Breaking Backbones: Information Should Be Free
Book Ii of the Hacker Trilogy
Cy is still healing from injuries that almost killed her during Operation Backbone when she is called back for a very personal reason. Her son Michael is in the clutches of Damian Strandeski, former chairman of the GlobeCom board and kingpin behind all criminal syndicates operating on the dark web.
Cy quickly deduces that her son is collateral damage in Damian’s grab for the lead developer behind a new artificial intelligence named Telos, which is more powerful than GlobeCom was. As she heads to Europe on a rescue mission, Cy’s eldest son Adam enlists their clan’s rogue copy of Telos to aggressively search for Damian. Then the AI seems to take matters into its own hands…
As they execute their plan to save Michael and catch Damian, Cy and her team face unforeseen retaliation that endangers them all. Will they finally defeat Damian, or will he once again take control of the world through technology?
