|Delirious by Daniel Palmer
Author Synopsis: Charlie Giles is at the top of his game. An electronics superstar, he’s sold his startup company to a giant Boston firm, where he’s now a senior director. With his dog, Monte, at his side, Charlie is treated like a VIP everywhere he goes.
Then one day, everything in Charlie’s neatly ordered world starts to go terrifyingly wrong. His prestigious job and his inventions are wrenched away from him. His family is targeted, and his former employers are dying gruesomely, picked off one by one. Every sign, every shred of evidence, points to Charlie as a cold-blooded killer. And soon Charlie is unable to tell whether he’s succumbed to the pressures of work and become the architect of his own destruction, or whether he’s the victim of a relentless, diabolical attack.
In a desperate struggle to save his life, Charlie races to uncover the truth, all the while realizing that nothing can be trusted—least of all his own fractured mind…
Charlie Giles lived a perfect, meticulous life. His start up company has been acquired by Solucent, a major electronics corporation. His design, Invision "cell phone, satellite radio, an ipod, TiVo, a web browser, and a voice guided GPS all rolled into a package not much bigger than a deck of playing cards" is about to become standard issue in all automobiles. Then things start to fall apart. He finds notes he'd written, but doesn't remember. Hears voices no one else can hear. He meets a woman everyone else denies exists and he is being blamed for things he hasn't done. Or did he! Is he losing his mind, following in the footsteps of his father and brother, both diagnosed schizophrenics. Or is someone deliberately trying to frame him? As his life spirals out of control, Charlie races to discover the truth and find out what part InVision has to play.
