The Quantum Breach: A Book Review

Do you ever worry about what you share on-line?  Do you shred papers with important information?  If you don't, you might after reading this book.

I am part of the book tour for The Quantum Breach by Denver Acey; I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
Tanner has worked hard at his job for many years and is looking forward to his two month sabbatical, a trip up the coast he plans on taking with his parents. Everything goes wrong when he finds his parents tied up in their home and they are all kidnapped with his parents held as bait. 

Tanner is held hostage forced to use skills from his secret past to hack into a computer system to steal plans for a super computer. This isn't a simple hack that can be done in minutes but takes weeks of preparation work, research and careful execution. 

The book is an exciting read throughout the entire book. As I read I began to worry that something far fetched and one of those 'how did they make it out of that' (only in the movies) kind of moments would happen; but much to my delight the book reads extremely believable and truly feels like all of the events could have happened. 

The author's background in information technology, where he actually witnessed and thwarted cyber-crime, definitely lends to the credibility of this story.  I love that it is written in a way that non-tech savy people can enjoy it though too. 

I loved this book and finished it in two days as I wanted to find out what happened next. It had a satisfying ending.  It felt like it could be setting up for a sequel, which I would love as I would love to continue following the characters in this book, but it also has a definite ending.  This is what I call a clean book-free of language, sex, or intense graphic imagery; which in my opinion makes for a more enjoyable read.

I definitely recommend this book.

You can purchase the book at the following locations:
Amazon//Barnes and Nobel//Deseret Book
