About this title

Synopsis:

Hackoff.com provides a ringside seat to the fast paced battles when entrepreneurs cross Wall Street. Like a chart of NASDAQ, this mystery is a wild ride.

From the Author:

People who’ve read the online edition of hackoff.com ask me how much of it is true.

I was the founder and CEO of a company that went public during the first Internet bubble. I did watch our stock inexplicably soar and tumble. I was amazed and amused to be a participant at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. And 9/11 changed me as it changed so many other people.

But hackoff.com is not autobiography. It starts with a dead CEO and I’m still alive to tell the story. There never was a company called hackoff.com; you never could trade HOFC stock. As far as I know, the hacks in the book never happened in real life (although you can never be sure). Other than historical characters and the people identified in the excellent report of the 9/11 Commission, the people in the book are figments of my imagination.

I wrote hackoff.com as a novel because fiction allows me to leave out the dull parts and exaggerate what I found interesting. It’s in the form of an historical murder mystery both because I like to read historical murder mysteries and because the form allows me to make the already fading fabric of those strange times part of the plot.

This is a story told more to amuse and entertain than to inform. As in the tales of retired sea captains, some of the monsters are real; some just things which might have gone bump in the dark.

-Tom Evslin
