Reid Frank was head of human development at the giant energy company, Xcelsion, until his Internet gambling addiction pulled him into an embezzlement scheme that cost him his career, his marriage, and his name. An ex-felon, abandoned and broke, Frank Reade is now answering phones at a call center, when a call from an old friend at Xcelsion pulls him back into the game.
Xcelsion is under siege. Merger rumors and an environmental scandal are crippling the company, but an affair between the CEO and an executive at a rival firm might destroy it. Reade is told to make the affair disappear. He needs the money. He loves the game. Then he makes the mistake of his life and falls for the woman himself.
On the run, Reade becomes lost in a double world ruled by shadow deals and murder until he discovers a pulp science fiction novel, Attack of the Sea Monkeys, about an oil company in the 1970s, that leads him to a shocking truth about Xcelsion.
By the author of The Four Stages of Cruelty—the “impossible to put down” Publishers Weekly book of the year—Gamification is a conspiracy thriller that will lead you to question everything you thought you knew about the way corporations rule our lives.
