Dave Buschi is the author of THE BACK DOOR MAN, a bestselling technothriller that has also been published in French and German. His Marks and Lip series, PROPORTIONATE RESPONSE and INSIDER X, are two high-tech international espionage thrillers that could have been ripped straight from the headlines.

REALITY RECODED, a high-tech sci-fi thriller, is his latest work. Buschi lives in Milton, Georgia with his wife and boys.

The idea for INSIDER X came to me in stages. It wasn’t one thing that inspired me to write the book, but rather a cascading series of epiphany moments. I was a late arrival to Facebook and Twitter. I remember first setting up my Facebook page. At the time I thought I was the last person to be joining the “dark side”. Everyone had a Facebook page… or so I thought.

Like many who have done the Facebook thing, the beginning period can be pretty exciting. You’re friending folks you’ve lost touch with… friends from your past… from high school… college. It’s kind of a whirlwind for the first few days. You go from having two friends to twenty in an eyeblink, and it just seems to steamroll from there.

What I found funny during that first-blush period was the amount of fake friend requests I got. I would get a friend request from someone claiming to be a University of Florida grad (I went there for graduate school). Almost in every case, there’d be a picture of a very attractive girl who I definitely did not remember. And the name didn’t ring a bell.

Of course, not wanting to accidentally insult an “old friend”, who was about half my age in the photo (she must have been 3 when she went to UF), I’d check out their profile and see they had a handful of friends. None of which I knew. It quickly became clear to me this was one of my best friends, who I must have forgotten! No doubt about it… I was one of their first friend requests!

Anyway… you get the idea. Lots of chuckles. And that was just Facebook. Twitter was in a whole other league, as any who have joined Twitter can attest. I picked up a few followers that made me see just the tip of the iceberg.

I was intrigued. I researched this whole fakery thing. Wanted to see what was really happening.

Wow. Make that a double, all caps WOW.

INSIDER X, as scary as it is, is right on the mark with what it uncovers. I could share links to articles I’ve read that would blow your mind. Frightening stuff and absolutely perfect background material for a thriller.

Just a coincidence?

I WAS SHOWINGKaprekar’s constant to some friends during a dinner party. Had a napkin. Pen. Did that cool number thing that Kaprekar’s routine does. For those not familiar with Kaprekar’s constant, it is a math thing.


I wouldn’t consider myself a math guy, but have to say that math, or more specifically ‘numbers’, fascinate me. The links between numbers and the real world can be pretty cool.

“Johnny Two-cakes. As a name it didn’t quite fit him, but for some reason that’s what he was called. Man was sour and dour. All business; doom and gloom to the extent it was actually funny. World was coming to an end. US was one tick away from becoming a third-world country’s bitch. Everything was a crisis—including the fact someone had stolen his tuna sandwich.”
Dave Buschi

“Lip was in his element. Him and his languages. His linguistic abilities didn’t just stop at Pig Latin, like the rest of us. He was also pretty savvy with the computer kind. Pascal, Basic, JavaScript, those were child’s play to him. He knew the completely worthless programming languages, as well. Like IronPython, IPTSCRAE, TenCore, SystemVerilog; some of the names were so ridiculous they sounded like Klingon gibberish: “Metalua, KUKA, Nemerle…” Because you never knew when you’d need to communicate with a toaster.”
Dave Buschi

“Lofty dreams were for people with no dependents.  There was no way he would put his family at risk, chasing after stuff that might never materialize. He wasn’t going to be that guy who wasn’t there for his family.  He worked hard and his hours during the week were long, but the weekends were all family time.  He spent time with his wife and kids.”
Dave Buschi, The Back Door Man
