ALAN LENNOX AND THE TEMP JOB OF DOOM by Brian Olsen

What the heck is it about? The summary from Goodreads:

Alan Lennox has been assigned yet another soul-crushing temp job, keeping him from his first loves – drinking, playing video games, and looking for a boyfriend. But Alan’s new job proves to be anything but boring when his co-workers start turning up dead. The mysterious megacorporation Amalgamated Synergy has taken a deadly interest in Alan and his three roommates, and the hapless quartet are woefully unequipped to deal with the psychotic secretaries, murderous middle managers, and villainous vice-presidents hunting them down.

Their investigation leads them deep into Amalgamated Synergy’s headquarters, but can Alan and his friends stay alive long enough to discover who – or what – waits for them on the top floor?

My rating: 3/5 stars

This is a quick read with characters interesting enough to keep me engaged. The writing is solid, with some nice action and a bit of humor, but it didn’t wow me. The sci-fi element was unique if a bit far-fetched.

Overall an okay read, but it didn’t draw me in enough to pick up the rest of the series. But the first book was free (and might still be!), so I’m not complaining.
