Book Review: Trojan by David L. Wallace

By David L. Wallace
Genre: Thriller
Book Description:

Victor Walker’s sole responsibility as Sr. Manager of White House Defense Armament Systems, was to ensure America’s flagship armament servers remained up and operational, to protect against major attacks, both foreign and domestic. His performance garnered him praise for his genius from both the office of the President and the Secretary of Defense.
On the evening of August 7th, a dark cloud overshadowed his otherwise bright and shining existence. Suddenly and without warning, all flagship armament servers crashed – a complete meltdown. Star Wars, Air Force One, Doomsday Briefcase and Guidance Systems were all rendered useless. As Victor raced to ID the root cause of the disaster to avert a non-defensible strike on America, he found something didn’t pass the smell test. Indicators pointed to a rodent on the loose – to a Trojan – to a mole within America’s government that was assisting a hostile enemy.
Book Review:

Trojan is great! The writing is fluid and consistent. I was surprised to the attention of detail used in Trojan, but the detail wasn't annoying. It is consistent. I would say that Trojan is action packed, literally from the first page. The fight scenes are awesome, they were intense. I do think that the book dragged a little in the excitement department.

Trojan does have an interesting topic. I feel like military security would be hard to write if you do not have much knowledge or experience in that subject. So, I think that the author definitely has an advantage with his professional background. It made the book seem realistic to me. I love the ratio of fighting and "talking". I would give Trojan four stars!
Author bio:

Before publishing my debut novel, I served over 27 years as an information technology professional working initially for the US Navy, and then the Department of the Navy and various fortune companies. I’m a UCLA Writing Program alumnus, who writes mystery thrillers and children stories. After years of crafting and fine-tuning my story telling ability, 2016 is the year of the launch of my debut novel titled Trojan, which is based on a “what if” scenario I envisioned years ago while attending the Naval & Marine Corps Computer Science School at Quantico. My vow to my readers is to capture your imagination and keep you engaged, from the beginning of each story to its riveting conclusion.
