   In Seattle's very creative and highly sought after Wright and Wong advertising agency, three high level executives are unhappy. Finance Officer/Controller Mark Johnson, Corporate Creative Director Pamela Wiley, and Vice President of Client Services Brad Teeters realize they made CEO Wong a multimillionaire, but they remain stuck in a middle class lifestyle and income.

    The trio unites to issue an ultimatum to Wong, who has not even shown up at the office in months. Unless he sells them the company, they will quit and start a new company. At least half the present clients of Wright and Wong would come with them. Wong agrees with the stipulation that the threesome comes with him on a retreat first. They soon find themselves struggling to survive, as none of them know what is an exercise and what is a death trap.

   Larry Brooks has written an exciting thriller as the reader, like the group, never knows what is deadly and what is an exercise. In PRESSURE POINT, ignoring reality could mean death with no one trusting anyone adding to the individual's stress. This fascinating novel is similar to The Deadly Game, but Mr. Brooks keeps it fresh because reality is so blurred.
