DEATH BY FIRE is a scary ride down the information superhighway in the style of Tom Clancy & Frederick Forsyth. Chris Davis' new cautionary cyber thriller has spy satellites going off-line leaving the Pentagon blind; parallel processors in nuclear subs going haywire causing them to believe they're under attack by phantom wolf packs; & a panicked President Clinton rushing to the Russian embassy to transmit secret Doomsday codes & prevent nuclear disaster. This is the unfolding of "soft-kill", an act of computer terrorism that Pentagon top brass fear more than if terrorists stole nuclear warheads themselves. Davis has meticulously researched recently declassified Pentagon reports that admit the United States is vulnerable to attack by computer. All it takes is a technician with the proper clearances to program a virus into the 20 million lines of Pentagon software & simply walk away. Days, months, years later--just as this country comes under attack-- America's state-of-the-art command & control system crashes, leaving us wide open & defenseless. In DEATH BY FIRE, the computer becomes the ultimate terrorist tool, & Chris Davis shows, in this gripping read, how a computer virus could start World War III.Davis, Chris is the author of 'Death by Fire' with ISBN 9780964444478 and ISBN 096444447X.
