Victor Selo had blown up his life. A wannabe rock star turned tech savant, he''d wagered his Silicon Valley executive position on a corporate inside straight and lost. Having security escort him out of the building was the best thing that happened to him that day. The rest left him in the hospital, broken, broke, and with no prospects. That''s when a shadowy stranger with questionable motives came with an offer: a chance to get his life back - and better - if he simply cooperates. It would require becoming invisible for a while, but he would be hiding in the spotlight, playing guitar in a Vegas cover band. Reluctantly, Victor accepts and begins an odyssey he never could have imagined. One that involves a charismatic lead singer who owns the stage but aspires to own an Elvis wedding chapel, a mesmerizing woman who can play anything on her keyboards and can really play with Victor''s head, and two specters from his old life offering competing devil''s bargains. Suddenly, multiple futures are opening up in front of Victor. All of them offer opportunity - and each comes with potentially catastrophic risk. Populated with a wide array of colorful characters, brimming with reflections on everything from love to God to the price of commitment, and backed by a great soundtrack, From Nothing is an endlessly engaging work of fiction that will resonate like your favorite song. Praise for Ken Goldstein''s novel This is Rage: "This is Rage is that rare book - a fascinating, fast-paced, really smart thriller. Part action/adventure story set in the wilds of Silicon Valley, and part insider''s exposition of some of the major inner workings of our contemporary economy and of the secrets of today''s High Tech ''Masters of the Universe'' â Ken Goldstein succeeds in making this a debut that will make your heart race - even as it gives you plenty to think about." - Naomi Wolf, author of Give Me Liberty "I worked with Ken Goldstein at Disney: and since I knew he could write, I encouraged him to do just that, to write a novel. As impressed as I always was with him as an executive, I''m equally impressed with what he accomplished with a pen (or maybe a computer)." - Michael Eisner "Ken Goldstein knows the ins and outs of Silicon Valley - the customs of the land and where the bodies are buried. I would read anything he wrote, nonfiction or fiction, set on that fascinating terrain." - Will Schwalbe, author of The End of Your Life Book Club
