Friday Freebie: One From Without by Jack Fuller

Congratulations to James Stolen, winner of last week’s Friday Freebie giveaway: Night Sky With Exit Wounds by Ocean Vuong.

This week’s book contest is for the new novel by Jack Fuller, One From Without. The publisher, Unbridled Books, is generously offering three copies of the book to Quivering Pen readers. Here’s more about One From Without...

A large credit reporting company sees the era of Big Data coming. Its CEO dreams of knowing so much about the people it tracks that it will be able to predict what they will do. With the data, he believes, the company will know people better than they know themselves. Meantime, his chief financial officer has come to the corporate world in order to hide in the numbers on his spreadsheets, trying to escape a dark, ambiguous experience from his past in the CIA. Suddenly a hacker breaks into the company’s consumer database and alters individual files. This threatens not only the company future but its very existence. As senior executives struggle with what to do next, they find out who they really are.

Bestselling author Scott Turow had this to say about the book: “I love One From Without. To me it’s Jack’s best book since Convergence. Jack’s experience in corporate board rooms makes this book unmatched in authenticity and the only novel I know which fully deserves the label of “corporate intrigue.” The flashback portions detailing life in the intelligence services are on the level of LeCarre. Beyond that, the writing–and detail–are often flat-out beautiful and the characterizations deep and compelling. This is a book that pulls you in from the start and propels you through the pages. A truly wonderful novel.”

For more on the author, be sure to read Finding My Novel: Jack Fuller, the Vietnam War, and the Fragments of a Book published earlier here at The Quivering Pen.
