“Washburn brings a new kind of terror."
THIS IS NOT A TEST
It begins with a computer malfunction. A 737 passenger jet drops from the sky from 34,000 feet. Then another. And another. At the same time, the unthinkable happens in our nuclear power plants. Water pumps fail. Nuclear cores melt. Untold millions could die . . .
THIS IS THE FUTURE OF TERROR
With each passing hour, orchestrated cyber attacks unleash a massive wave of death and utter destruction. Chemical plants explode. Floodgates burst open. Power grids self-destruct. From Wall Street to Washington, the fear is going viral—and the panic could lead to the total annihilation of America.
THIS IS WORLD WAR 3.0
Missiles and guns are useless. Generals and diplomats are powerless. America’s last hope lies with two specially trained FBI agents: Hank Goodnight and computer programmer Paige Randall, who must penetrate the darkest recesses of the web and infiltrate the twisted network of a faceless enemy. And dare to fight fire with fire—apocalypse be damned . . .

Fun, action packed and easy to read
Enjoyed the storyline. Was looking for a more dramatic ending, but was good.
Cyber Attack by Tim Washburn was a pretty decent book. It had a lot of heart-pounding action and the storyline was well thought out in regard to what could happen in a cyber attack. I did have trouble with some of the characters, especially the main FBI agent who had a habit of dropping the "g" in every "ing" word. It became distracting and sometimes threw me out of the story. Also, the main characters (Hank and Paige), while running around from state to state, didn't really do much to find the terrorists. I really wasn't invested much in what would happen to them. I did, however, really like the characters of Butler and Darnell who were at the Attica prison. The story was too neatly wrapped up with a rather unbelievable way on how the perpetrators were caught. Overall, the book kept my interest and I did enjoy it and the various characters and disasters of what could actually happen during an attack.
held my attention
What starts with one plane crash and Dulles Airport losing power, quickly escalates to a full-on cyber attack on the entire country. Nothing is safe... chemical plants, water supplies, the financial district, power grids, military bases, prisons...anywhere that is controlled by a wireless network can be hacked. This book terrified me, thinking how this could all really happen. It made me want to go off the grid forever. I could not put this book down. Like coming upon a horrifying accident that you just can't look away from, I think you will feel the same way. This is a must-read!
