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.

Always nice to get a book with over 300 pages, esp. With great characters. Loved this series with JAKE & others. Chuck Barret is a good author and I enjoyed the adventures mixed with today's issues.

This book has everything I love starting with cyberwar/terrorism. The plot revolves around a potential cyber attack on the world. You can tell that Barrett did his research here since the entire plot seemed incredibly plausible. I work for a technology firm and all of the details and nuances that he included were just perfect for the type of story and attack he was talking about. The narration for Disruption was done by Scott Brick who is a veteran in the audiobook narration field. Brick does an amazing job with this book — helping to move it’s already fast pace even faster. Brick takes a great book and makes it greater. It also had a lot of international travel and intrigue. The main characters Jake Pendleton and Francesca Catanzaro travels to different places trying to piece together the different clues and data they were able to parse with help from their team. The different places that played a part in Disruption really made the book interesting and fun to read. The story itself was very good. There is honestly something for anyone in this book. Cyber Attacks, Love, Intrigue, International Travel, and some sinister plot-lines that I won’t ruin in this review. Overall, Disruption was awesome. It was a blast to read from beginning to end and I had fun reading it. It’s one of those books where it could go one way or the other. I hoped that I was going to like it, and I was right. I’m really glad that I picked this up — and now, I’ll be looking for more books like this from Chuck Barrett.

OMG - so plausible this cyber terrorism, action packed thriller this proved to be! Although this is the fourth book in this series, it is the first book I've read by this author and I have to hope it won't be the last - he had me enthralled right from the start in this real page turner of a thrilling, suspense filled, adventure. I believe it works well as a standalone though it has intrigued and entertained me so I want to read more by this author. There are several intertwining threads woven together to create a tapestry of events where you can't see the whole picture until the end. It uses some actual events to give real credibility to the story. It starts with the hijacking of a Malaysian airline and moves on to cyber terrorism of a very frightening kind. As Jake Pendleton and his partner, Francesca Catanzaro, attempt to track down the perpetrators and prevent the total breakdown of cyber networks controlling everything from transport to communication and weapons throughout the world, there are other dangers threatening them and others dear to them. With current news items of hackers breaching security on international domains this seems an even more realistic series of scenarios. It is a modern day saga with James Bond type elements, terrorists from around the globe, competitive secret services, double crossing, danger and murder in this riveting story, with a little romance, too. I can't wait to read the earlier books in this series and anything further by this author in future. I requested, and was gifted, a copy of this book, without obligation.

Loved this book! It takes a basic premise: that everyone has been hacked and is divided by those that know it and those that don't know it. From that premise, the author has created a complex thriller spanning continents and surrounding the ultimate hack. If you enjoy thrillers, you will love this book. The author has created descriptions of the various locals that make you feel as though you're there. He has then blended in a great deal of relevant religious history and customs and mixed with political espionage and one county's goal to exterminate an entire nation. This is a sobering glimpse into evil. Yes, it is fiction, but the actual motivations of the antagonists are very real. This is a must read for fans of the genre. The author is on my must read authors' list and this novel demonstrates why he is on that list.
