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. The most exciting thriller debut of 2007, with a relentless pace and nonstop action, Maximum Impact will appeal to anyone who enjoys the novels of Tom Clancy.
