Product Description

From Booklist

Prolific technothrillster Pineiro addresses the vulnerability of present cybernetic systems, large and small, to terrorism. Superterrorist Kulzak jiggers the controls to the gas lines in the San Antonio area, spreading death and devastation far and wide. Expert counterterrorist operative Tom Graham, cowboy FBI agent Karen Frost (hubba hubba!), and computer whiz Michael Patrick Ryan form one of those special teams that are always more effective in thrillers than in real life. They and their spear-carrying colleagues take their lumps but eventually prevail. Pineiro has always subordinated characterization to hardware and action, and he has frequently played to his readers' paranoia. That said, remember that readers with voracious appetites for fast action and hardware exist in droves, and that is how they will come for this book. Moreover, after 9/11, is any terrorist act that is physically possible too improbable to be envisioned in a novel? Roland Green

Format: Hardcover
In San Antonio, terrorists access the computer program that regulates the flow of natural gas. They dramatically increase the pressure on the system resulting in uncountable leaks into private homes and other buildings, which in turn leads to numerous explosions throughout the area. Thousands die and The Alamo City turns into a prison cemetery reminiscent of the fire bombings of World War II. More than just the United States is in a panic as much of the developed world wonders if their home will be part of the next assault.
Two decades of experience as a counterterrorist fails to prepare Tom Graham for the type and magnitude of this attack. He knows the old rules are gone and he needs outside the societal crypt type thinkers and a software Einstein to prevent future rapes via the American cyber-infrastructure. Tom mobilizes FBI Special Agent Karen Frost and obtains the services of computer guru Michael Patrick Ryan. The war is engaged as the threesome supported by the Federal Counter Cyberterrorism Team try to follow back the hacking path that led to the San Antonio wasteland.
As President Bush claimed Bin Laden the threat after 9/11 and Hussein as the threat in 2002, R.J. Pineiro provides a cautionary tale that describes the seemingly real threat is through cyberspace. The theme of CYBERTERROR is protection to the computer-managed infrastructure is weak and subject to hacking. Though the characters serve more as good guys vs. bad guys stereotypes, this action-packed thriller will haunt the audience with its message of no escape for the innocent if the cyber weaknesses of our support systems is not fixed yesterday.

good guys,Tom Graham,Michael Ryan,and Karen Frost.Kulzak begins the book by leveling San Antonio due to a gas leak caused by computer interference by Kulzak.Kulzak is trying to obtain four computer passwords that would give him control over the nuclear launch codes.During the course of this book Kulzak causes wide scale tragedy in Melbourne,Florida,Austin,New Orleans, Los Angeles and finally San Francisco.The three agents combat the efforts of Kulzak all over the country.They battle him in the cyberworld and every place that he attempts to strike.This book
is another winner from R.J. Pineiro.I enjoyed this book and you will too.

Format: Hardcover
Good plot and a fast moving storyline that is sure to provide terrorists with plenty of new targets to think about. An equal mix of adrenaline and testosterone that feels like a season script for the TV show "24" - or maybe a Bruce Willis miniseries.

The writing is solid but the author has the annoying habit of referring to the September 11 / World Trade Center attacks so many times (nearly every other page in the first 50 pages - and much more towards the end), that this reader got tired of it. It is as if he keeps doing a George W. Bush impression-repeating Sept. 11 as a Mantra, trying unsuccessfully to push emotional buttons without reason-and looking stupid because of it.

Not my favorite book by Peneiro, but a good solid read with lots of action and suspense.
