America is under assault. Cyberterrorist strikes plunge northern California into darkness. Cellular and Internet communications are silenced, with finaoncial and air traffic control systems threatened to follow. Rushed in by Homeland Security to prevent further attacks, network security entrepreneur Kirsten Lockhart conceives a daring plan she feels offers the only chance to stop the terrorists. Securing the help of a computer genius being pursued by the CIA, Kirsten races to implement her risky plan to turn the terrorists' own weapons against them. She quickly finds herself pursued not only by the terrorists but by powerful forces in the U.S. government who for their own reasons want the cyberattacks to continue. With a story that springs from today's headlines, James McFarlin's new thriller AFTERSHOCK takes you on an electrifying journey where soaring political ambition and military overreach propel the nation toward global conflict where few, if any, winners will emerge.
