The Worthy Negotiation by Kenneth James Allen is a psychological thriller with quite a few puzzling twists and philosophical debates to grip readers. Although James Worthy was accustomed to and trained in the most violent ways of life, he had trouble accepting his current reality. Being unceremoniously discharged from the military was the least of his worries. With nowhere to turn, he drowned his thoughts and his senses in alcohol. So, when he received a mysterious interview call from a man named Barnaby, he found himself intrigued. However, the interview turned out to be nothing like he could have ever imagined. Both the interviewers, Nathan and Barnaby, had somehow access to Worthy's every deep dark secret. And all they wanted from him was a signature on one of their contracts. Behind their sharp attires and sugar-coated promises, were Nathan and Barnaby trustworthy?

Kenneth James Allen has a unique style of storytelling. With a gruesome beginning, he sets the tone of the thriller from the start. Since the main character, James Worthy, has a military background, violence and action were expected. However, philosophical and psychological bits turned out to be surprising and gripping. The beginning might be slow, but as the story progresses, so does the pace and fascination quotient. And the question regarding the identity of Barnaby and Nathan is yet another compelling element in the plot. The Worthy Negotiation excels in the dialogue-delivery aspect as well. Kenneth James Allen infused the conversations with enough variety and flavor to stimulate readers' minds. Overall, The Worthy Negotiation by Kenneth James Allen is an enthralling thriller that will grip readers who enjoy good psychological fiction.
