Events zip by in a flurry of well-timed action, dialogue, and narrative flow.... Three Weeks Less a Day...conveys a surprising celebration of survival.

As the old adage goes, where there’s a will, there’s a way, and this book offers great hope that a little willpower and perseverance can help anyone achieve great things.” - Foreword Clarion Reviews
Gary – I found your book highly entertaining with very believable story lines. It is fast paced, deeply researched on subjects and people that really engage the reader. Not often do I read a book in one sitting but the plots were fascinating. The many locations, and business challenges that you experienced during your business career and personal life played an important role in the book. A trace of Wilbur Smith, John Grisham, and even Gomeshi come through the pages. I can hardly wait for your second book! -- Bill Blight
Amazon Top Customer Reviews 5.0 out of 5 starsSpectacular read By Peter S. on November 5, 2016 Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase The story captures you from the first page on. McGugan writes like a true insider and keeps the tension and suspension high to the last page. Excellent book. The only open questions are: What happened to HK? When does the next book come out?
5.0 out of 5 starsAn exceptional novel! By Amazon Customer on November 26, 2016 Format: Paperback An exceptional book that gets your attention right from the start. It puts you at the highest levels of a large corporation's intrigue, politics, and the corporate planing of executive level decisions. This, combined with the accuracy of the lifestyle, and the international flavour of the business, make it an intriguing read, involving you in the upper echelons of corporate life. It would certainly make an interesting, dramatic movie! I love the detail the author has put in, it clearly reflects the global business experiences he has in order to accuratly create this captivating novel.
4.0 out of 5 starsLooking forward to the next novel... By Lynne Eitel on December 30, 2016 Format: Paperback I found it difficult at first to truly "get" the characters & follow the high intensity business strategies but ultimately finished the novel in full binge mode. (Last experienced this same pattern when reading "All The Light We Cannot See") I never imagined that a North American grocery empire could be so fascinating, let alone involve international espionage & politics. The author's descriptions of the multiple locales involved were especially captivating. And the last paragraph has me looking forward to a sequel!
