For my novel, Trident Code, I needed a Russian villain. Putin was so yesterday, so Cold War with his pushy takeover of the Crimea. Base a character on that sweaty macho shirtless equestrian? No way. I needed a fresh, contemporary villain and I was still wresting with this when I started chapter two. That was when Oleg Dernov, or Oleg the Terrible as I thought of him, arrived on the scene. Terrible because he tried to take over the book. You think he’s pushy on the page? He was even worse in his insistence on more face time.
“Trident Code is scary good. The science and technology are as convincing as they are chilling… Thomas Waite has big ambitions—and delivers on them.” —Dale Dauten, King Features Syndicated Columnist
“Trident Code is a powerful and nerve tingling tale, and its authenticity is right up there with Tom Clancy. Waite gives us brilliant storytelling and a real winner of a book.”—Vice Admiral N.R. Thunman, U.S. Navy (retired) READ MORE PRAISE
