“When gut-wrenching doubt risks the life of the only love that matters to you and nuclear Armageddon, the criterion for a moral certainty, and being sure of it, is never more important.”

Rekindled romance, a WMD crisis and international secrets come together in the genre-bending new thriller by author M. K. Poe, “Silicon Seduction” (published by iUniverse).

Michael Whitaker, an international law student at Stanford, honors his father’s dying wish by committing to protect proprietary technology from dangerous factions. But that promise was made before he fell in love with Charmaine Walker, a young woman implicated in stealing cutting-edge technology.

“‘Silicon Seduction’ touches on how innocent relationships with people, governments, and authorities affected by the wondrous tech revolution present new challenges for those we love, and for those we trust—or don’t,” Poe says.

After Michael’s colleagues are murdered by a French industrial secrets broker and circuit designs are stolen from a secret facility in Jackson Hole, Wyo., avenging their deaths and finding a way to prevent mass destruction leads to the only woman he ever loved.

“The concept of a moral certainty provokes enduring questions by individuals, organizations and nations,” Poe says. “When gut-wrenching doubt risks the life of the only love that matters to you and nuclear Armageddon, the criterion for a moral certainty, and being sure of it, is never more important.”
