I had fun reading this book. And not just because one of the main characters stumbles on an idea that would have made Nikola Tesla’s ears ring. Thomas Waite’s debut novel introduces us to the techno-thriller. Someone dies in his prologue – we don’t know who or by whom, or even whether the murderer or murdered is male or female. But we do know that it has something to do with the acquisition of a high-tech mobile computing firm started by four young friends, and the big conglomerate that wants them. The elation of becoming rich overnight soon gives way to suspicion, of each other and of the shady characters that seem to emerge from every corner of the new firm.
Waite’s story builds as you get into the book, expanding the intrigue as Dylan and his partners struggle to discover how their company has become a pawn to both greed and murder. The tension builds as we gain insights into the world of high-tech corporations about to go public. As the recent Facebook IPO shows, going public isn’t always as innocent and above-board as it seems. Waite brings his many years of business expertise into the story, and the reader is all that much better for it. I really got into the story and couldn’t put the book down. Try this book. You will like it.
