Overview

The Enclave, centers on Jason Carter, a young software engineer. When Jason developed Rounder, his software propagation program, he never expected it to be the center of a stealth operation. One mistyped digit leads to a series of events that change his life forever.

Hundreds of miles away, Vincent Dawson encounters life circumstances that parallel Jason's, but plunge him into a deranged spiral of misdirected revenge.

StarTeque, a firm with headquarters sequestered high in the Rockies, takes an interest in Jason's creation. Once inside the elite Enclave, Jason finds himself monitoring suspicious government projects. Liz Thompson, head of StarTeque engineering, teams with Jason to spread his software creation into a secret government agency. Their covert mission extends the reach of an unofficial Congressional oversight committee.

During the investigation of unauthorized activity, the pair discovers tracking software focused on members of Congress and their families. After two Congressional family deaths in less than a week, Jason and Liz put their software prowess to work. The story takes the reader inside their high tech world as they match wits with the killer. In this unlikely atmosphere, Jason experiences his first interest in romance since his wife's death.

Meet the Author

After I co-authored two editions of a telephony software book that sold over 22,000 copies in two languages, I turned to fiction for a creative outlet. Utilizing my career in software development and management, I wrote this novel to entertain and spark the imagination with a story of suspense and intrigue driven by technology.

    Enclave will keep you riveted to the end.

    Enclave, by John Alexander, is a thrill-a-page novel providing nonstop action and a frenetic pace, keeping readers on their toes. Alexander opens the book with an action scene, stirring conflict to reel in the reader-reminiscent of any Dan Brown novel. This action-packed book flies at break-neck speed and is a must read for all mystery and suspense aficionados.

    The story revolves around the development and use of technology. The protagonist of Enclave is Jason Carter, a software engineer who constructs Rounder, which is software designed to protect the company and its lab from probing eyes. Liz Johnson is the head of engineering at StarTeque, a research firm in the Rockies, while Mr. G is the founder of the firm. The antagonist of the novel, Vincent Dawson, is a revenge-seeking software engineer working for a secret government agency.

    While Vincent is inherently bad, the loss of his wife also contributes to his becoming a despicable man. The intrigue factor enters when readers learn that Jason Carter has also lost his wife, but concentrates his efforts on achievement and success through hard work. When Carter inadvertently mistypes a digit in Rounders, his search ends at the research firm, StarTeque. Not surprisingly, the firm, which desires to be isolated from intruders, and operates rather secretively, accuses Carter of deliberate intrusion.

    While this initially leads to conflict between Liz Johnson and Carter, they slowly grow to trust each other. Their trusting relationship gradually turns intimate, and ultimately the two join forces to vanquish Vincent Dawson. The story peaks when the granddaughter of a U.S. Congresswoman is kidnapped. Johnson and Carter embark on a frantic chase to locate Dawson.

    Overall, Enclave is an entertaining read that offers thought provoking thematic elements such as pain, death, resurgence, resolve, and romance. It captures the fascinating dynamic between two characters who suffer similar tragedies, while contrasting Carter's resolve to regroup and return his life to normal, and Dawson's unyielding desire for destruction and revenge. To be sure, Enclave will keep you riveted to the end.
