Disruption + Giveaway




Book Description:

There are two types of people: those who have been hacked and know it, and those who have been hacked and don’t know it.

Former Naval Intelligence Officer turned secret operative Jake Pendleton finds himself in a pulse-pounding race to stop a cyber-terrorist from releasing a string of the most heinous cyber-crimes the world has ever seen. Crimes that could render the world’s advanced technology useless.

Jake teams with his partner, Francesca Catanzaro, to track down their only lead, a white-hat hacker in Italy known only as The Jew. A man who might hold the key to stop a group of black-hat hackers from causing worldwide chaos—tag named Disruption.

After a search of the hacker’s flat in Rome turns up empty, Jake and Francesca follow the clues—a trail of dead bodies that leads them across Europe. Along the way, Jake discovers a possible link between recent hacks and a Malaysian airliner that mysteriously disappeared.

In the final adrenaline-charged moments before Disruption, Jake and Francesca find themselves in a high-voltage race to stop these cyber terrorists from unleashing destruction against their sworn mortal enemy.

My Review

This is my first introduction to this series. If you are like me then you will be happy to know that you can read this book as a stand alone novel. The working relationship between Jake and Francesca was a good one. They did work well together like puzzle pieces.

The start of this book got me hyped to continue reading. Which I did continue reading and liking what I read. Yet, about almost half way I got stalled some with this book and found myself reading it at a slower pace. There was plenty of action. Yet, I agree with another reader that it some of the events seemed unbelievable that the bad guys could so easily get away with things. It was like Jake reacted 4 steps behind. The last third of the story did pick up the pace again. Overall, this is a fine read.
