From the award-winning author of Blood Wedding and Alex comes an unnerving workplace thriller…

Alain Delambre is a 57-year-old former HR executive, drained by four years of hopeless unemployment.

All he is offered are small, demoralizing jobs. He has reached his very lowest ebb, and can see no way out.

So when a major company finally invites him to an interview, Alain Delambre is ready to do anything, borrow money, shame his wife and his daughters and even participate in the ultimate recruitment test: a role-playing game that involves hostage-taking.

Alain Delambre commits body and soul in this struggle to regain his dignity.

But if he suddenly realised that the dice had been loaded against him from the start, his fury would be limitless.

And what began as a role-play game could quickly become a bloodbath.

Dig into the first chapter here.

Inhuman Resources is out now.
