Add to Wish List
Twenty-two-year-old Jeannie Reese is a computer wunderkind—
and the top architect of next-generation security for the
Department of Defense. Her latest brainchild is IRIN, the
most powerful surveillance technology ever developed. To
date, IRIN has remained ultraclassified and inactive. But
on the day a shocking act of terrorism strikes U.S. shores,
the presidential order comes to launch Jeannie’s creation
against the dark forces behind the attack.
Known only as Phr33k, forty-one-year-old John Fagan is a
legendary, reclusive computer hacker. For years he has
expertly hidden himself while operating freely within the
shadows of the Internet’s background noise. He has remained
in complete seclusion despite his infamy as the author of a
slew of massive electronic crimes — and despite his long-
ago, now eerily prophetic, scenarios of terrorist warfare
Under Jeannie’s direction, IRIN gathers and analyzes
endless data — and unearths Phr33k. If she is to stop the
next stage of a terror campaign clearly begun years before,
Jeannie will have to find the überhacker; but that is only
the beginning. For she soon discovers that Phr33k is being
held by the leader of a vast terrorist network, who now
plans to use this unique genius to conceive and deliver his
final, fatal blow: a devastating nationwide wave of
For his part, Phr33k is used to working alone. But all that
will have to change. He has a new challenge, one unlike any
he’s faced before: how to provide Jeannie Reese with one
outrageous, impossible shot to short-circuit the perfect,
unstoppable scheme he so masterfully — and so unwillingly —
helped to create.
