My Review:The Quantum Breach by Denver Acey
I enjoyed The Quantum Breach. The technology of the book was over my head but made the book feel real and very believable. Especially with all the cyber stealing of countries. The suspense was very good you were not sure how it would all play out.
I liked Tanner and a few other characters in the book. The kidnappers were good characters too. At times they were really likeable.
It did mention LDS beliefs very simple and not preachy. Mainly as one motive for Tanner's change and why a relationship had broken up.
The setting was the Albuquerque, New Mexico area. It made me want to visit some of the places.
Tanner Zane used to be a computer hacker and made a fortune. Then he realized what he had done and changed. He gave his money to charity. Now he has been at a company that after working for seven years you get two months off paid vacation. He is taking his parents on a trip paying for everything. He is single.
The plot somehow a gang new he was a computer hacker and kidnapped him and his parents. They were kept at different locations. If Tanner did not steel technology from a high security place they would kill his parents. He would be working 18 hour days. He was in a isolated area. Had a ankle monitoring bracelet with GPS on it. He always had two guards around him at a time and someone who understood what he was doing with computer.
You never knew if Tanner could break into the top secret site. If they would kill his parents or him. Good drama, lots of action, smart thinking. Good clean read.
I would read another book by Denver Acey again. Especially with Tanner in it.
I think I need to look at what is on my computer and what information is out on the internet about me. I know an awful lot is.
This is a good book if you want a smart, action, spy book novel that is real life like.
I was given this ebook to read for the purpose of giving a honest review of it from Cedar Fort.
Few people understand the terrifying, yet realistic threat of computer hacking like Denver Acey. Denver has spent his entire professional career in the information technology industry where he has witnessed and even thwarted actual cybercrime. From his top-secret job working for the US government to securing computer networks at Fortune 500 companies, Denver is personally familiar with hackers and their unscrupulous activities.
But over the years, Denver has become increasingly frustrated with Hollywood's inaccurate portrayal of cybercrime. Hackers are more intelligent and more sophisticated than simple teenagers, who guzzle down Mountain Dew while playing WOW (World of Warcraft). Cybercrime is a billion-dollar business that encompasses organized crime and foreign governments. For these elite hackers, the fruits of success are iconic trademarks, innovative patents, or government secrets.
Because of his unique background, Denver decided to pen a book to dispel hacking myths while highlighting the tenacity of cybercriminals. Utilizing actual hacking concepts and scenarios he experienced firsthand, Denver illustrates -- in a simple way for even the non-techie to understand -- how vulnerable we all are to cybercrime.
Denver can be followed on Facebook, Twitter, or emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org. He'd love to hear your comments or questions on his books.
