The Scarab by Scott Rhine
The Scarab is a PG, first-person, near-future, Science Fiction novel inspired by Heinlein's Young Adult books and the adrenaline rush of computer games.
There are very few problems one cannot solve with a little help from friends and the proper application of high explosives.
Hemophiliac and ace mechanic Ethan Hayes had risen to the top of the computer gaming circuit as the Scarab. When he invented a device that made him rich over night, he and Mary Ann were able to enter SimCon, the simulated European road race. They were like Cinderella at the ball until he stumbled across a cyber-criminal ring. After they kidnapped Mary Ann to silence him, it's up to the Scarab to save her.
I love this book. This book is a little different than what I am used to reading but I was hooked from the beginning and just couldn't put it down. I don't think you have to be a gamer to really enjoy this book but if you are you most likely enjoy this book as much as I do.
If you want to purchase this ebook you can buy it at amazon.com or smashwords.com
I give this 4 out of 5
