Posted on Amazon.com and Smashwords:
Electronic Crime in Muted Key is an international crime thriller of the highest caliber. Barry Carter, an unlikely criminal, plots an insurance scam of epic proportion. Author Nick Wastnage crafts a brilliant “winner take all” plot that brings the reader across the globe. The novel is fast-paced and delves ever deeper into the corridors of the unknown as Barry Carter struggles to stay one step ahead. With his “widow”, a jaded lover, and authorities on multiple continents pursuing him, the reader is barely left with a moment to breathe. As intellectual as such well-know crime thrillers as Ocean’s Eleven, this is a must read for anyone looking for the next big thriller.
Review by Kenneth Wayne (Oct. 8, 2011):
I was very impressed with this very well-crafted thriller. Mr. Wastnage has done a fantastic job in drawing the reader into a complex scheme conceived and executed by a complicated protagonist with several aliases and leading double lives with a wife occupying one and a girlfriend in the other, while orchestrating an elaborate network of tasks for a half dozen people to perform if they want to change their lives for the better. I don’t want to give too much of the plot away in this review. I’m sure anyone wise enough to purchase this book will be as impressed as I was at how easily the story flows in spite of the overall intricacy of the plot. The competence and control that the author shows in laying the groundwork for this story is impressive. I was absorbed with it to the end. Well done!
