Technology professionals turn their skills to criminality for the heist of a lifetime
Following on from his ultra noir trilogy - Small Crimes, Pariah and Killer - is Outsourced, Zeltserman's most commercial book to date. A classic heist thriller pitched somewhere between Ocean's Eleven and Dog Day Afternoon, it's the story of a group of software engineers who lose their jobs due to an industry push to outsourcing. Desperate, and seeing their middle class lives crumbling apart, they come up with a brilliant plan to use their computing skills to rob a bank. But not even a systems analyst can foresee every eventuality, so the group falls foul of the Russian Mafia.
Movie rights have already been sold to Outsourced. The film will be produced by the team behind the hugely successful Resident Evil films.
