Smile Now, Cry Later - a mystery by Paul MacDonald

176 million people work in Corporate America.
Recent surveys show that 76% of them are "miserable".
If you are one of them, then this book is for you.

The Chuck Restic mystery series follows a sardonic HR executive who finds his purpose in life when moonlighting as a private detective.

Chuck has led a "successful" career in Human Resources for a large corporation. His main function is to keep the firm from being sued. But after twenty years of it, he realizes something is missing. He has no real purpose.

The first book in the series -- SMILE NOW, CRY LATER -- follows Chuck on his first venture outside the walls of his Los Angeles skyscraper. He begins a search for a missing colleague that will eventually lead him from the seedy underworld of Armenian mobsters to the champagne-soaked galas of the city's billionaire developers. Murder lurks at every turn.

But for the first time in his life, Chuck feels alive. And for the first time in his life, he finds his purpose.

The Chuck Restic mystery series is a fun romp that offers a fresh take on a good old-fashioned mystery. It is a hilarious send-up of corporate life that may very well lead you to also quit your day-job.
