This debut thriller ticks all the right boxes. It’s gripping, action packed, fast paced and has easily understandable ‘techno-babble’. Keep an eye on this author we think he’ll be up there with the best of the thriller writers very soon.

Synopsis

Maximum Impact by Jack Henderson

In 1993, a legendary hacker brainstorms the ultimate terrorist attack in a members-only online chat room. On September 11, 2001, he sees his dark vision materializing into a murderous reality. Jeannie Reese, lead designer in the US government’s Total Information Awareness program, begins a high-tech pursuit of this mythical figure of the Internet underground. But the hunt soon leads Jeannie down an alarming trail of revelations: the terrorists are gathering again and a massive follow-up attack is coming, designed by the most formidable mind she’s ever encountered.

An exciting thriller debut with relentless pace and nonstop action, Maximum Impact will appeal to anyone who enjoys the novels of Tom Clancy.

Reviews

' Stirring stuff' Observer

'A refreshing change from the obsession with serial rapists with a penchant for female dismemberment…' The Times

'A relentlessly paced page-turner - a rollercoaster read in the best tradition of Tom Clancy' Jeff Abbott

'The kind of thing Michael Crichton does well when he's at the top of his game, but most thriller writers never manage to pull off. Jack Henderson is the real thing.' Booklist
