The Enigma Factor

Cyber-criminals are hunting for new victims when they target a brilliant programmer to join their cause.

Jacob Michaels, computer pen-tester extraordinaire, settled into a quiet life of work to polish his skills after his mother dies. These plans are turned upside down when he discovers his life is in danger. As Jacob sets off to find those who target him, he discovers new technology views which expose him to the inner-workings of previously unknown global technologist experts. Jacob learns that safeguards for technology are always evolving and being exploited. His challenge becomes how to keep ahead of the criminals and identify who to trust.

Jacob finds the space between cyber good guy and evil cyber thugs difficult to navigate as well as highly deadly. Like rust, the cat and mouse game of the new cyber warfare age never sleeps.

As he explores the world of the Dark Net here in the 21st century he learns all too quickly that technology and the computer is today’s weapon of choice! With his best friend Buzz, and a distractingly beautiful encryptionist Petra, Jacob thinks he has the brains, expertise, and programming proficiency to outsmart the cyber thugs. He finds out, however, that even he is susceptible to having his identity slip through his fingers. But the assignation of his identity proved he had more to learn.

In their debut techno-thriller, The Enigma Factor, book 1 of The Enigma Series, award-winning authors Breakfield and Burkey weave a complex tale of danger, intrigue, and international cyber combat. The Enigma Factor battles pit Jacob against global cyber masterminds using relevant technology elements of programming, encryption, crypto-currency, identity theft, and hacking. They use the technology foundation and layer on travel, romance, humor and mystery that highlight the professional excellence of Jacob, more so perhaps due to his sheltered upbringing.

You’ll want to keep reading until the end, to understand who Jacob should and should not trust.
