Book Review - Storm

About the Book
STORM is a new cyber-thriller by Dave Pearson that uncovers the undisclosed worlds of computer hackers, cyberterrorists and Special Operations with exceptional realism. Pearson's first book, which required extensive research, focuses on the secret military internet, the Intelink, NSA hackers and cyberterrorism. STORM is the first book in Pearson's cyber-thriller series.

In STORM, the Intelink-the secret U.S. Intelligence Communities' intranet-is under attack by a rogue group of hackers, known as STORM. Recruiting the talent of super-hacker Dutch, STORM journeys to Compound Five, a combat training facility of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), to attack the Intelink. This is not the hack Dutch had anticipated, as he finds himself alongside the STORM hackers pitted against a special unit of Navy SEALs in a struggle to stay alive.

My Take on the Book
This book was an exciting, fun, and high paced read! As a fan of other such novels by Clive Cussler or Stephen Coontz, this book keeps you on the edge of your seat and makes you want to read more! As a new author, I must commend Mr. Pearson on a well written book that engages the reader. I would definitely recommend that if you are interested in high paced action, you won't put it down. 

If this book sounds like something that you would like for your own library you can find it on Amazon!
