Dataset, Inc. is a multinational software company, the leader in its particular niche market — but something is wrong. The development of the next generation of Windows™-based software is badly behind schedule, and the company’s competitive position is in jeopardy. The company’s owner, suspecting that the delays are deliberate, bugs the office of the Chief Executive Officer. A boardroom rift follows and a deadly, high-stakes international struggle ensues for mastery of the software business. Meanwhile Jim Thornton, a mid-level manager in Dataset, Inc., is thrust into prominence by the resignation of his senior colleagues, and becomes the company’s Regional Manager for the US Gulf Coast. He tries to stabilize the situation, but things continue to deteriorate rapidly. Soon Jim is battling to save the business and protect his own job and those of his colleagues — and perhaps also his life. Dataset, Inc. is a story of loyalty, greed and betrayal set in the cutthroat world of the contemporary software industry.
