You’ll find it on Amazon: The Expert On Everything – A Novel
Described as “Catch 22″ meets “Three Days of the Condor”, this techno thriller-with-a-dark-comedy-attitude incorporates realistic technological details in a story about the end of privacy and the consequences of transparency. Young Charlie Sanders is offered a six-figure job after only thirty seconds into a job interview and then is mistakenly handed the company’s only prototype that can erase any and all privacy in our society. Charlie engages with an ensemble cast of characters, including a VP of sales who actually hypnotizes his clients and a pompous corporate “fixer” which leads to interest from politicians who demand a demonstration of the product – which only communicates with Charlie via an earbud/microphone he wears which makes him the expert on everything and everyone’s business. However, the technology begins to have its own ideas and makes death threats against Charlie and his girlfriend unless its transportation, in the form of young Charlie Sanders, completes the orders he is given.
About the Author:
Edward David Gil lives in middle Tennessee with his wife and two boys. Further background is on Linkedin as Edward Gil. Three elements led him to wanting to become a storyteller: 1. “teachers” including Mark Twain, Scott Rosenberg, Ira Levin, Robert Heinlein and too many others; 2. a period of working at three film and television studios in Los Angeles, in creative and business capacities and then founding a technology company involved in advanced analytics; 3. the misfortune of living in “interesting times” at an inflection point in history that continues to reveal bald truths about character and twists in the geopolitical story that we all are characters in.
