5 Stars This is the follow up to Quantum Breach. I liked it. It is smart, full of drama, characters that I like, suspense that keeps you guessing till the end. The technology is out there. There is a race to keep the America strong and not take down the financial date of our country. I did not want to put the book down. Tanner Stone works now in Salt Lake City in a NSA with Quantum computer. A super secret fast computer. Tanner is married and expecting his first child. He was supposed to be on a flight to Washington D.C. but his wife started having labor pains so he went to the hospital with her. The plane he would have been on was shot down with a surface-to-air missile over the Salt Lake City. This has the FBI, Secret Service and NSA all working to figure out what was going on. With Chinese spies. Most of the book is set in Salt Lake Valley, UT. It is fast paced book. It is exciting to read. I would read more from Denver Acey in the future.
This is a great thriller because it's very realistic. In fact, that idea alone made it very eerie. I live in the same area where this took place and to see a plane crash not too far from me and see the market crash the way it did would be really scary. Tanner is back, in the second installment, with a new name, a new job, a new wife, and a new baby on the way. He's working at the NSA and is still as smart as ever, since he's the one who linked the plane crash that killed his co-worker and friend to a very creative computer virus. He was supposed to be on that plane and it becomes a race against time to uncover this plot and stop the virus. The author does a fantastic job of going back and forth between different parts of the story, bringing them together in a very imaginative way. I was glued to my seat and didn't want to put the book down. Like I said, it's very realistic, but is done is a very original way. I really liked the characters, even the bad guys, and found myself cheering on Tanner and his team to hurry and fix the problem. There are a lot of twists and turns that I didn't see coming, but that really added to the suspense. From what I understand, there should be at least one more in this series and I'm very excited about that! This can be read as a stand alone, but it makes more sense to have that back story by reading the first book. You can see my review of The Quantum Breach here. Content: no romance; no language; moderate violence (murders and attempted murders, intense plot situations, kidnappings, etc--nothing is graphic); mild religious elements (it's mentioned the character is LDS, but nothing is preachy). Clean for an older reader. *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. this series! In The Quantum Breach we watched Tanner get kidnapped and forced to hack into the newly developed quantum computer. Now he is fully sanctioned to use the quantum computer to thwart cyber attacks. This book opens up with a scene of a woman taking down the plane that Tanner was suppose to be on. His partner was on that plane... Why would someone want to take out these two computer specialists? Because they are THE VERY BEST at what they do! Using all of his computer skills Tanner uncovers "an ingenious Chinese computer virus" that is soon to be put into play "destroying the financial data of everyone in America." He has mere days to stop the attack. But someone is determined to stop him before he puts all the pieces together. Excerpt "The FBI Suburban was already waiting for Tanner in the parking lot. He ran up to it just as the rear passenger door opened from the inside. Tanner jumped in and closed the door before realizing the woman sitting next to him wasn’t Agent Heywood. It was Reina, dressed in a blonde wig and wearing Sara’s clothes. It took Tanner a moment to realize that he was [once again] being kidnapped." FUN TWISTS AND TURNS IN THE PLOT! A FANTASTIC THRILLER! Makes you really think about what someone could really do with a computer program!
