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.
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.
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.
I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
This is the first book I’ve read in the Jake Pendleton series but it won’t be the last. It is an action-packed international thriller and once I started it, it wasn’t easy to put down. It was one of those “just one more chapter” books. Disruption uses many of today’s headlines and puts them together to make a scary story, one that could happen today. It’s about hackers and a cyber-terrorism plot of epic proportions. I know nothing about hacking but with what is going on in the world right now, the plot of Disruption seemed plausible to me, unfortunately.
There are many characters in Disruption and I had a little trouble keeping all of them straight at the beginning. I like the main characters, Jake and Francesca, who are the best at what they do. They don’t have a lot of time to track down The Jew, who they believe is the key to stopping the big day of Disruption. They may be the best, but is that good enough in this case?
I like Chuck Barrett’s writing style. He makes the characters seem real and the descriptions of the places put you right there.
I definitely recommend Disruption for anyone who likes international thrillers and I hope to read the rest of the Jake Pendleton series soon.
