Publisher's Summary

By the time anyone realizes what's happening, it is too late. A dark network of hackers has infiltrated the computers of the US military, unleashing chaos across the globe. US missiles strike the wrong targets. Defense systems fail. Power grids shut down. Within hours, America's enemies move in. Russian tanks plow through northern Europe. Iranian troops invade Iraq. North Korea destroys Seoul and fires missiles at Japan.

Phase 1 of ComWar is complete.

Enter Jake Mahegan and his team of highly trained operatives. Their mission is to locate the nerve center of ComWar - a.k.a. Computer Optimized Warfare - and to shut down the operation through any means necessary. Mahegan knows it's a virtual suicide mission. There are three ComWar headquarters, each hidden deep underground in Russia, Iran, and North Korea. Splitting up the team is Mahegan's only chance to prevent the next wave of cyber attacks. But even that won't stop the sleeper cell agents - here in the United States....

When Phase 2 ends, World War III begins.

Well worth reading. Great narration & unique story

Well worth reading. Very good narration and very good story. A bit far fetched on technical but not a great distraction. I read it in one sitting.

Jake turns into a marvel comic book<br />

Jake was so much more interesting as a grey listed former Delta. now he is at the Pinnacle of power with Secretary of defense taking orders from him shot stabbed bean bagged yet still able to parachute to find his love Cassie. just a little bit too comic book for me. Even Reacher is more beliveable.

I really hate to do this...

but I have to say that I was very disappointed. I get that action stories suspended reality and defy belief, but this was way too far into left field. I enjoyed the previous books and had hoped for at least the same level of enjoyment from this. Sadly not the case. Rushed, very choppy, and kinda ridiculous. I stopped twice and was going to return it but decided to suck it up and finish it. Probably should have stopped. It was made worse as the narrator THOUGHT HE COULD ADD DRAMATIC EFFECT by yelling or REALLY hyping it up, which failed badly and only gave me a headache. The dialogue was very poor between the one dimensional characters and I’m just left very disappointed. I’m pretty much never very critical about a book, and I feel bad leaving a negative review, but feedback like this will hopefully help the author and narrator, as well as the listeners, to have a better listen next time.

Is Jake becoming "Dirk Pitt 2.0" ??

I've read all the Jake Mehegan adventures and will read all others Tony Tata writes... but Tata has Jake morphing into a version of Clive Cussler's superhero Dirk Pitt. From Jake The Ultimate Soldier to Jake SuperHero.

Still a darn good story... and should be read in chronological order.
