Ruthless cyberhackers seize a US nuclear submarine, training its most powerful weapon on a target so unusual, yet so vulnerable, that a successful strike could change the face of the earth for millions of years. With the world held hostage, former NSA operative Lana Elkins must join forces with a mysterious computer mastermind—who might be working with the enemy—to avert this unprecedented Armageddon. Intrigue, power, and blackmail force Lana to fight on all fronts—land, sea, air, and in cyberspace—to prevent the worst catastrophe in human history.
The author of Lethal Code returns with a new geopolitical thriller that combines cyberterror, environmental devastation, and unhinged ambition.
About the Author
Thomas Waite is a bestselling author of cyberthrillers. His debut novel, Terminal Value, was critically praised and reached #1 at Amazon. One reviewer wrote, “I believe with time he will be called the John Grisham of the murderous technology novels. This is an excellent beginning to, what I hope is, a long writing career for Mr. Waite.” His second novel, Lethal Code, is widely acclaimed, most notably by Hank Phillippi Ryan, the Agatha, Anthony, and Mary Higgins Clark Award–winning author of Truth Be Told: “Taut, tense, and provocative, this frighteningly knowing cyberthriller will keep you turning pages—not only to devour the fast-paced fiction, but to worry about how much is terrifyingly true.” Trident Code is the second novel in Waite’s Lana Elkins Thriller series. Waite is the board director of, and an advisor to, a number of technology companies. His nonfiction work has appeared in the New York Times and the Harvard Business Review. He lives in Boston.
