Richard Wanderer, who wrote, "The Holiday Party (A Tale of a Corporate Takeover" http://www.theholidayparty-ataleofacorporatetakeover.com, states, "I am celebrating the second anniversary of the second edition of my fictional suspense novel. It deals with the situation that too many people in this country confront all too often. They have been hardworking employees, helped their employers build a very profitable business and, suddenly, for a multitude of reasons beyond their control, their company is taken over by another organization. For many employees who staked their loyalty and their livelihoods on the success of their company this will obviously be a very traumatic experience."

Critics have favorably responded to Wanderer's novel. Kirkus Reviews calls it, "A sharply observed saga of workplace tyranny"; San Francisco Book Review, "Page-turner"; Midwest Book Review, "Highly recommended"; Indie Reader, "Suspenseful"; Bookviews by Alan Caruba, "Leaps off its pages"; Cynthia Brian of World Talk Radio, "This book is so well written and its frightening in its accuracy and its realism and ferocity."

In Wanderer's fictional suspense novel "The Holiday Party (A Tale of a Corporate Takeover)", a huge, for-profit only media conglomerate takes over a family-owned national magazine which was run in an employee-friendly manner. The conglomerate comes and institutes a Draconian thrift regime. It fires loyal employees of the takeover magazine for little or no cause (mostly because in the eyes of the takeover conglomerate they made too much money). Then it exerts pressure on the rest of its employees to achieve unrealistic sales goals. One of the characters in his novel, by his example, shows the reader how one may handle this type of situation if they are caught in it. He captures his readers' attention right from the start: Beginning his tale with a raging holiday snow storm in Manhattan; a lead character in the novel racing through it to get to a Wicca coven meeting; then the author carries the readers across the continent into an elegant business Christmas Party in Los Angeles.

Richard Wanderer's Background for Writing His Novel:
