Virtuality

By H. L. Wegley

Description:

What would you do with innovative technology that could make you the next Bill Gates but could unravel the fabric of civilized society?
"Don't sell Virtuality. Jess can help." His brother Paul's dying words to Vince van Gordon, a struggling author who can't write happy endings. He inherits controlling interest in Virtuality, a growing high-tech company with a mysterious product the US Army classified Top Secret. Paul's last words force Vince to return home to Seattle to run Virtuality and face the girl he walked away from seven years ago. Can Vince, once again, endure being eclipsed by Paul's larger-than-life shadow, a shadow that cost him the woman he loves?
Jessica (Jess) Jamison is a genius, a beautiful, highly introverted, young woman who can count her friends on her thumbs. Seven years ago, Vince left, shattering her heart. Now Jess has a Computer Science degree and still prays her childhood soulmate will come home. If he's willing to reconcile their relationship, Jess can help Vince take the reins of Virtuality. But why is someone trying to kill Vince and her? And could Professor Scoggins be right--that, in the wrong hands, Virtuality's technology could shred the fabric of civilization, and that stopping it may literally take an act of Congress?
Virtuality is a character-driven thriller with romance about dangerous technology lurking on the near horizon--a story of love and sacrifice, illustrating that there are no shadowed, worthless people in God's economy.

Book Takeaway:

Virtuality illustrates that, when we take technology and turn it against God’s will for a moral and ordered society, we have the ability to use man's fallen nature to destroy society. Technology, barring some apocalyptic event, will continue to advance. Rather than worrying about the results of technological development, we need to focus more on the moral stature of those who control dangerous technology and the legislative safeguards required to prevent its commercialization.

Why the author wrote this book:

I wrote Virtuality to serve as a warning about a bad direction that virtual reality will likely take. And, as with any technology, we should be more worried about the moral stature of those controlling the technology than the technology itself.
