Deadly Invisible Enemies
Posted by Literary Titan
Cybersecurity expert Kevin Albright is living a shadow life. After foiling a potentially catastrophic plot to detonate a 1000-mile oil pipeline and seeing his family life torn to shreds, Albright is forced to flee his country, leaving behind his identity, his friends, and a trail of international criminals hell-bent on killing the man who ruined their plans.
But Josh Burke – Kevin’s new alias – cannot leave his past life behind. Haunted by the memories of the destruction of his family and obsessed with bringing the perpetrators to justice, Burke uses his new job as a technician at a small town internet service provider to search the web for clues – only to find himself embroiled in yet another plot to hack and attack critical infrastructure around the world.
The third book in Harold Lea Brown’s Deadly Invisible Enemy series, Evil Resurrection is a thrilling glimpse into the hidden realm of dark web hackers and the government agencies involved in bringing them to justice. The majority of the story is seen through the eyes of two main characters – amateur spy Kevin Albright and former gangster Big D, and it also brings a whole ensemble of players into the digital chess game unfolding in real-time.
The plot is an intricate and twisting web, that will have you flicking back to previous chapters, in an attempt to join the dots as the layered network of characters and events grows larger and larger. Although the concepts involved are highly technical, the reader is never left behind; the complexities of computer hacking are explained clearly without being patronizing. While this does leave some of the ‘explanation’ dialogue feeling a tad clunky, with conversations between the characters slightly forced in to explain some of the more tricky parts of computer hacking, it is also a fascinating insight into the ever expanding invisible world that oversees more and more of our daily lives.
The story moves at lighting pace, with short easy to digest chapters jumping from location to location and character to character. A slight criticism is that this constant fast pace somewhat takes away from the climactic ending – when all the strands of the story begin to come together, there’s no space left to move the suspense and drama up a notch for the climax.
Evil Resurrection is a highly enjoyable read with twists and turns aplenty. The characters are real and relatable and will leave you wishing you had the lightning fingers of a ‘white hat’ computer hacker – or even the lavish life of a cigar-smoking, cognac-sipping crime lord. As soon as the last page is turned you will be eagerly looking toward the next instalment in the Deadly Invisible Enemies series.
