Geek Mafia

by Rick Dakan

This book is a literary disaster. It lacks plot, interest, character development, cleverness, intrigue and intelligent writing. The first three-quarters of the book are filled with a monotonous drone of uninteresting events and information. After that, a few slightly less uninteresting events occur. The "hero" of the story is a loser that remains a loser and the "heroine" is predictable and unoriginal. Little effort is made to develop these character's basic attributes. The relationship that develops between the two characters is mostly unbelievable and boring, to say the least.

As our author of the day, Barnes reveals why she picked Silicon Valley as the backdrop, her inspiration behind writing a biomedical thriller and how she went for ride-alongs with the San Jose Police Department.
