Book 1 of The Uncommon Series, the bestselling tech startup thriller trilogy.
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 drug 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.
"Insanely cool... a gripping roller coaster ride through the world of tech entrepreneurship. Tears you out of your seat and into a brand new genre, the startup thriller. Watch out, it will hijack your free time through to the last word. More, please?"
-Brad Feld, Managing Director at Foundry Group, founder at Techstars
"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."
-Dr. Sean Wise, Professor of Entrepreneurship at Ryerson University, Director at Dobson Micro-Financing Seed Venture Fund
"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."
-George Eiskamp, CEO at GroundMetrics Inc.
