Format: Mass Market Paperback
Security Breach is an incredibly fast-moving, action-packed thriller that picks up on major headline issues seen through the eyes of its heroine, Kat Polinski. It's a must-read for anyone interested about media manipulation, government intrusion into personal liberty and the world's scramble for energy. Kat, who works for an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, is ordered to break into a foreign embassy in Washington D.C. She finds the staff murdered and has to shoot her way out. Soon after, she learns that her sister has been murdered in England. The two incidents are, of course, connected.

Amid nail-biting scenes, as Kat goes on the hunt for her sister's killer, Hawksley also gives us scenes of poignant reflection, as we learn about the tragedy's of Kat's past and what drives her to keep going. Hawksley is talented, too, at drawing other characters in the book, particularly the plucky Liz Luxton who suffers from cerebral palsy and has skills that Kat needs if she is to win.

Hawksley is a foreign correspondent who has obviously used his first-hand experience to create a clever picture of a near-future world. The Washington Post has even compared Security Breach to George Orwell's 1984, although Kat's edge-of-the-seat action scenes might be more comparable to Ian Fleming.

This is the outstanding achievement of the book. Hawksley has done a superb job in weaving high-octane action and a personal murder mystery into a chilling thriller about global greed and ambition.
