Thomas Waite is the bestselling author of the celebrated Lana Elkins thriller series. Lethal Code was declared “Taut, tense, and provocative” by Hank Phillippi Ryan, the Agatha, Anthony, and Mary Higgins Clark Award-winning author, who quickly added “…this frighteningly knowing thriller will keep you turning pages—not only to devour the fast-paced fiction, but to worry about how much is terrifyingly true.”
Trident Code followed in form. “Scary good,” according to King Features columnist Dale Dauten: “The science and technology are as convincing as they are chilling, with an original trifecta of cyber, nuclear, and environmental terrorism all worked into one wild ride of a plot.”
In his review of Unholy Code, the third novel in the series, New York Times bestselling author Vincent Zandri wrote that “Rarely does a novel pull me down and strap me in for the long, beautifully turbulent ride like Unholy Code did. This book stuns with pulse-pounding prose and a plot of terrorism and counter-terrorism that seems plucked not from today’s headlines, but from the ones that may very well come tomorrow. A real achievement.”
Waite’s first novel, Terminal Value, reached #1 at Amazon. One reviewer wrote, “Terminal Value is to the corporate world what John Grisham’s The Firm is to lawyering: a taut, fast, relentless thriller. A most impressive debut novel.” His sequel effort, Shadowed, garnered similar praise. Said another reviewer, “From the murky depths of Boston’s Charles River to the harrowing wild lands of Kenya, Waite takes readers on a ride so real they’ll feel as if they’re flying in the co-pilot’s seat!”
Waite’s nonfiction work has appeared in The New York Times, the Harvard Business Review, The Boston Globe, and The Daily Beast. He is also a board director and advisor to a number of companies and non-profit organizations. He splits his time between Sarasota and Cape Cod.
