The Unraveling by JP Franklinn focuses on Kyle Stone, who is married to Suzette and has two kids. He runs a company, and David is his vice. While Kyle was at his favorite restaurant discussing with Jim, two gentlemen approached him and asked him to follow them to a limousine waiting outside the restaurant. He refused at first but followed them after a gun was pointed at him. Meanwhile, he discovered that Howard, Kyle's franchisee, was planning a conspiracy with his partner in Chicago, Peter, to take over Kyle's company. Kyle consulted David for advice on how to stop the conspiracy. Then he decided to explore the advice he had received from David. Will he succeed? Where were they taking Kyle to? Will he be able to salvage his company? These are questions you will get answers to when you read this engaging book.

There were a lot of lessons I learned from this book. I like the persona of Kyle. He is very sensitive and listens to the opinions of others. Persons that find themselves in such a position as Kyle are usually bossy and don't care about other people's opinions. That is not the case with Kyle; he listens to everyone, down to the cleaner of his company. Listening to people has a way of making them feel valued and important.

Also, Kyle depicted the character of a good manager. He knows how to treat his employees and his subordinates. Anytime he gives an assignment to his subordinates, he gives them the autonomy to carry it out themselves and gives an appraisal afterward. This is better than exerting so much control over an employee. This will reduce the initiative of such an employee. Despite several betrayals he got, especially from those close to him, he never stopped being good and kindhearted.

Some of the abbreviations used in the book, especially at the beginning, were not given their full meaning so that the reader could properly understand and follow the flow. For instance, an abbreviation like LZ did not prevent me from enjoying the book. This implies that there was nothing I disliked about the book. The author arranged the pace at which the story progressed so well that I was so engrossed and eager to know the outcome of the next scene.

I found only one error in this book, which shows that it was professionally edited. As a result, I will give it a rating of five out of five stars. I could not deduct any stars because I enjoy every bit of it, and there is no reason to do so. I will recommend this book to anyone interested in owning a company because they will learn the challenges and hurdles that come with it and avoid them.

This seems like an engaging corporate thriller that shows the kind of intrigue that can happen when there's a fight to take control of a company. Thank you for your great review!

This seems like a mystery with Kyle on the forefront. From Amazons description and your review it seems that Kyle is a great successful guy even though he grew up with practically nothing.

Suzette and Maryann's fighting scene was off-putting. It was embarrassing. I'm curious how Kyle handles the insecurities of his wife, Suzette that she is in trouble with girls. A lot of interesting plots and twists will entertain you in this book. Congratulations to the author on BOTD!

Thanks for your review. This sounds like a great, fast-paced read. I don't think I've read corporate thrillers before, or at least not one that I remember! I've added this to my evergrowing TBR list!

In the midst of his business operations, Kyle stumbled upon a disturbing revelation: Howard, one of his franchisees, was allegedly hatching a scheme with his business partner, Peter, based in Chicago, to forcibly take over Kyle's company. this seems like a book full or hate and betrayal. I would definitely add it to read list. Great review

In a world based on capitalism and relationships of mutual interest, this book seems to be the perfect epitome to help understanding such values and defining people's characteristics. As it is clear that certain interferences occur between many principles, such as : leadership, support, sensibility and empathy vs hostility, cynicism, envy and revenge.
The book is certainly worth reading. Well drafted Review, thank you !

I loved reading your review. Especially the fact about Kyle's sensitive and attentive character. The fact that the book is a good read for entrepreneurs who want to start or have already started a company is a bonus.

I read the first couple of chapters, but I will pass on reading this. I would recommend that the author have the book professionally edited, as I found quite a few punctuation and formatting errors, which were distracting and made the book difficult to read. Nevertheless, congrats on BOTD.
