My Review

A captivating storyline that had me under a spell till the very end! Right from the word go it had the essence of the crime and thriller genre. The pace of the story is great and will keep you in the hunt of what new twist hides in the next page. And it made me feel as if I am watching a Hollywood movie with bomb blast and all the mayhem that has been caused. It will give a birds’ eye view with detailed description of what a emergency situation will look like and what counter measures you can take to diminish the mayhem.

The author has done an incredible job in letting the protagonist of the story Victor take full reigns and he hasn’t let him down. His technical skills and the pledge to fight for his county in adverse situations make him the real hero.

Victor task at hand as the Sr Manager of White House Armament Systems is to ensure that he is in full control to handle any circumstances that may compromise with the security of the nation both foreign and domestic.

He finds himself at odd situation when he faces real life scenario of a complete melt down as the servers get offline and caused the armament systems and all defence mechanism offline. Now he has a code in hand which can save the nation from all the mayhem but he again faces obstacles in his path of ensuring the safety of the nation. While he is kidnapped and is asked to lay down the code which can pin point the people behind the mayhem, his superiors start doubting him as the prime suspect who can be behind the ordeal.

Will he be able to gain the confidence of his peers and identify the people behind this unfortunate incident?

Find out more on what really happens and how Victor faces the dangers that linger around him.

Before publishing my debut novel, I served over 27 years as an information technology professional working initially for the US Navy, and then the Department of the Navy and various fortune companies. I'm a UCLA Writing Program alumnus, who writes mystery thrillers and children stories. After years of crafting and fine-tuning my story telling ability, 2016 is the year of the launch of my debut novel titled Trojan, which is based on a "what if" scenario I envisioned years ago while attending the Naval & Marine Corps Computer Science School at Quantico. My vow to my readers is to capture your imagination and keep you engaged, from the beginning of each story to its riveting conclusion.
