Bit Flip: A Novel

By Mike Trigg

“As much a compelling narrative as it is a critical analysis of contemporary capitalism, this story worries over the coming future, in which technology could take over much of what people used to do. This helps to make Bit Flip an engrossing novel that satirizes the pretensions of tech bros and billionaires.”

—Foreword Clarion Reviews, 5/5 stars


“Mike Trigg’s novel Bit Flip is exceptionally well-written, with a satisfying balance of action, intrigue, back story, characterization, and description. He weaves together several compelling story elements, some of them technical in nature, with ease and the manner in which he wraps up the narrative is both concise and provocative.”

—IndieReader, 5/5 stars


Bit Flip is a fantastic page-turner from start to finish. Readers will be rooting for Sam as every decision he makes pushes him down further into the rabbit hole.”

The Manhattan Book Review, 5/5 stars


“In Bit Flip, Trigg aims some wickedly smart satire at the dark beating heart of Silicon Valley, and exposes a lot of moral gray areas along the way. This is the kind of book that’ll make you very afraid—and very angry—about the win-at-all-costs ethos at the core of our self-righteous tech culture.”

—Rob Hart, author of The Warehouse and The Paradox Hotel


“Trigg has worked magic here, combining elements of Citizen Kane and Silicon Valley into a readable bullet of a book. This is a razor-sharp satire with a huge heart.”

—Joshua Mohr, author of All This Life and Damascus


“Mike Trigg turns Silicon Valley upside down in a bitingly funny, sharply observant tale of dark corporate intrigue lurking beneath dazzling California sunshine. With vivid storytelling and propulsive narrative, Bit Flip grabs you from the first page and keeps you hooked until its unforgettable end.”

—Margaret O'Mara, author of The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America


“In Bit Flip, Trigg shines a light on the often-toxic tech community and walks a fascinating tightrope, deftly mixing insider knowledge with an outlier's moral observations. Just as 1s switch to 0s and back again, Trigg's characters challenge us to examine the complicated, false binary between right and wrong.”
