Crime, Fiction, Mystery/Suspense

“Wavelength” captures the two dominant threads of the first decade of the 21st century – greed and terrorism.

Wavelength takes us from the stoops of Brooklyn to the bike paths of Amsterdam, to Afghanistan, Moscow and Zurich, to the backrooms of Brussels and Frankfurt and finally to the hazy diwans of Yemen.

Dazzled by his new boss but harboring a soft spot for the agency, Hayden allows himself to be pulled back in for one more run – a run that reminds him that people aren’t what they seem, a run that reinforces his belief that greed has no sell-by date.

Several years after the dot com funeral pyre, Hayden Campbell – a former CIA operative turned speechwriter – finds himself working for the sixth richest man in the world, Aaron Cannondale. From this perch, Hayden watches as a Dutch student discovers a technology to send voice, video and data through Europe’s municipal water system. Standing in the way are European technocrats, the Russian mafia, a Swiss banker and a new breed of terrorist intent on wreaking havoc on the West.

Angus Morrison is a Pulitzer-nominated, former financial journalist for Bloomberg, and has contributed to The International Herald Tribune, The New York Observer and the Globalist. He was a speechwriter for the U.S. Secretary of State and IBM’s senior executive suite, and served as Senior Policy Advisor at the U.S. State Department. He lives with his wife and son in Paris. In college he flipped hamburgers and fixed fences in Wyoming. After graduation, he moved to Brussels where he lived in a nun’s cell in a former convent that had been converted into communal living quarters. In his free time he frequented a small Flemish pub that counted a large black Bouvier named “Zeus” as its most loyal patron. The Berlin Wall fell while Morrison was in Brussels. He hitchhiked to Budapest in 26 vehicles. The first thing he saw upon arrival in Hungary were Cold War statues torn down as the communist star was being wrenched off the parliament by a crane.
