Startup

Glenn Ogura. iUniverse, $25.95 paper (486p) ISBN 978-1-4759-8855-0
On the verge of leaving Silicon Valley’s prestigious DisplayTechnik to start his own company with new industry-changing video technology, idealistic young engineer Zack Penny is confronted by ruthless CEO Allen Henley, who questions his loyalty. Before the Sun Tzu–quoting chief executive can fire him, Zach quits—but Allen vows revenge, and Zach’s associates at DisplayTechnik are soon shown the door as well. To make matters worse, Zach has been dating Henley’s daughter, Mary Anne. As Mary Anne seesaws between loyalty to her father and her affection for Zach, Allen puts a plan to destroy him into action. Although possessing all the ingredients for a successful techno thriller, Ogura’s debut suffers from improbable plot twists, underdeveloped characters, and stilted dialogue. Readers will have difficulty engaging with the characters—and those who stick around to the end will find the conclusion somewhat improbable.
