Ann Bridges presents Silicon Valley drama within the global context of today’s Cold War, defined by how governments monitor worldwide financial transactions to maintain an edge in political posturing and defense technology. Bridges’ insider perspective is rich with authenticity and nails current-day issues in this first novel of a new Silicon Valley series.

Tech guru Eric Coleman is about to embark on an IPO for SDS, the company he founded with funding and support from the U.S. Defense Department.

Lynn Baker is the struggling public relations consultant hired by Coleman to grease the wheels of the IPO syndicate, derailed immediately with allegations of a bug in SDS software.

The Chinese government, represented by a variety of nefarious parties, have plans of their own for SDS’s proprietary, top-secret technology.

As Coleman and Baker fight to maintain an offensive, the international intrigue hastens and clashes with the greed of the Wall Street handlers, in step with the growing romantic attraction between Lynn and Eric.

Also available wherever books and eBook are sold, and in libraries.
