The Manipulator is a satirical techno-noir business thriller about advertising, greed, and the out-of-control edge of a media addicted culture. It’s a darkly humorous and prophetic look at the evil twins of marketing and communications just a few years over the horizon, when master media manipulators will insidiously shape almost every aspect of our programmed and highly regulated world. Powered by an authentic perspective, The Manipulator is a fast moving, snarky action packed story that will keep you turning pages while you should be working!
The Manipulator broke into the Amazon Top 100 for Satire.
