Product Description

Going into the Wild East to steal Russian computer hackers for the American Government & in the process discovering a horrendous experimental Cyber Weapon gave John Mac & Christian Cannon an adventure they had never counted on. Discover the real power bases of Russia, Britain & the USA. Enjoy the British Royals & Business Community, NSA, New York Mafia, the Russian GRU, the SAS & the British Secret Service like you've never seen them. This book is dedicated to John McAleese, who is the iconic SAS legend, you saw on the balcony of the Iranian Embassy. John was head of the focus group used for keeping the book as close to reality as possible, he unexpectedly died just 9 days after the book was finished. INTRO 10 years after the collapse of the old Soviet Union the Russian's are in a desperate state. Every daring entrepreneur & foreign government is out to steal what they can from the failing & now corrupted old USSR. The Russian government is desperate to protect their top scientists & secret weapons projects, desperate enough to kill. A British entrepreneur (Cannon) has been successfully stealing Russia's top most secret software developers & using them as his very own private army of computer hackers. His ventures don't pass undetected; his Russian Girlfriend sells him. In New York City works Maria, she's the stunningly beautiful daughter of a Manhattan Mafia Boss. Competing with Cannon for years Maria uses her hackers to find weaknesses in businesses & for a fee she'll offer a fix. she aims for a big defence contract by hacking illegally into the NSA's network but to her surprise discovers she's not the only unauthorised person hacked in. Maria knows she will never be able to win a bid to secure the NSA network because of her mafia boss father, so invites Cannon to front the deal. Cannon accepts on the condition that he can use his Russian team to hunt down & locate the other hackers logged into the NSA. What could possibly go wrong!

I hate to give a book a bad review but I just couldn't read this book. I gave up after about ten pages. The spelling mistakes and the basic errors in grammar disrupted the flow and drove me to distraction. So many small errors would cause a child to fail A level English(perhaps even O level). The formatting of the text is also strange, with enormous double spaced gaps between paragraphs. This spacing interrupts the reading.

Sometimes even interrupting mid-conversation. This writer is no wordsmith and he needs to find a decent editor and typesetter. I presume the book is self-published because surely a publisher would have sorted those errors and enabled the story to shine through.

Well done Chris
This is a real page turner, written in a way us non-government agents can understand.
I hope you gleaned more tales from Mac and that more of this is on the way.

Amazon deleted my last post. They can tell me sorry later. This book is worth buying and reading. I think it everyone should pick up a kindle copy of the book and check it out. As a writer myself, I don't like fake reviews, but I also don;t like witch hunts or forum police. Give the sample a read and the book a buy, it is great.

I don't want to give away the plot but let me state that one of the things that made this book so good were the characters. They are so well fleshed out that the reader can be fully invested in their outcome. The good guys have a sense of humour which I really appreciated and the bad guys made me really hate them. The ability to develop characters so well is what distinguishes the good writers from the bad. cracking , get it read it , love it!!!!
