Money. Greed. Power.
Welcome to Silicon Valley, a place where wealth is counted not in millions, but in billions of dollars; where the ambition is to own not a fleet of cars, but a hangar full of planes; and where the Forbes 400 list serves as a de facto Social Register.
This is the world so vividly captured in this insightful debut novel. Written by the ultimate Silicon Valley insiders, Michael C. Perkins and Celia NÃºÃ±ez, A Cool Billion gives readers a glimpse of the exclusive and frenetic world of the decade's new power players.
A Cool Billion is a classic tale of avarice and ego, with a 21st century twist: An ambitious journalist, Steven Cavanaugh, pushes a friend to dig up confidential information about the high tech startup where she works. She agrees, and turns up dead the next day. Enraged and guilt-ridden, Steven pursues the man he suspects killed her—until he stumbles onto a billion-dollar conspiracy. Now the race is on: the conspirators are after Steven, and his only hope for survival is to elude them long enough to unravel their identities.
