Announcing Playing the Game, a novel by Sara Rickover

PTG front cover all capsMy new novel, Playing the Game, is now available. You can find it on as a paperback and as an ebook for Kindle and Nook.

Playing the Game is a thriller set in the middle of a corporate crisis. PlayLand Inc., a family-owned toy company, careens toward bankruptcy, while its CEO lies comatose. Maura Ramirez, head of Human Resources, battles the egos, incompetence, and backstabbing of her fellow executives as she scrambles to save the company. Meanwhile, a murderer lurks in their midst.

The book could be described as Scott Adams’s Dilbert meets Michael Crichton’s Disclosure meets Arthur Hailey’s Airport. The dialogue and settings portray real-world corporate chaos, similar to what I dealt with for more than two decades navigating business bureaucracies.
