It takes a genius to write a book this well written and researched and Drew Murray reached the mark!
I love (!!) both tech thrillers and crime fiction. Put them together and you have Broken Genius, the debut book by author Drew Murray. This is a thriller that kept me up all night long reading from cover to cover and that is no exaggeration.
Will Parker was a twenty something tech genius set on a meteoric course for becoming one of the most successful tech gurus in the world – and the richest. Just as he is flying to Japan to ink the deal that will launch his new “invention,” his program is inexplicably hacked and a young girl is murdered while millions watch in real time. Parker is finished. He sells his shares in his now failing company and hides in the shadows in shame. The FBI recruits him for his computer skills and thus our adventure begins. Set at a Comic-Con in Indiana (my home state, how could I not love this book? We have Gen-Con, for the record, not Comic Con) Will has been assigned a murder case to solve while searching for a missing supercomputer chip. Through his impressive technical skills and intellect, Will will attempt to out-maneuver the best of the best from all over the world.
Broken Genius is definitely a “must-read” for techies but it is a well written crime fiction novel as well. There is terrific character development, great dialogue in addition to fast paced action. I highly recommend Broken Genius and can NOT wait for Murray’s next book to hit the shelves!!
