About the Author : (In his own words) 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.

About the Book : A cyber thriller set in the heart of Washington DC, Trojan: The Enemy Within is full of nonstop action, suspense and mystery as one man fights to clear his name and protect his country from a hidden adversary. Inspired by his time at the Naval & Marine Corps Computer Science School in Quantico, Virginia, David L. Wallace creates a terrifyingly realistic glimpse into the future of national security, as well as a look at the staggering price of revenge. Victor Walker’s sole responsibility as Sr. Manager of White House Defense Armament Systems was to ensure America’s flagship armament servers remained up and operational to protect against major attacks, both foreign and domestic. On the evening of August 7th, a dark cloud overshadowed his otherwise bright and shining existence. Suddenly and without warning, all flagship armament servers crashed – a complete meltdown happened. Star Wars, Air Force One, Doomsday Briefcase and Guidance Systems were all rendered useless. As Victor raced to ID the root cause of the disaster to avert a non-defensible strike on America, he found something didn’t pass the smell test. Indicators pointed to a rodent on the loose – to a Trojan – to a mole within America’s government that was assisting a hostile enemy.

My Say : Trojan: The Enemy Within is a contemporary tale of suspense within a straightforward American thriller that features one man battling with the most diabolical and brilliant computer attack in his country’s history. Wallace offers a turbulent ride which is ideal for anyone who loves the tech world and a good conspiracy theory. Action-driven from the start, the plot tries to maintain the energy energy via confrontations, kidnapping, computer crashes and races against the clock.

I loved the theme of this book. A good story and if you like to read thriller then you can give this book a try. While reading the book, I kept guessing and I was trying to put all the pieces together of who was behind the attacks on America and Victor’s family. In the beginning, It really made me think of what if this could happen in real. Unfortunately, In the mid, the characters and the story started disconnecting and then it was getting nowhere. There were some promising ideas but in the end it all gone wasted. The writer could have done wonders with the storyline but it raised the expectation in the beginning and  left with little bit of disappointment in the end. It was very detail oriented story which took away all the essence of the concept but my love for reading thrillers kept me going till the end.
