Product Description

Product Description

Spy, counterspy, Casanova, and technological Machiavelli, Mark Price is an agent for big business's latest headache, Industrial Espionage. His exploits as he goes about exposing a monstrous conspiracy against the industrial heart of America are at once wild, hilarious, and deadly serious. Along the way he tangles with an assortment of zany characters, including a trio of engagingly odd and highly sexed charmers and a patriarchal embodiment of the American Dream, before his ingenious sleuthing culminates in a shattering climax in the best comic tradition of the Marx brothers.

More About the Author

Shepherd Mead (1914-1994) was one of those men dogged by success. At 22, the quiet Phi Beta Kappa from Washington University left his native St. Louis for New York and joined the mail room of a large corporation - as does J. Pierrepont Finch, the leading character (who is by now a sort of folk hero) in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."

Like Finch, Mead rose to the top. It was, in fact, while he was a Vice President, inhabiting a huge office with four windows, that he wrote "How to Succeed in Business." It remained 12 weeks on the best seller list and was followed by several novels on big business, one of which, "The Admen," sold more than two million copies.

In 1957, Shepherd Mead vacationed with his family in Europe and decided to remain there to live. Meanwhile, back home, Abe Burrows and Frank Loesser were concocting from "How to Succeed in Business" the Broadway musical comedy success that went on to win the Pulitzer, the New York Drama Critics, and almost every other known prize.

Like J. Pierrepont Finch, Mead's caricature of a business man, Mead became a sort of folk hero in his own right - but a folk hero with a message.
