DISRUPTION—Jake Pendleton. Book 4

The fourth book in the Jake Pendleton series, DISRUPTION, my most recent and was my most difficult book to write. The information pertaining to the subject matter was so complex that, at times, I came close to throwing in the towel. But, the result, has earned enormous praise from the publishing industry’s major review houses.

This story is chock-full of current events and conspiracy theories. The subject matter remains ones of our most worrisome issues–hacking! I had to find the perfect balance of weaving in quite an intricate story and NOT getting too technical with details that would lost the readers’ interest. Your interest.

Check out this short synopsis:

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.

This is the latest, but likely not the last, adventure for Jake. This is also your chance to truly get to know Jake’s partner, the mysterious Francesca Catanzaro, on a much more personal level. I’m certain when you finish this thrilling adventure, you’ll be forever hooked on Jake and Francesca!

      Thank you for your kind words. If you are a big Jack Reacher fan, might I suggest my Gregg Kaplan series. The Kaplan series, BLOWN, LAST CHANCE & DEVIL IN THE WIND, is often compared to Reacher books more so than the Jake Pendleton series.

      Again, thanks for the praise
