 The Anonymous Signal by Erec Stebbins

The Anonymous SignalAre you one of those readers who loves a good thriller? Love the idea of computer espionage? Sure that one day, someone is going to hack the biggest financial institutions, including the world’s stock markets and bring the moneymen to their knees? Do you think that our government has black ops buried so deep that they are virtually untraceable as they do the grunt work, the detective work and even the wet work to bring criminals down? You are going to love Erec Stebbins’ The Anonymous Signal! No need to be tech savvy, it actually makes this intriguing and HIGHLY possible tale all the more magnetic. Genius hackers, brilliant code writers who know how to sneak in and plant worms or viruses that take on a life of their own, they are out there, trust me and trust Erec Stebbins to add a bureaucratic dog and pony show to muck up the waters. You’ll have to keep remind yourself that this is fiction.

Flash forward and back, then to somewhere in the middle as we catch up with characters from The Ragnanok Conspiracy as once again, those unsung heroes are left out in the cold to uncover, expose and end one of the greatest threats to both the cyberworld and the world at large. One paranoid genius has had it and is out to prove he won’t take it anymore, unless, of course we are talking all of the world’s money. How do fight a master hacker? By recruiting master hackers, and when your orders are “by any means possible,” well, get the best of the best and their backgrounds are often a little sketchy.

Hang on tight for this one, it does NOT slow down and will in turn, make you angry, have you getting exasperated and leaving you wanting to put all of your hard-earned dollars into Mason jars, buried in the ground. At least you would have “real money,” as opposed to the “virtual money” traded on a daily basis. From the murders of high profile movers and shakers to an army of drones, this is edge of your seat madness all the way as the bad guys manage to step one step ahead of the good guys, one line of code at a time.

Great job, Erec Stebbins! Highly intriguing, wickedly fast-paced and oh so current to the times! I will always think of The Anonymous Signal with every stroke of my grandchildren’s keyboards.
