About the book:
Captain Dean Watters keeps these parts of his life in laser-like focus. So when hackers threaten both his mission and his team, Dean's Special Forces training kicks into high gear. Ten military super-secure computers are missing-which if opened, would give America's enemies a blueprint of US military intelligence. Failing to stop the hackers isn't an option.
Zahrah Zarrick is a missionary teacher to Afghan children in Mazar-e Sharif. She's also a target. Her expertise in quantum cryptology makes her an unwitting pawn in the hackers' deadly game. They're coming for her, and Dean and his team must stop them.
Before the team can get to Zahrah, she disappears. Now Dean must race to rescue her and stop the hackers from unleashing terror on millions across the globe. But to do so, Dean will be forced to crack open the steel box around his heart-a move that might come at the highest cost.
I'm always blessed to discover a new author, especially when it is one that I discover I love! Kendig has written a fast paced military novel that grabs you on the very first page and doesn't let go until the last! Warning: Don't start this one before bed, because you won't get any sleep until you finish the book! Even if military novels aren't your "thing", they will be after reading this one!
I appreciate the sensitivity to present military personnel with which Ms Kendig writes. She includes character sketches and a glossary of military terms that make reading the book a bit easier. In the end, through Dean's character, Kendig pays great honor to our military men and women and the many times grave sacrifices they make to serve our country. I look forward to the books to follow in this series!
