A hacker known as G0d_of_Internet has hijacked millions of computers in order to disrupt water treatment centers in various cities in the United States such as Boston, Los Angeles, and Dallas. He is doing the bidding of an Islamic jihadist group. Cyber attacks are real. Hackers are real. I think that is why this book is so relevant and why it will resonate with many people.

One of the people leading up the people trying to stop the terrorists attack is Julianna. She is in a troubled marriage to cybersecurity guru Mahaz Al-Dossari. They have two teenagers, one of which has a medical condition that could be made worse by the hackers attempts to shut down vital necessities such as the water supply and electricity. She is highly invested in stopping the hacker and wonders why her own husband does not get more involved.

While attempting to stop the hacker, she is also dealing with her distant husband, her son’s medical condition, and her fears her husband will take their children and leave the country if she files for divorce. She is the most likeable character in the book.

I enjoyed this book but I figured out who the culprit was fairly early on. I wish there would have been a couple more twists and turns.
