Trial by Fire: Book Two of the Silicon War Trilogy by James J Catanich
Sorry, this product is no longer available to order


What started out as a favor has now turned into a nightmare of lies, slander, and yellow journalism. Watch as this David and Goliath battle unfolds as the result of the Silicon War between Intel and National where industrial espionage blurs the line with military espionage. When Semiconductor engineer Robert Contie speaks out to help a friend accused of Industrial espionage, he is also arrested for Theft of Trade Secrets as an attempt to stop him from speaking out. Watch as Contie navigates the land mines set out for him by the President of a Silicon Valley Corporation and the Silicon Valley's outdated legal system. Being blacklisted and divorced, he moves away to get out of the line of fire. However, as the personnel vendetta between him and his ex-boss heats up, this living hell follows him back to Southern California. As the long arm of Corporate America reaches into the legal system, Contie is forced to become his own attorney and go head to head with the Valley's top Intellectual Property ADA. However behind the scenes, the KGB is also watching and becomes aware of Contie's true potential. Slowly they begin the recruitment process. There is only one question still unanswered, will someone come to save him first. "You only have power over someone as long as you don't take everything away from him. However, when you robbed him of everything, he's no longer under your power -- he is free with nothing to lose."
