A high-profile US based assassination was just the beginning…
Victor Walker's main responsibility as Sr. Manager of White House Defense Armament Systems, was to ensure America's flagship arsenal remain up and operational, but just days after an assassination on US soil, all flagship armament systems crashed – a complete meltdown. Star Wars, Air Force One, Doomsday Briefcase and Guidance Systems were all rendered useless.
With an attack by a foreign entity seemingly eminent, Victor found something didn't pass the smell test. Indicators pointed closer to home, to a rodent on the loose – to a Trojan with ties to the assassination who was now targeting his family. As he raced to bring the armament systems back online and keep his family safe, he uncovered clues indicating a mole deep within the government who didn’t want him to resolve the crisis, to someone he once thought he could trust.
Wallace's novel is a timely, fast-paced thriller that follows Victor Walker, senior manager of White House defense armament systems, as he faces down a terrible defense calamity -- the shutdown of all armament servers -- and searches to find the cause of the crisis. Fans of the genre will be delighted with the book's well crafted characters, excellent pacing, and plot twists.

Trojan Reader Reviews:
"This book kept me guessing, trying to put the pieces together of who was behind the attacks on America and Victor's family. It was a fast paced read for me and I enjoyed it very much. It does make you think of what if this could really happen. A good story and if you like a good thriller I recommend this book." Stacey Schneller a Goodreads Customer 4 of 5 Stars
"At first the book seemed kind of slow. I forced myself to keep reading, and am I glad I did. I for so into it that the next time I checked I found I was two thirds of the way done! That has never happened to me before, and I read a lot of books. Like all great fiction this book's a roller coaster. Get it. You'll love it." Kindle Customer 5 of 5 Stars
"This is a good read. The author writes with enthusiasm as the story unfolds at a rapid pace with the "hero" desperately trying to restore his good name, save his family and avoid pursuing killers. All the while he searches for the source(s) of a catastrophic failure in defense computer systems. A failure that exposes the nation to unimaginable dangers. This reader appreciated the hero's successive attempts to locate the cause of the failure and to identify who (among those with knowledge and access) had brought the systems down. Exciting!" Second Arrow a Amazon Customer 4 of 5 Stars
"This was one of those books that I thought I would like from the start. I did enjoy the book, but there were more than a few times that I got bogged down in the details. The main character is both believable and not, which is sort of frustrating as a reader. Yes, you want to believe that people can do extraordinary things and be amazing -- but you also want them to still feel human and real. I think that Wallace skirted that line a little too much in Trojan. The writing style was interesting and like I mentioned pretty detail oriented. It reminded me a bit of Stephen King with the attention to detail (but I haven't been able to read a King novel start to finish because I get too lost in the details). The book had a feel of the big author Thrillers with action and martial arts and a seemingly unbeatable main character. But, I think that Wallace just needs to evaluate what details are needed and what ones are there as filler. Overall, it was an enjoyable read that took me a little longer than most to finish. If you love detail oriented novels this is for you. Also, if King novels don't bore you with details and you love a good Thriller I think that you will definitely enjoy this."

"Thoroughly enjoyed your book. The fast pace and believable scenarios throughout kept me rapidly 'swiping the pages' on my tablet till the end. Your knowledge was apparent in the realistic scenes you portrayed. Thank you for the opportunity to read. Will be looking forward to your next." Barb Fowler a Barnes & Noble Customer 4 of 5 Stars
"This was a fantastic, exciting novel. I really enjoyed the drama and a glimpse into the threats to National Defense!!" Dana Gauthier a Amazon Customer 5 of 5 Stars
"The only really interesting part took place in the prologue. The rest of the book is pretty trite." Glen a Goodreads Member 2 of 5 Stars
"I love stories about a man puts it all on the line for his family. What happens to Victor, his wife Helen and their daughter Tiffany, and how they dealt with it captured my heart. The book kept me guessing, trying to figure out the puzzle of who was behind the attacks on America and Victor's family. That final answer and the possibility of it happening in real life, scared the crap out of me!!!" Amazon Customer 4 Stars
Victor, who is comparable to an extremely patriotic Jason Bourne, is an intriguing hero. David L. Wallace creates a terrifyingly realistic glimpse into the future of national security, as well as a look at the staggering price of reveng,
