REVIEW: Chasing the Dime

A computer genius is on the verge of hooking a major financial backer for his nanotechnology firm when a strange coincidence — the new phone number he’s issued when he and his wife split turns out to have belonged to a now-missing high-rent call girl — threatens everything he’s worked so hard to achieve. This book never clicked for me. Part of it may be that I am pretty much a science idiot, and there is a lot of scientific babble slowing down the advancement of the plot. But the main reason was that I simply did not find it believable that such a smart guy, with everything on the line professionally, would allow himself to be distracted by a weird amateur-detective turn on behalf of a woman he had never met.
