The Golden Gate
It is the near future, 2019 San Francisco; if anything, technology is more invasive in our everyday lives. One night, reclusive technology billionaire Manuel Colibri, CEO of Cardinal Technology, is blown off the Golden Gate bridge and into the water. What seems like a lone wolf terrorist attack soon turns out to be something more complex, and infinitely more deadly, that could possibly affect the future direction of the world. Ben Shepard, an Army veteran working as an assistant to the Director of Homeland Security, and Kate Boyle, a struggling journalist trying to find her calling, work together to find out what really happened to Manuel Colibri and, more importantly, who he was exactly.
Like many BAEN books, there is a lot of action and excitement, but actual character dialogue and development leaves a bit to be desired. I am not saying this is a bad book; it is just average with the potential to be a great and true meditation on technology in modern life. What we get instead are glimpses of that with stilted and at times wooden dialogue.
