Daniel Reid was a brilliant and humble rocket scientist. However, due to his top secret clearance and job, during his working years he was unable to share any specifics of his experience or work programs with his loved ones.
It wasn’t until after he had retired and decided to write a fictional book he called ECubed that his family and friends could finally start to get a glimpse into his complex world and begin to understand and comprehend his true brilliance and career accomplishments. He did not publish this book while he was still alive.
But after his passing in 2021 due to complications from Parkinson’s Disease, his family post-humously self-published E-Cubed to help share their patriarch’s world with others.
It was tragic to witness how this dreaded disease could slowly but surely steal the mind and life of such a brilliant and caring man and part of his legacy will be in helping others that are experiencing the same difficult circumstances.
This will be part of his legacy, and all proceeds from E-Cubed will go towards the fight against Parkinson’s Disease in hopes of one day finding a cure.
About The Book
Step back in time and inside the world of the Cold War and Space Race between the United States and the Soviet Union, a world filled with spies, deception, technology, and suspense.
CIA Agent Fred Daniels and his team are on the brink of a major breakthrough that would give America an insurmountable advantage in the Cold War: the ability to directly inject vast amounts of information into their agents’ brains.
But when the first test subject of Daniels’ E-Cubed program – Electronic Experience Enhancement – goes mad, he finds himself the subject of an official inquiry that could ruin his career and shut down the program.
Then the Soviets launch a satellite that will give it supremacy of the space above Earth. The CIA’s foolproof plan for destroying it fails, suggesting there’s a mole who’s sabotaged it and the E-Cubed program.
Fred Daniels realizes that he has no choice – to save his career, his program, and his country, he’ll have to use E-Cubed on himself to determine who is the mole.
If there is one…
If you like adventure books that have mystery to them, this is for you. It felt like this book took place during the end of the Cold War and was very scientific. Think Jason Bourne before Jason Bourne was even born. All of the details in this book were very amazing, especially the scientific items on launching satellites! A great fun read that you will enjoy!
