Authored by Lior Samson

"The First Law of Cyber-Terrorism: Anything that can be turned on under program control can be turned off; anything that can be controlled remotely can be thrown out of control remotely."

Destiny Allen doesn't even like on-line games. A Web designer for computer security giant Scenaria Systems, she finds herself involved in a deadly puzzle that blurs the boundaries between the virtual and the real. At stake: the infrastructure of modern America. Her resources: Dina Gustafson, a college friend, and Karl Lustig, an Israeli technology journalist with friends in dark places. The challenge: sort the good guys from the bad before the lights go out.

Intricately plotted at a breathless pace, this technology thriller from novelist Lior Samson (author of Bashert and The Dome) is about real risks and virtual worlds, about Internet threats as close as tomorrow's nightly news, and about the ever-escalating warfare between black-hat hackers and modern society.


REVIEW BY VETERAN CRITIC ALAN CARUBA (BOOKVIEWS)
This extraordinary author has the ability to anticipate events in ways that enhance his novels and Web Games, his latest, is no exception.... True to form, Samson is just ahead of the curve with yet another thriller and its theme is cyber-terrorism. ... Behind the pseudonym of Lior Samson is a university professor whose own background brings to his work a reality that only such technical knowledge could produce....The end result is the story of Destiny Allen, a Web designer for a computer security giant who finds herself in a deadly game that may bring down the electrical energy infrastructure of America. We have seen damage that the WikiLeak revelations have done.... Web Games dwarfs that as the main character must enlist her friends to deter a catastrophe. You will not put it down.
