Something doesn't feel right. When one of his colleagues is found dead on what should have been their night of triumph, Dylan is determined to find out what happened. But asking questions plunges him into a web of digital deceit and betrayal that will shake everything he thought he knew…
"I believe with time he will be called the John Grisham of the murderous technology novels. This is an excellent beginning to, what I hope is, a long writing career for Mr. Waite." —Literary R & R
"Terminal Value is to the corporate world what John Grisham’sThe Firm is to lawyering: a taut, fast, relentless thriller. A most impressive debut novel." —Jim Champy, co-author of Reengineering the Corporation and author of Outsmart!

Plenty of plot twists keep the reader engaged to the very end. It compares (quite favorably) to Stieg Larrson's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and is reminiscent of other well-know authors of this genre: Grisham, Chricton, Balducci, Patterson. Once I started this book I could not put it down. An excellent effort by a new author. Here's hoping that more is coming!

If you’re into corporate espionage, murder mysteries, and mayhem, then this novel is for you. What was supposed to be the merger of a lifetime for Dylan Johnson, complete with a huge payout, ends in murder, deceit, and lie after lie, leaving Mantric Technology in the hot-seat and losing money faster than it ever gained. Filled with many intricate characters, Waite rolls out his story focusing on the upside of mergers and buyouts, eventually turning the coin and showing the downside, as we’ve all seen in recent years as large robust companies crumble from the inside out. Though I’m not really a technology guru, I was able to mostly follow the high tech world in which our characters reside, and I enjoyed much of the story, however, certain points were a bit unbelievable for me, such as the lack of police presence and investigation into the murder of Dylan’s friend and colleague. I also have to wonder exactly how much one duo would be able to uncover on their own in a huge company like Mantric, but then again, I’m not in a huge corporate business and, having never worked with a corporation like Mantric, I’m also not worthy of making a call concerning validity. In my personal world, it seemed a bit strange, but certainly not too farfetched, and I enjoyed the story overall, but think those with more knowledge of the inner workings of corporations, buyouts, and technology would enjoy this more than I.Was this review helpful?

I have read many thrillers in my life, and "Terminal Value" is one of the best I have ever read. It is a gripping tale that immediately grabs your attention and holds it through more twists and turns than you can imagine until its stunning conclusion. This is a most impressive debut novel from Thomas Waite and compares favorably with other authors such as Grisham, Crichton, Balducci, Patterson and other accomplished writers. I highly recommend this novel and I hope Waite is planning a sequel.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
