A geek-a-liscious literary experience
It’s the late ’90 and the grand-children of two Detachment 2702 members are part of an IT start-up venture in the Philippines. The discovery of a sunken WWII German submarine filled with gold leads to a set of encrypted punched cards that may contain the location of an even bigger Japanese war treasure hoard.
This genre defying novel is in fact a mashup of many stories: a WWII spy action, a harrowing death camp escape, a modern-day treasure hunt yarn, a philosophical mathematics treatise and a high-finance techno thriller. All of these narratives are tied together with a profound insight into geek culture and an unbridled glee for hyperbole of hysterical proportions.
