The Quantum Deception
The Quantum Deception takes you inside the NSA’s most secret and powerful computer; one that is several magnitudes more powerful than any other computing device on earth. It has discovered a security hole that lays open the complete US financial system. Tanner Stone is one of two people who know this, the other is killed, and Tanner is spared by a chance sickness. The FBI, Secret Service and local authorities are brought in to find the killer. Their persistent legwork, the quantum computer and, most especially, Tanner’s disciplined mind give him a fighting chance against a deadly foe. It also helps that he is lucky.
The author has government people working together, mostly harmoniously, for the good of the country, making rational decisions with the given information, using believable police methods, and trying to shore up very credible cyber weaknesses. The action moves very fast, the people involved are dedicated and likable. The setting is Salt Lake City and Boise; there are several references to its unique culture. I liked the book. It was fast, entertaining and informative without being verbose. It is a good peek into cyberspace and its current sentinels.
