Vertical Run by Joseph Garber

Vertical Run by Joseph Garber (1995)
This is not a new book, but it’s still a great read! I found it hard to put down, with fast-paced, nonstop action and suspense. It’s a thriller about a man trapped in a Manhattan office tower where he works. Upon his early arrival to work one day, he quickly discovers that nearly everyone he encounters, including his boss, is trying to kill him. The plot centers on his attempts to determine why these people want him dead and to do everything in his power – especially using techniques learned during his combat experiences in Vietnam – to save himself.

The main character's sense of humor and the flashbacks to his days in Vietnam really add to the appeal of this story.
