Pressestimmen

"Taut, tense, and provocative, this frighteningly knowing cyber-thriller will keep you turning pages—not only to devour the fast-paced fiction, but to worry about how much is terrifyingly true." —Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha, Anthony, and Mary Higgins Clark award-winning author of Truth Be Told

"Lethal Code is not just an outstanding, harrowing thriller about a massive cyber attack against the United States, it is based on the very real cyber threats we face today and should serve as a wake-up call to all Americans. As the president and CEO of a cyber security firm, I can tell you that Waite has done his homework.” —Corey Thomas, President and CEO of Rapid7

Lethal Code is a compelling and well researched thriller about a major cyber attack against America. Waite’s characters bring to life the very real cyber vulnerabilities we face every day and demonstrate that America’s cyber insecurity is a serious national security issue.” —Melissa Hathaway, former cyber advisor to Presidents George W. Bush and Barack H. Obama, now President of Hathaway Global Strategies

"No matter what you do or where you live, a massive cyber attack against the United States will impact your life. That's what Waite demonstrates so convincingly in Lethal Code. He shows us the effect a hit to the country's solar plexus would have with a tale that will leave you gasping for days, whether you're a business person or a private citizen concerned about our nation's defense vulnerabilities." —David DeWalt, Chairman and CEO of the network security company FireEye

Kurzbeschreibung

America’s worst nightmare has come true: a “cyber–Pearl Harbor” attack by unknown terrorists has crippled the nation’s power grid—and brought the land of the free to its knees. As widespread panic and violence ravage the country, its ruthless captors issue their ultimatums…and vow an apocalyptic reckoning.

A defenseless nation scrambles to fight an invisible invasion. Chief among America’s last line of defense is Lana Elkins, head of a major cyber-security company—and former top NSA operative—who returns to her roots to spearhead the Agency’s frantic efforts to combat the enemy’s onslaught on its own terms. While she and her superiors take action to infiltrate a terrorist hotbed overseas, much closer to home ruthless jihadists with a nuclear bomb hijack a busload of schoolchildren—including Lana’s daughter—and race toward a rendezvous with Armageddon in America’s greatest city.

With Lethal Code, Thomas Waite raises the international techno-thriller to dangerously exciting levels—introducing a valiant new action heroine, and initiating a series that brings a harrowing new edge of realism to sensational speculative fiction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A New Thriller Must Read 22. Juli 2014
Von Judy Reveal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
With Lethal Code, Thomas Waite has joined the ranks of other thriller writers like Scott Turow, David Baldacci, Lee Child, and Michael Connelly.

Waite introduces a new, valiant action heroine, Lana Elkins, head of a major cyber-security company and former top NSA operative. With the nation’s worst nightmare coming true (what Leon Panetta once called a “cyber-Pearl Harbor”), the reader is immediately swept up in a horrific cyber war against America and Lana joins up with the Agency to combat this invisible invasion. After grabbing your attention at the very beginning, Waite never lets you go. Add the fact that this riveting novel is also entirely plausible, and it is one scary story.

Lana Elkins, and the other characters in this novel draw you into the tension and conflicts they experience. Among those characters is Emma Elkin’s, Lana’s feisty yet caring fourteen-year-old daughter; Robert Holmes, Deputy Director of the NSA and a tough man with a heart; Ruhi Mancur, a Saudi expatriate who comes under scrutiny; and Candace Anders, who ostensibly works for an Indiana congressman but has a background that proves critical to the story. All of the characters are remarkably well developed.

Lethal Code is a fast-paced thriller that tells the shocking story of a massive and anonymous cyber attack on the United States and the unforgettable men, women, and children who fight back against these cowards with codes. There are ample suspects, including elite Chinese and North Korean hacker teams, cyber jihadists and rogue Americans. But there are also plenty of heroes, including everyday citizens who risk everything they hold dear to defend themselves and their country.

Waite’s first novel, Terminal Value, became a #1 best seller. With Lethal Code, he has firmly established himself as a pre-eminent writer of thrillers. I have no doubt that Lethal Code will exceed the reader’s expectations, and I am looking forward to reading the sequel.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An enjoyable read (if you don't get hung up on technical details)... 12. August 2014
Von Thomas Duff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I went through Lethal Code by Thomas Waite while on vacation a couple weeks back. I had some plane and bus rides to get from point A to point B, and the book did a good job in passing the time. While I liked the cyber-thriller angle of the story, there was a fair amount of "suspension of belief" that was necessary to buy into the plot. There are definitely vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers, but not at the level you see here...

The story line revolves around a cyber-attack on the US that cripples nearly everything... power grids, control systems, nuclear facilities, etc. The terrorists make their initial show of force by turning off the power across the entire country for a 24-hour period, and tens of thousands die in various accidents and fires. But that's just the beginning, as they are not content to stop there. The plan is to eventually annihilate the country with their own nuclear missiles, and it looks like there is little that can be done to stop them.

But that wouldn't be much of a story if that was it. A small (and unlikely) team of security and intelligence experts (and one person who was originally fingered as the mastermind of the attacks) are put together to head to the Middle East to infiltrate the suspected organization that is running the hacking operation. They have to do what no one else has been able to pull off... find the site of the hacking attacks and stop them before America becomes a heap of radioactive rubble.

I liked the characters and the pacing of the story. I had no problems with feeling like things were dragging or that I didn't care what happened. I had more issues with the technical aspects of the story. Everything was just too perfect in terms of what the hackers could do. Things were done at a massive level with pinpoint precision, but many of the systems that were affected wouldn't have been accessible from the outside to begin with. While it might be possible to plant viruses in missile systems and such, there's no way that you could control them from an external site over the 'net. Also, knowing the technical state (or lack thereof) of many critical systems, the thought of being able to hack and control all of them at once is... non-existent.

Having said all that, it was still a fun read. Techies might get overly hung up on the details, and as such would have a hard time enjoying it for what it is. But if you're willing to let that go and "go with the flow", it's good.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Relevant Tale Not To Be Ignored 22. August 2014
Von Thomas Brennan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Excellent read on a current topic that has not been taken seriously enough by either the public or private sectors. The characters could have been developed better but nonetheless are adequate for the story's purpose. The dynamics of the book lies in the potential consequences of a cyber attack on the US and the relative ease to accomplish that feat (very little cost, manpower or time required). I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast paced, concise and interesting narrative on a subject that is both relevant but often ignored.

Von Carol Youngclaus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It's been a very long time since I've read a political thriller, but this one gripped me from Page 1. The characters were well fleshed out, the plot was tight and the action kept me turning pages "well past my bedtime." I've seen some reviews that try to poke holes in the author's research by putting way too much emphasis on small details that may or may not be provable (geeks proving how smart they are by trying to demonstrate how smart someone else isn't). Others brought their own political point of view to the review process. And my response to that is that they need to get over it ... it's FICTION! And a very well written, fun journey into the imagination. I loved it and can't wait for the next one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Awesome syory 4. September 2014
Von BobNC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a great story about what could happen in a cyber attack. It is all to real. I couldn't put it down till I got to the end. It is very well written with enough realism to be very scary of what might happen in just a few years or maybe tomorrow.
