Man Behind the Wheel

San Bernardino, CA : CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017
In this futuristic novel, technological advancements make 2067 America almost unrecognizable. Implanted personal assistant devices and automated highways are a reality, but for contracted Pursuit Specialist Rome Jasko manual driving is the most exciting part of pursuing criminals.
While investigating a case of high-tech road theft, Rome and his partner Aldo stumble into a web of greed and deceit. What they discover in this high speed game of cat-and-mouse is shocking, even to seasoned professionals. Framed for multiple offenses, Rome and Aldo soon find themselves on the run, hunted by the very professionals they once assisted.
Author Steve Rzasa weaves loyalty, intrigue, deceit, and revenge, and wraps them in a fast paced, ultramodern setting where technology is another character rather that a device. His story crosses multiple genres – spy thriller, suspense, and science fiction that takes his readers on a joy-ride. (Pun intended!)

Katie Flanagan starts off as an aimless college graduate knowing she needs to do something as her parents no longer financially support her. She is hoping her dream job is at The Waterfront Point Resort, a luxury beachfront resort in Orange County. When she finds herself instantly attracted to two very different guys in the group. Will Bogart help Katie realize he’s everything she needs? Or will she take a chance on TJ? While Katie is a part-time file clerk/secretary, she learns that the corporate office has plans to eliminate overtime for the part-time employees to keep costs down and pad their year-end bonuses. Katy Flanagan knows this is not right as many employees, including her, depend on the overtime pay to cover the costs of medical care and tuition that are covered for full-time employees. She finds her voice and pens a press release that places the hotel, and her, at the center of national coverage. When the corporate line is drawn in the sand, will she cross it?
