    Riveting and informative... an intriguing thriller to the very end. Does an excellent job capturing the personal and professional highs and lows of creating a startup. Great read all around. I can't wait for Version 2.0... write faster!

    What Lara Croft was to archeologists; what James Bond was to spies; Mara Winkel is to startup founders.  If you are a entrepreneur, investor, or fan of Shark Tank, this novel is for you.

  • George Eiskamp CEO at GroundMetrics Inc.

    Electrifying, smart, and accesible. It's like Michael Crichton writing a story about Steve Jobs. This is the adventure for anyone who ever dreamed of starting something in their garage.

About The Book



Mara Winkel is rock climbing, mountain biking and "studying" her way through school at the University of Colorado, Boulder. But when her best friend James asks her to partner with him to start a disruptive new software company she discovers that the world of technology startups is fraught with intrigue, adrenaline, soaring successes, and scorching failures. It turns out this is especially true when your technology threatens entrenched money-laundering cartels. Mara has to juggle mysterious investors, opaque partners, critical customers, and a team that is as brilliant as it is dysfunctional until only one question remains: win or die.
