Waxahachie, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/24/2014 -- While Science Fiction has long been a staple of the literary world, many authors see success simply by recycling the ‘same old’ concepts. Texan Joe Dacy II is bucking the trend and breaking powerful new ground by giving readers not only a high-octane and wholly-unique story, but disturbing truths about the relationship between individual citizens and the powers that be.
Dacy’s latest novel, ‘Esquelle and the Tesla Protocol’, achieves this with gusto. The narrative explores the ever-influential world of technology from the perspective of the Government and terrorists. This tumultuous soup of truth transcends fiction to leave readers questioning the cause-and-effect of the nation’s recent real-world decisions.
Meet Esquelle (Es - Cue - El´) Données, a beautiful French information technologist having a leisurely cup of coffee at her favorite cafe in Versailles twenty-five years in the future. Two terrorists, intent on kidnapping, are watching her. Two NSA agents are monitoring her every move. And no less than five national intelligences services are about to disrupt her quiet life.
And all because of her older brother Bernard, a reclusive genius of an engineer whose inventions have been deemed a threat to the national security of the United States. His quantum encryption system has already been slammed with a Secrecy Order, and now his new communications device threatens economic and political devastation. His enemies will stop at nothing to prevent him from developing his world-changing breakthrough.
And they have the means to do so. In the fields of information technology, global communications, medicine, surveillance and military hardware, technology in development today has been realized. To protect its power and its secrets, a shadowy group within the US government will bring that technology to bear as they once again invoke the Telsa Protocol against Esquelle and her brother.
The first in a developing series, this book is a high-octane, hard-science thriller: an intricate dance of cause-and-effect where the axioms of the past drive the decisions of the future in a world where knowledge is both power and peril.
“Technology is a microcosm of global success and freedom; but I’m asking readers to think about where the Government steps in, and the ‘currency’ technology can create for terrorists,” explains Dacy. “We may just be creating technology for the Government; either for them to use against us or to supress in order to exert new levels of control and oppression. Readers will discover this from the perspective of the ‘Chaos Theory’, which literally warns them to expect the unexpected.”
Continuing, “Every day is a product of the past, and I think we sometimes forget this. That’s why every business, location and agency in this book is real; I want the narrative to provoke bold thought. Of course, there’s also a nice medley of romance, irony and humor to offset the more serious elements. In all, readers will turn the last page with a refreshing new appreciation for how technology impacts the entire human experience.”
With the book’s popularity increasing, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies as soon as possible.

About the author, in his own words:
A former reporter and editor, I hold a Bachelor of Journalism degree with High Honors from The University of Texas. After about six years in journalism and eight years selling real estate, I entered the field of law enforcement and served as a patrolman and detention officer for four years.
For the next 18 years I worked in computer software training, holding various positions in the fields of sales force automation, telecom, web development and business intelligence.
At the end of 2013, I retired from the rat-race, giving me time to concentrate on my role as an author.
My life-long passion is good science-fiction! Having grown up with the greats, I am determined to become one.
I love cats, landscaping and reading good books.
