"A sexy, darkly comic thriller with cinematic flourishes... Explosively violent and psychologically wily the way a good thriller should be."-- "New York Daily News"
"Black humor and surprise twists distinguish Kuhn's highly entertaining debut, which puts a fresh spin on the theme of the hardened criminal planning one last job. . . . Not least of the charms of this likable and energetic, if amoral, character are the amusing swipes he takes at other killers in fiction and film."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"Kuhn's debut is a prime example of dark and mordant humor in the midst of a fast-moving, suspenseful, action-packed ride. Those who like Dexter will love John Lago."-- "Booklist"
"A propulsive, well-written black comedy. . . . Believable dialogue, a whip smart and cynical central character, clever reversals and an entertaining amount of bone-crunching violence help wrap up this nasty package with a pretty little bow. An entertaining, ferociously violent romp about a morally bankrupt killer trying to find his way home."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Just the kind of book we love to read. . . . On our short list for best debut of the year."-- ""
"The Intern's Handbook is Tarantino funny and as tense as a Mexican standoff.
Shane Kuhn has written a movie lover's thriller that's as entertaining as it is smart."--Andrew Pyper, bestselling author of The Demonologist
"Being bad is seldom this good. Mercilessly entertaining."--Christopher Brookmyre, bestselling author of Where the Bodies Are Buried
"Dark, assured and utterly thrilling. Makes Grosse Pointe Blank look like Goodbye Mr. Chips."--John Niven, bestselling author of Kill Your Friends and Straight White Male
"All of the testosterone-bloated wisdom of Tucker Max mixed with the satire of American Psycho."-- "Entertainment Weekly"
"A serious guilty pleasure."-- "Seattle Times"
"The Intern's Handbook is Dexter meets Office Space--the blackest and goriest office comedy you could imagine, with an intern-slash-assassin in the starring role. Shane Kuhn's debut thriller crackles with dark humor, pyrotechnic action scenes and twists you'll never see coming. Just like the intern who's getting ready to snuff you out."--Lisa Lutz, New York Times bestselling author of The Spellman Files
