The story begins with an electrocution of a man in a bathtub, a man whose name is familiar to the coroner. Was it a murder or a suicide? Wavelength: A Novel by Angus Morrison is a current-day mystery, filled with corporate greed, international politics, and terrorist acts. Hayden Campbell, a former CIA agent, is working as a speechwriter for the sixth richest man in the world, Aaron Cannondale. Hayden has a front row seat, observing the inner workings of bringing a new technology into the global market. From the naïve inventor, to those with malicious intentions, to others caught in the cross hairs, there are many characters interwoven into an intriguing and complex web. Hayden’s goal to not become entangled in Aaron Cannondale’s world becomes increasingly harder to maintain.
One of the most striking features of Angus Morrison’s book, Wavelength: A Novel, is the timeliness of the plot. It is an authentic twenty-first century rendition of what happens when personal greed is the primary motivator. Several times, there is reference to the dot.com collapse, and this venture into the bandwidth arena has similar possibilities. Mr. Morrison presents a cast of many characters throughout the world, but with Hayden being the central figure, it is not difficult for the reader to make the necessary connections. The author skillfully knits them together, seamlessly taking the reader from scene to scene, across the continents, from corporate boardrooms to a sail in the sea. The suspense builds, and the reader is compelled to find out how it all ends – and the identity of the man in the bathtub.
