Tanner Zane spent much of his college life hacking into computers. Illegal? Yes. Also very profitable. When his grandmother is left penniless as a result of a hacker attack, Tanner changes his ways, and joins the Mormon Church. His college girlfriend was Mormon, and she had set a persuasive example. But Tanner’s past comes back to haunt him when he’s kidnapped and forced to hack into a secure government server, part of a plot to steal a high-level computer device from the Los Alamos Laboratory. To ensure his cooperation, Tanner’s parents are kidnapped. Tanner, however, proves to be a clever and resourceful young man, finding ways to thwart the aims of his kidnappers. Tautly written and filled with surprises, using elements that seem to leap from today’s headlines, the story moves at breakneck pace to a suspenseful and surprising conclusion. Sharply drawn characters and relentless action make for an exciting, engrossing read. Several loose ends and unresolved plot elements promise more entries into this series. That’s very good news.
