There are two types of people: those who have been hacked and know it, and those who have been hacked and don't know it.
Former Naval Intelligence Officer turned secret operative Jake Pendleton finds himself in a pulse-pounding race to stop a cyber-terrorist from releasing a string of the most heinous cyber-crimes the world has ever seen. Crimes that could render the world's advanced technology useless.
Jake teams with his partner, Francesca Catanzaro, to track down their only lead, a white-hat hacker in Italy known only as The Jew. A man who might hold the key to stop a group of black-hat hackers from causing worldwide chaos - tag named Disruption.
After a search of the hacker's flat in Rome turns up empty, Jake and Francesca follow the clues - a trail of dead bodies that leads them across Europe. Along the way, Jake discovers a possible link between recent hacks and a Malaysian airliner that mysteriously disappeared.
In the final adrenaline-charged moments before Disruption, Jake and Francesca find themselves in a high-voltage race to stop these cyber terrorists from unleashing destruction against their sworn mortal enemy.

I really enjoyed the first three books in this series (Savanna Project, The Toy Maker & Breach of Power). It's been a few years and I was beginning to wonder if there was even going to be a book #4. YEAH!
This is such a good book. Jake Pendleton is a combination of a few characters out there today. Ex navy, ex CIA now working for a private contractor who contracts for the CIA.
He's tall, fit and can shoot and fight along with his female partner who may be more dangerous than he is.
This book deals with computer hackers, both good and bad and it appears that the bad guys are winning. That is until our heroes arrive on the scene.
These books don't have to be read in order but I think you get more out of them if you do.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
In this remarkable novel author Chuck Barrett makes a compelling case that cyber attacks have the potential to be used to cause disruption and death on a scale that makes them weapons of mass destruction. Disruption is a political/espionage thriller in Chuck Barrett's Jake Pendleton series. The series started with The Savannah Project when ex-navy SEAL Pendleton was an inspector for the National Transportation safety Board. By the current novel, #4 in the series, he has joined and and left the CIA and moved on to a private CIA contractor. He is partnered with an Italian lady named Francesca. This novel has lots of action and suspense. Scott Brick, the best at his craft, narrates. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

The story is overall entertaining, but at times predictable. I felt that the characters were one dimensional and that the ending was rushed and sorta contrived.
