexiest adversary he s ever faced: Alice, an FBI agent assigned to take down the same law partner he s been assigned to kill."

Review quote

""The Intern's Handbook" is "Dexter" meets "Office Space" the blackest and goriest office comedy you could imagine, with an intern-slash-assassin in the starring role. Shane Kuhn s debut thriller crackles with dark humor, pyrotechnic action scenes and twists you ll never see coming. Just like the intern who s getting ready to snuff you out."--Lisa Lutz, New York Times bestselling author of The Spellman Files"
