Bank Computer Virus Causes Global Credit Crunch – Exciting Premise of Iain Clements’ Debut Novel, "System Error: in Your Favour"
Bangkok, Thailand, May 03, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Could a bank computer virus have caused the recent global financial credit crunch? That is the novel and exciting premise of Iain Clements’ Debut Novel, “System Error: In Your Favour” which was recently released on Amazon.com.
“I wanted to offer a different perspective on the credit crunch,” says Clements about his book. “Every day I would watch the news and see different explanations being offered about what had caused the global credit crisis. A bank computer going crazy didn’t seem that far-fetched an idea so I started to develop it into this novel.”
With so many people affected by the financial crisis, the plot of the novel seems to have struck a chord with many readers. Sales of the book in both e-book and paperback formats have steadily climbed since publication. “As soon as I started reading I had to find out how it would end,” stated one Amazon purchaser, and “the story is well told, especially the bits where we hear from the computer” added another.
The novel is set at the peak of the credit crisis a few years ago. In London's Canary Wharf district computer specialist Kate Meer understands all too well the cause of the chaos. A new artificially intelligent computer system called C.A.R.L that she designed is out of her control. As events in the world continue to spin out of control and the global financial markets embark on a roller-coaster ride, Kate has to join forces with James Gold, a notorious hacker, to try and regain control of their renegade system before it’s too late.
“System error: in your favour” is available on Amazon.com now as both a paperback and e-book version.
An audio book version of the story is also scheduled for release in May 2013.
