Bigbro.Comby David A. Kraft
BigBro.com is a story of high-level corporate greed. Jack Knox is Computer Security Director of ICCR, the world's largest computer service company, a multi-billion dollar operation that virtually controls the world wide financial health of thousands of corporations. When profits dropped and growth rate sagged, ICCR, through its ruthless CEO, Martin Strange, mercilessly cut costs to satisfy Wall Street.
Knox vigorously opposed the policy. He warned top management of the dangers ahead and was driven underground to fight for his beliefs. He used the only weapon at his disposal: control of ICCR's vast network of clients. He found himself alone, pitted against the enormous power of the corporation, and soon against the whole country. Cornered, he resorted to financial blackmail. He anonymously threatened ICCR using the pseudonym of BigBro. Immediately his whole world fell apart as he was pulled into a web of intrigue, violence and notoriety.
Using the power of the Internet, he hacked into client company files and brought the financial world to its knees. Knox became Public Enemy Number One, sought by the police, FBI, and the murderous agents of the savage Martin Strange. BigBro.com adeptly merges truth and fiction in one of the most enthralling cyber-thrillers of the year.
