Software by the Kilo by Larry Ketchersid
I had so much fun reading this book. The characters were quirky and well developed. The story was well researched and wonderfully written. You should read Software by the Kilo.
Kenny and Jason start up software businesses. The first one was an amazing success. The next, not so much. But now they have a fabulous product that will revolutionize the industry . . . if they can find someone to invest in them in the wake of their recent failure.
While Jason is busy trying to chase up the funding, Kenny gets a girlfriend. A gorgeous girlfriend. A girlfriend who is also an undercover agent trying to find evidence that Kenny pulled off one of the biggest and most daring cyber-attacks of all time. And Kenny decides to go on vacation with his girlfriend, dragging Jason along.
Jason accidentally meets some Italian businessmen who make him an offer they can't refuse. And now Interpol is involved.
While the author tells this very modern story of high tech and high finance, he also tells the story of the Italian businessmen and how their bond was formed during the second world war.
Okay, I'm not going to tell you anything else. Just buy this book. I promise you will love it.
