Publisher's Summary

Random events at a Brazilian hydroelectric plant, Irish financial institution, and Texas winery seem connected by an insidious virus hack which attacks system vulnerabilities then vanishes without a trace. Are these all a glimpse of the new viral danger of the Ghost Code designed for devastation on a personal and industrial level? 

A new mysterious pair of cyber pirates, known only as Mephisto and Callisto, seems to be behind the plot to deliver these destructive payloads for computer domination. While their agenda appears to be just blackmail for financial gain, their true goals might be far more menacing and capricious in nature. 

In an intriguing game of digital cat and mouse with assassins from the Dark Net, the R-Group's technology experts Jacob, Petra, and Quip find themselves pitted against their most nefarious enemies to date. Stretching their considerable talents to the max, they struggle to track down the source of the Ghost Code and craft a solution that will secure global technology infrastructure. 

The award-winning authors, Breakfield and Burkey, serve up yet another captivating techno-thriller fourth novel, The Enigma Wraith, as their blend of real technology laced with travel, romance, and humor to succeed against the looming catastrophe.

Breakfield and Burkey have upped their game

The members of R-Group are faced with a crippling “Ghost Code” implemented by cyber pirates Mephisto and Callisto. A ghost code that evades detection and creates chaos and havoc everywhere it goes. Petra, Jacob, and Quip must find a way around the code and destroy it before the world suffers a financial collapse. The two evil cyber terrorists have more than just financial collapse on their mind – they want to break technology!

The R-Group finds one of their own as a victim – Juan – when his plane displays the ghost code; he loses all control waiting for the plane to break apart from its acceleration. A heart-tugging moment is shared before Juan is just gone. The team works together to thwart the evildoers and find the crash site of Juan.

Charles Breakfield and Roxanne Burkey have upped their game. This book not only kept the listener on the edge of their chair but it tugged at their hearts as well. R-Group are the superheroes without the capes and because Breakfield/Burkey have developed the characters solidly, one cannot help but feel the pain and joy of the characters.

I loved the teaser Breakfield and Burkey had at the end, you know the next book is going to be just as wildly intense filled with chaos and more evildoers! At what point do we stop trying to further technology?

Derek Shoales, the narrator for the Enigma series is excellent. He has distinct voices for each character and moves the story further through his energy. He has become the Enigma series to me. He’s perfect. His voice is soothing yet exudes appropriate emotions.

There were no issues with the production or quality of this audiobook.

What a Ride!

This book was an emotional rollercoaster! There were some very happy, very sad, and very a-ha! moments in this story. I think my favorite character in this story was Ichabod, and you'll see why if you read it. Very cool talks about coding and applications. I enjoyed the narration and all of the surprises.

Wraith very relevant and plausible

Once again the author team captures a very timely development in the industry and spins a fascinating story, a plausible what could possibly go wrong kind. Great writing, story and plot with enough realism and twists to keep me trying to undo the tech pretzel they bake. Great narration, how does he keep all those voices straight?

The suspense continues!

I enjoyed this one! The continuity of the story line - reviving characters from the 1st and 2nd volumes - adding to their persona's... The story was riveting.... Breakfield and Burkey continue to grow the franchise - and I'm loving it!! A Series well done!!

Once again brilliant!!

order to protect the world’s technology infrastructure. They are great characters! I really like them.


It’s a fast paced technological thriller that sucked me in from the start and kept me on the edge of my seat until it ended. In fact I got stuck in traffic listening to this book and was glad that I did because I had an excuse to listen for longer. It is the fourth book in the series but if you are new to it, it’s got enough detail that you can easily follow the plot without any confusion. You should check out the earlier books because they are great but you don’t have to. But they are great. There is a sense of realism to this series and this book that is great. Not too heavy in terms of the tech element of the stories. For me they hit that just right. I always think this with these books but will say it again. I can imagine something like the Ghost Code really happening and how truly awful it could be. Which is a level of empathy that gives these books a great edge.

The narrator does an excellent job of adding to the sense of tension and pace that make this book really great. Also really draws out the characters identities.

Very enjoyable!

Awesome series

By far I think this one has to be my favorite one so far out of the series. I mean hacking a car driverless car. And not to mention more of Jacob in this one. I really like his character. I got nervous because this one seemed the hardest for the tram to track down and take down. Although nothing is truly taken down I believe because somehow someway they are all connected. Again as always looking forward to the next book in the series.
