FTC: I received a free copy of this book from iRead in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.
Disruption by Chuck Barrett was a book that in theory could actually happen in today’s world. I am reading more and more books like this and it is turning out that I am not the biggest fan of them. Which is strange because I am usually a huge fan of books like this, but I had a hard time staying focused. I am sure that has to do with the fact that parts of this book take place on the internet and I found that I would get bored during those times. I will say though that I feel in love with Jake right from the start and I know that I will be reading more books with him in them because I can’t get enough of him. If you love books that have hackers in them, then I would check this one out. If you have read it what did you think of it?
About The Book
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.
