Jim Thurman never thought he'd find himself at the center of an international plot to control America's oil market. It's 1990 and the mindset of the global giant Titan Oil is that terrorism only happens overseas. Protecting its people and flagship refinery in Grainger City is the last thing to be concerned with, even though the refinery supplies the largest daily percentage of gasoline to the nation. But when a terrorist group attacks the refinery to destroy it and unleash a lethal chemical, it's up to Thurman to stop them. Thurman, former Marine and Vietnam veteran, had left police work for better pay in Titan Oil's refinery security. That was when he had a wife and son. When they died, so did his sanity. To retain what's left, he decides to leave it all behind and start a new life without the scars. He'll resign and say goodbye to the refinery, but more importantly, to his fellow veterans working in the refinery, the 'War Dogs.' His departure is delayed when a rogue black ops mercenary, Adam Murdock, attacks the refinery with a team of terrorists known as the 'Serpent and the Sword.' Their stated sympathies are with the Middle East and unless their demands are met they will destroy the refinery and release its stockpile of lethal hydrofluoric acid on the surrounding population. Yet Murdock intends to destroy the refinery regardless of the demands. That is what his employer paid him to do. The Director of the CIA knew, yet hid the attack information in hopes of elevating his agency's future power. Venezuela wants to leave OPEC and be America's primary supplier. Hiring Adam Murdock was the answer. Lay blame on the Middle East, turn America against OPEC, and Venezuela reaps the oil rewards. The Director never counted on Alexandra McCall, an agent within his agency, leaking the information to the National Security Council. With terrorists slaughtering employees and setting explosives to destroy the massive refinery, Jim Thurman realizes he must fight alone. But his blooded brothers, the War Dogs, choose to make the last stand with him-even at the cost of their lives for an ungrateful corporation... A rogue black ops agent. A ruthless terrorist group's takeover of a refinery. An intelligence agency director that knows the truth but hid the report. The global oil giant that believes everything is second to profit. A country wanting to break away from OPEC and take America's oil market with it. The potential release of a lethal chemical on a city - and one man with a handful of Vietnam veterans to make a last stand against the insanity and prevent doomsday. STEEL JUNGLE is the nightmare no one wants to consider. Reality is laid bare in this raw-nerved, fast-paced, hard-hitting thriller.

In Who the Hell Wants to Work for You? Mastering Employee Engagement, Tim Eisenhauer explains and unifies the groundbreaking employee engagement practices of America's most admired companies. It shows the role of individuals, managers, and executives in building a new kind of workplace. And it uses the collective experience of hundreds of employers through research and case examples to help you-the manager-transform your mind, your team, and your business. Everyone's talking about it, but it's as bad as it's ever been. Employee engagement has been linked to every positive business outcome: innovation, productivity, employee and customer loyalty, even stock performance. Yet workplace cynicism is so widespread that we think of it as normal. The employee engagement conversation has gone off track. Will measuring, tracking and decoding employee sentiment solve the problem? Let's see… Instead of talking to employees, we're talking about them and second-guessing their sentiments. This is not a good plan. Meanwhile, some employers have succeeded spectacularly. They get different results because they focus on: individuals, relationships, and culture. Let's talk about making all the right things come naturally. How do break-away companies reset their defaults that put inertia on their side? They've started a trend that is massive, global and irreversible. Not only do people mentally disengage from companies and bosses that don't get them, they leave in search of those that do. This is a trend you can count on … And, like any trend, you can use it to your advantage. __________ Part 1: The Individual Select, train, and motivate people to do their best work. Part 2: The Relationship Build engagement while managing direct reports. Part 3: The Culture Give executive leadership the power to create and sustain an engaged workforce. __________ "A complete reality check on employee engagement. It's an addicting read." ~ Jessica Mehring - CEO, Horizon Peak Consulting "Required reading for managers, executives, and business owners." ~ Chuck Vigeant - CEO, Clearify "Thought provoking. It's a fun read." ~ Karen L. Morkholt - HR Manager & Legal Advisor "Absolutely fantastic, easy to read, and loaded with practical information." ~ Alan Collins - Best Selling Author and Former VP of HR at Pepsi "How to get your employees to bring their A-Game to work." ~ Sammy Tovar - Former Ops Manager, Mail Boxes Etc. "The best employee engagement advice available online." ~ Sue Chacon - Arizona State University "Insightful. 100% useful." Highly recommended for manager to read." ~ John Fike - President and CEO, Lifeforce Nutraceuticals

Fault Line: Ben Treven, Book 1 , Hörbuch, Digit...

In Silicon Valley, the eccentric inventor of a new encryption application is murdered in an apparent drug deal. In Istanbul, a cynical undercover operator receives a frantic call from his estranged brother, a patent lawyer who believes he is the next victim. And on the sun-drenched slopes of Sand Hill Road, Silicon Valley's nerve center of money and technology, old family hurts sting anew as two brothers who share nothing but blood and bitterness wage a desperate battle against a faceless enemy. Alex Treven has sacrificed everything to achieve his sole ambition: making partner in his high-tech law firm. But then the inventor of a technology Alex is banking on is murdered...and the patent examiner who reviewed it dies...and Alex himself narrowly escapes an attack in his own home. Off balance, out of ideas, and running out of time, he knows the one person who can help him is the last person he'd ever ask: his brother. Ben Treven is a Military Liaison Element, an elite undercover soldier paid to "find, fix, and finish" high-value targets in America's Global War on Terror. Disenchanted with what he sees as America's culture of denial and decadence, Ben lives his detached life in the shadows because the black ops world is all he really knows - and because other than Alex, who he hasn't spoken to since their mother died, his family is long gone. But blood is thicker than water, and when he receives Alex's frantic call, Ben hurries to San Francisco to help him. Only then does Alex reveal that there's another player who knows of the technology: Sarah Hosseini, a young Iranian American lawyer who Alex has long secretly desired...and who Ben immediately distrusts. As these three radically different people struggle to identify the forces attempting to silence them, Ben and Alex are forced to examine the events that drove them apart - even as Sarah's presence, and her own secret wants, deepens the fault line between them. i 1.
