The saga of Validator Software and its Silicon Valley executive team continues in Cost of Goods Sold, moving onto a global stage in the second book of the Silicon Valley Quartet. As the tech world threatens to slide into one of its regular bust cycles, Validator CEO Alison Prue decides to play a high-tech, high-risk game of chicken. While her faint-hearted competitors are hitting the brakes, Prue punches the accelerator at Validator in hopes of gaining market share—and profits.

The new strategy soon leads several of Validator’s senior executives to move beyond cutting corners to actual criminal conspiracy. Their plan puts particular strain on the company factory in China, where a young girl has left behind her country village and watched her dreams come true beyond anything she could imagine… until everything changes. As Validator races towards the fate its executives have brought about, it may take the intervention of even more powerful forces to save the company.
