Wednesday Wonders: OFF COURSE

This week's Wednesday Wonders features 
Off Course 
by Glen Robins

About Off Course:

Collin Cook has been running from trouble for months. In Off Course he runs straight into the very trouble he’s been trying to avoid. Since receiving a large insurance settlement stemming from the tragic accident that claimed his wife and children, Collin has been targeted by Pho Nam Penh, the nefarious cyber terrorist and owner of the insurance company. Penh wants his money back and has finally ensnared Collin. Penh applies every bit of leverage available against Collin in order to gain access to the accounts where Collin has stashed the money.

Also at stake is the information contained on Collin’s computer, which links him with his friend and security consultant, Lukas Mueller, a high-ranking, clandestine National Security Agency specialist. The mysterious Lukas uses his expertise and resources to assist Collin, who is pushed to his limits in every way. In order to stay alive, Collin must employ every survival instinct he has and follow Lukas’ guidance.

Interpol and the FBI must protect Collin’s family and friends from Penh as they continue their search for the missing Collin, still believing that he is involved with Penh’s syndicate and hope he can help them bring Penh to justice.

In order to save himself and those he loves, Collin is forced to do things he never dreamed of doing, leaving him to grapple with the long-reaching consequences.

Excerpt from Prologue:

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

June 14, 5:54 a.m. Malaysia Time; June 13, 4:54 p.m. Caribbean Time

     The room was dark. A thick cloud of cigarette smoke hung over the makeshift conference table. Eerie, bluish light fro seven laptop screens bounced off the haze. Small holes in the heavy brown curtains allowed shards of muted sunlight to pierce the gloom. No one spoke. No one dared to. Instead, each man stared intently at his computer screen, afraid to make eye contact with him. These men knew him as their fearsome leader and he wanted to keep it that way. Fear was, after all, a powerful motivator. Fear and respect.
     Pho Nam Penh stalked back and forth near the head of the table, trying to tamp down the rising anger. Maintaining control of one's emotions was absolutely paramount, especially in front of subordinates. The seven in the room squirmed under his scrutiny, unsure how to respond to his questions about their quarry. Some gazed intently at their screens, as if riveted by the data displayed there. The rest kept their eyes down to avoid drawing his ire.

     He inhaled, with great satisfaction, the scent of fear. Power was an intoxicating drub and Penh relished the control he had over these men. He loved to watch them quiver in his presence. His next goal was to make the entire Western world tremble and quake. With the money he would soon recover from Collin Cook, Penh would increase the size of his team and expand his global reach. He and his Komodos would be feared by their enemies and hailed by their allies.

About the Author:
Glen Robins first began writing shortly after graduating from Brigham Young University in 1992. He worked on a novel at night and in the early morning hours between appointments with clients. Although that book was never completed and, therefore, never published, it proved to him that he had a creative muse. That muse just needed to find its voice. In 2010, a split-second, horrifying dream caused him to contemplate what was really important to him. He used writing as catharsis, later adding in generous amounts of imagination, wanderlust, and creative plotting to build the story that became the "Off" series. "Off Kilter" was started in earnest in the summer of 2011 and, given his busy schedule as a sole proprietor, a Scoutmaster, a husband, and father of six, it was completed and published in early 2015. "Off Course," the follow-up to "Off Kilter," was published in March 2016. Proof positive that despite the pressing responsibilities life had handed him, the muse lived on inside.
