This was an awesome read! The writer of "Offshored" has a tremendous talent in introducing the reader to the characters, providing pertinent information without making the paragraph(s) seem as though you are reading a fact sheet. The plot is fascinating; especially during a time were many companies are being taken out of the country and moved to low wage countries. I found myself unable to stop reading...

...DC Downey has pulled from history and the headlines to create a complex, action-packed thriller with plenty of suspense, plot twists, great detective work, conspiracies, and even a hint of romance.
Three days after Nikola Tesla contacted the U.S. War Department about his invention that would end World War II, he was found dead in the New Yorker Hotel. That same day, the Alien Property Custodian seized Tesla's technical papers, and the FBI classified them as Top Secret. During the Cold War, his research papers mysteriously disappeared from a government program code-named "Project Nick" at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The project focused on developing the particle beam weapon that allegedly would have ended WWII.
Over seventy years later, one of Tesla's inventions destroys a TILAC Corporation plant. The FBI assigns fledgling agent Savannah Kinlaw to interrogate TILAC's disgruntled employees whose jobs have been offshored. When a young boy dies, reminding Savannah of her murdered brother, she immerses herself into the offshored investigation.
Savannah has never shed a tear, and smiling and laughing are learned responses. She was born with autistic spectrum disorder, and if it weren't for her older sister flagging Savannah's peculiar behavior at an early age, she'd live in a special needs' home. However, her ASD left her with savant visual-spatial acuity, giving her the unique ability to visualize crime scenes and solve complex puzzles. Now, she must curb her social awkwardness to link the resurgence of Tesla's technologies to the terrorists before more innocent lives are lost.
