Online security hotshot Joni McLean, working for the company that is destroying Google and Microsoft, has questions about her dream job. Like why does ASPIS seem more and more like a cult? Kevin Saganey, an ex-reporter turned company flack, knows his employer never fires anybody and nobody ever quits. They just disappear. Joni and Kevin, along with the hyperactive and impulsive Lorraine Hartman, try to crack the web of mysteries without attracting the attention of the boss who thinks he's God. In this story of friendship and faith, the three check on some facts and rumors linking ASPIS to a bizarre plot that may affect the world's geopolitical balance -- a plot they are unwillingly beta testing.

About the Author
Eric Pulsifer, a recovering journalist with more than a decade in the business and two more decades of screwing off, completed his first novel in 2013. He liked it so much that not even a line of road pylons could stop him now. While he works in several genres, his fiction leans more toward mystery/thrillers with a caffeinated mix of realism, imagination, and a bit of a dark edge. His novels Damage Control and Desert Vendetta have likable characters, realistic settings, and the obligatory dead body or three. The Beta Testers, takes an even darker apocalyptic turn in a high-tech setting. His first novel, B.I.C.* Cartel (*Butt In Chair) highlights three ridiculously-talented characters who would rather screw off than make something awesome. None of his fiction can be called autobiographical, but he taps his experiences as a casino employee, taxi driver, and family caregiver to add color to his stories. A respected musician, Eric shares his ideas in Playing Harmonica Like A Real Musician. Check out his music site at freerangeharp.com. While he lives in the Los Angeles area, he calls Charleston, South Carolina home. When not writing or playing music, he can be found on a hiking trail with his dog or tearing apart another computer and wondering how it all goes back together.
