Critic reviews

"Carries the reader triumphantly from one climax to the next. Taut, tight, suspenseful." (Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author of The Charlemagne Pursuit and The Paris Vendetta)
"Smasher swings seamlessly from the cutthroat maneuverings of Silicon Valley to the equally competitive world of particle physics, and yet Raffel never forgets that this is a story about people. A smart, humane, compelling read." (Marcus Sakey, award-winning author of The Blade Itself, At the City's Edge, and Good People)
"Take a taut roller-coaster ride behind Silicon Valley's doors. Hold on and prepare to stay up all night." (Cara Black, best-selling author of the Aime Leduc series)

Just as Good as the First Book!

I also read Dot Dead by Keith Raffel. These are both Silicon Valley mystery stories. I enjoyed both very much. They were well written, good mysteries. The characters were likeable and interacted well. I wish there were more of these books written! Paul Boehmer does an excellent job in bringing the characters and story to life. If you enjoy mysteries, you'll like this book.
