“Recommended for all who like thrillers set in the uncertain world of the 21st century.”
The sub’s nuclear missiles are capable of inflicting devastating damage on the environment, a fact made clear when the hijackers launch their first strike against a terribly vulnerable target. Lana enters the battleground of the 21st century, the world of computer hackers and cyber-terrorists, to locate and prevent the attackers striking again – but her task is far from easy.
Lana’s only hope is a Russian hacker who knows how and why the submarine was hijacked–and the identity of the mastermind behind the plan to alter the world. The mastermind knows he must silence the hacker – and he’s totally ruthless in his pursuit. Helped and hindered by her own family issues, Lana must somehow persuade the fugitive hacker to cooperate with her, but it means risking her own life and those of her loved ones. With time running out, can she foil the mastermind and save the Earth from a disaster that could cost the lives of billions?
In Trident Code, Thomas Waite brings us a taut psychological thriller that grips the reader’s attention and doesn’t let go until the final page. Lana Elkins is a well-rounded and believable heroine, and her opponent a truly nasty bad guy. Recommended for all who like thrillers set in the uncertain world of the 21st century.
