A MAN OF INDETERMINATE VALUE, the first novel in the Jack Madson trilogy, exposes American corporate greed and shortsightedness. In a world plagued by corrupt corporations and sinister forces that prowl the global landscape, Jack Madson needs to escape his own demons. Trapped in a hate-filled marriage, a job he despises, and a mountain of debt, he’s crafted a plan. He’ll fake his own death – simultaneously winning a large insurance payout for his family and paving the way for his getaway to Mexico. There, he’ll create a new life with the money he has been amassing from illegally selling intellectual property to criminal interests in China.
But Madson’s plan goes dangerously wrong in this new thriller. The $2.5 million that he socks away in a secret Mexican bank account becomes Madson’s escape route from all that has come to symbolize his miserable life. But when he finally arrives south-of-the-border, he learns that he’s been double-crossed by his partner in crime – and his bank account is empty. Madson has no choice but to return to the States and make a last ditch effort to double his ill-begotten payoff. The hitch? He must break into the computer system at NuGen to retrieve highly valuable bio-tech secrets. As bodies pile up, Madson struggles to stay one step ahead of the laser-focused insurance claims investigator who is determined to prove that his “accidental death” is anything but. This modern day anti-hero’s choices increasingly begin to resemble those of yesteryear’s outlaws.
