Christian Garrett has it all…until he doesn’t.

A successful, billionaire CEO, Chris lives a storied life in Silicon Valley. When his company fails, he loses both the job he loves and his vast wealth. Consumed by failure, he returns to his childhood home of Vail, Colorado to pick up the pieces of his shattered life. Just when he thinks things can’t get any worse, he is accused of the heinous murder of another famous tech billionaire, the CEO of a popular social media platform.

Chris enlists the help of his long-time friend and retired CIA operative, Jack Wood, to find the real killer. Faced with threats at every turn, and deadly reminders about the danger of their mission, they ultimately uncover the bizarre motive behind the murder, but the mastermind remains hidden. Chris and Jack must use their wits, their relationships, and their technological acumen to catch the elusive killer, clear Chris's name, and maybe, just maybe, restore a little of everything he lost.

A face-paced techno thriller, SnowCapped will put you on a rollercoaster ride from Silicon Valley to the peaks of Colorado. As Chris Garrett chases down a killer, he learns the value of family and friends over money and power.

Snowcapped is a fast, exciting and suspenseful thriller starting on page 1. The descriptions of life in Vail Valley and business dealing in Silicon Valley add to the intriguing stories of murders. It’s a ‘can’t put it down’ attention grabber. MARTIN WEISBERG, SARATOGA, CA
