All the executives are easy going and kind people, in the same time very professional/5(12).

    The three Vancouver lawyers who have authored this book under one pseudonym have had decades of experience in dealing with criminally insane clients, but their first novel shows them to be amateur writers. The book is confusing, contrived, and, worst of all, an obvious attempt to pull out all the stops with lurid descriptions of ""palpitating entrails"" and ""scattered chunks of flesh.   The White Headhunter by Nigel Randell is a spine-tingling story of daring and survival within a globally, heartbreaking story of the cultural breakdown of an island community. The author drew his original inspiration from a genre of literature called the “Beachcomber Memoirs,” seamen’s adventure stories describing “contact” with the Solomon Islanders.

      Michael Slade's "Headhunter"--originally published in is a thrill seeker's wet dream: a dark, brooding, visceral offering of psychological suspense that also functions splendidly as a mystery, yet--with its sudden jolts of brutally graphic violence and grisly descriptions of traumatized bodies--is also unafraid to revel in the conventions of the horror genre.5/5(5).   Headhunters is narrated by the suave, secretive, deeply self-conscious business executive Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie), who is nearly as proud of his fine head of hair as he is of his trophy wife Author: Philip French.
