Publisher's Summary

FBI civilian data analyst, Lacy Merrick, manages the threat of terrorism every day. But when terror strikes home, she is faced with a new reality and a new enemy.

When she crosses paths with Special Agent Will Caison after the tragic incident, Lacy begins to unravel a furtive plot to discredit not only her, but her husband and cyber security expert, Jay Merrick.

The plot, she soon discovers, balances on the tip of a deeply embedded secret that has the potential to destroy a nation. Lacy recruits Agent Caison and long-time friend and hacker, Aaron Hunter, to help her find those responsible for taking the lives of so many Americans. She must clear the cloud of suspicion around her family and reveal a truth that will inflame a fearful public.

But powerful enemies surround her every move and will employ all necessary resources to keep Lacy and everyone she loves silent forever.

Decent enough standalone

I enjoyed this enough as a standalone but don't think I'll continue with the series. I didn't find the characters particularly believable and the cyber aspects annoyed me (as someone in the field). But the plot moved at a respectable pace and the narration wasn't bad.

Very absorbing

I was thoroughly absorbed by this book. The writer has done a wonderful job on starting this series and the narrator has done a perfect job of bringing the story to life.

Wow...this book was ‘unputdownable’!!!

Lacey is an FBI analyst whose husband works with a cyber security firm. When her husband is killed in an apparent terrorist attack, Lacey feels that something is off. With the aid of FBI SA Will Canton, Lacey begins to do her own investigation, especially after attempts to discredit her dead husband and herself. Will Lacey be able to clear her name or will the bad guys win? The ending will leave you speechless!! Now I need to get the next book!! Fantastic book by a new-to-me author. Narration was on point!
