О какой науке антропологии может идти речь, если ей неизвестно даже то, что homo sapiens это биологический вид разделенный на подвиды? И если ни один подвид нигде не описан? Были попытки в истории, но факт остаётся фактом – отсутствует каталог человеческой популяции, разделенный, как полагается, по подвидам, родам и семействам. И получается, что…

As the tech world threatens to slide into one of its regular bust cycles, Validator CEO Alison Prue decides to play a high-tech, high-risk game of chicken. While her faint-hearted competitors are hitting the brakes, Prue punches the accelerator at Validator in hopes of gaining market share—and profits.

The new strategy soon leads several of Validator’s senior executives to move beyond cutting corners to actual criminal conspiracy. Their plan puts particular strain on the company factory in China, where a young girl has left behind her country village and watched her dreams come true beyond anything she could imagine… until everything changes.

As Validator races towards the fate its executives have brought about, it may take the intervention of even more powerful forces to save the company.

Praise for the Silicon Valley Quartet:

“Entertaining, informative, and filled with an insider’s knowledge of where the corporate bodies are buried (or should be).” —  Ron Hansen, author,  The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and A Wild Surge of Guilty Passion

“Mike Malone captures the drama and the romance of Silicon Valley as only he could. His characters, while fictional, feel as if they walked right out of Sand Hill Road.” — Jeff Skoll, eBay founding president; chairman of Participant Media

“Malone has a grip on how Silicon Valley works that’s tighter than anyone I know. He manages to poke fun at the hyper-competitive valley without reducing its characters to cartoonish caricatures.” —Mike Cassidy, San Jose Mercury News
