It’s all Barry Eisler’s Fault

January 7, 2009

Fault LineIn Silicon Valley, the eccentric inventor of a new encryption application is murdered in an apparent drug deal.

In Istanbul, a cynical undercover operator receives a frantic call from his estranged brother, a patent lawyer who believes he is the next victim.

And on the sun-drenched slopes of Sand Hill Road, Silicon Valley’s nerve center of money and technology, old family hurts sting anew as two brothers who share nothing but blood and bitterness wage a desperate battle against a faceless enemy.

While we couldn’t get him back to San Diego this year, Barry Eisler — author of the exceptional John Rain series of thrillers — has a new novel launching in March: Fault Line (Ballantine). As terrific a workshop leader as he is, he also makes for some informative video-watching time on his site. Check him out, along with Ken Follett and Jeffrey Deaver, at Barry’s video page.
