The Enigma Wraith, the fourth book in the Enigma series, serves up yet another captivating techno-thriller racing with romance, humor, and possible catastrophe. When an Irish financial institution, a Brazilian hydroelectric plant, a NATO base, and a smart car traveling through the European countryside are each hacked by the same sinister force, the world is introduced to the first glimpse of the potential damage that the Ghost Code can inflict - on both a personal and an industrial level.
Created by a mysterious pair of cyber pirates known only as Mephisto and Callisto, this destructive code is nearly impossible to find and even harder to remove. And while their agenda appears to be a blackmail plot for financial gain, their true aims could be of a far more menacing and expansive nature.
In an intriguing game of digital cat and mouse, the R-Group's 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 problem and craft a solution that can secure the world's technology infrastructure before it completely collapses.
What do we risk in our appetite for technology with no guardrails in place?
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.
