In this new world of mergers, down-sizing, and firings, what would a distressed man do to save his job? Take a journey into the mind of a desperate white collar worker and see where his twisted imagination will take him in the hopes of saving his mediocre job. Anything short of murder is fair game for single dad Kevin O'Donnell and his "partners in crime" in THE SURVIVAL GUIDE TO SUBURBAN WARFARE.

Due to a recent corporate merger, Kevin's job as a commercial loan officer at Pittsburgh's oldest banking institution is no longer secure unless he can find a way to edge out his competition. Kevin hates his job and despises most of his co-workers but he promised his son, Mark, that he would do everything in his power to keep his job. As Kevin plots and schemes in an attempt to have his competition fired, he discovers hidden talents that may prove quite useful to his friends in the near future. Meanwhile, Kevin struggles to find balance between the demands of single parenthood and the burning desire to pursue the girl of his dreams.

Word soon spreads about Kevin's newfound skill set and he finds himself with a lucrative hobby assisting his friends with their problems. Kevin and his band of merry men take on Little League baseball, the world of finance and even national politics, until they find themselves up against their nemesis, a crooked cop with a bad attitude and a mean streak a mile wide. What happens next will make you think twice the next time you're lying on a beach sipping a margarita at an all-inclusive resort south of the border.

About the Author

Rick Grasinger lives in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with his wife, Judy, of twenty-five plus years and their two chocolate Labrador Retrievers, Coco and Roxy. Rick has spent most of his life building homes with the family business alongside his father and 4 brothers, and in recent years, his own son and various nephews.

Rick has been concocting characters and their stories in his head for years. When his two children, Erica and Matthew, went away to college, he finally found time to start putting them down on paper. Vacationing with his wife at various all-inclusive resorts over the years has provided him with the inspiration for one of the rich plot twists in THE SURVIVAL GUIDE TO SUBURBAN WARFARE.

With the help of his wife, who served as both research assistant and editor, Rick has completed his first novel. THE SURVIVAL GUIDE TO SUBURBAN WARFARE is book one of a planned three part series, with the second installment, DOES HELL HAVE ROOM FOR ONE MORE, soon to follow.
