Giveaway - Sabotage - Matt Cook

I've got a fantastic giveaway for you today - three (!) signed copies of Matt Cook's debut novel Sabotage!

What's it about? From the publisher, Forge Books:

"A cruise ship loses power in the North Atlantic. A satellite launches in the South Pacific. Professor Malcolm Clare—celebrated aviator, entrepreneur, and aerospace engineer—disappears from Stanford University and wakes up aboard an unknown jet, minutes before the aircraft plunges into the high seas.

An extortionist code-named “Viking” has seized control of a private warfare technology, pitting a U.S. defense corporation against terrorist conspirators in a bidding war. His leverage: a threat to destroy the luxury liner and its 3,000 passengers.

 Stanford doctoral student Austin Hardy, probing the disappearance of his professor, seeks out Malcolm Clare’s daughter Victoria, an icy brunette with a secret that sweeps them to Saint Petersburg. Helped by a team of graduates on campus, they must devise Trojan horses, outfox an assassin, escape murder in Bruges, and sidestep treachery in order to unravel Viking’s scheme. Failure would ensure economic Armageddon in the United States.

 Both on U.S. soil and thousands of miles away, the story roars into action at supersonic speed. Filled with an enigmatic cast of characters, Sabotage, Matt Cook’s debut novel, is a sure thrill ride for those who love the puzzles of technology, cryptology, and people."

"Matt Cook is a writer and entrepreneur based in Los Angeles. He wrote the first draft of his debut thriller novel, SABOTAGE, at nineteen. A close-up magician and former member of the Magic Castle Junior Society, he has performed in Hollywood and across the globe. For his support of the military, he was honored with the President’s Call to Service Award.

Matt created THE STARTUP STAR in 2010 with Jon Zhang. Published by the Business Association of Stanford Entrepreneurial Students, their entrepreneurial success book features advice from CEOs, founders, and venture capitalists of Silicon Valley. Matt’s first book, published when he was a sophomore, was honored by the American Authors Association with the Golden Quill Award in the business genre."

Matt’s hobbies include scuba, piano, and travel; he delights in weaving exotic locales into his stories. He now pursues an Economics doctorate at the University of Pennsylvania."
