Beware the intern! Instead of the corporate killer instinct, the nondescript young person with perfect coffee making skills may have the killer instinct of the corpse-making kind. Twenty-five-year-old John Lago is just such an intern, and this is his last assignment before retiring. Shadow John and absorb his years of knowledge in the assassination business by learing John's rules of engagement and his life story. Help him uncover the correct executive - out of three potential victims - who is to be killed and along the way, discover whether or not you have what it takes to become an elite assassin. This intriguing premise will not only appeal to readers who like covert operation and conflicted protagonits, but also to those who crave career options where perfection in coffee brewing is paramount.— From Adrean Darce Brent
“I have a twisted sense of humor and so does Shane Kuhn, the author of this darkly funny novel of office work and assassination - something like what you might get if Joshua Ferris and Josh Bazell ever collaborated. It's full of misdirection, red herrings, and characters so layered with secret identities and hidden agendas that even they may not know the truth. If you learn nothing else from this exciting, exhilarating debut, take this lesson to heart: If the intern offers to make you coffee, just say 'No, thank you.'”

“The Intern's Handbook is Tarantino funny and as tense as a Mexican standoff.
Shane Kuhn has written a movie lover’s thriller that’s as entertaining as it is smart.”
-Andrew Pyper, bestselling author of The Demonologist
