Farris is a young and talented hacker. She relocated with her father to an experimental government aircraft facility. As the security of the fleet is compromised and to protect her father, she decided to investigate a series of computer glitches to identify the cyber criminal before the events escalate to something more serious, like murder.

This is the first novel of the Hacker series. The book is well written, full of mystery and action with a little bit of romance thrown in.  One can relate to the characters and the events are believable. The book was slow on building suspense as it covered quite a bit on the high school drama and different characters, but none the less a good read. There are no cliffhanger endings or major surprises and can be read as a stand alone.

I was actually in two minds to purchase book 2, but I was glad I did. But that review is for another day.

At time of writing the kindle version was free – click here to download a copy of the first novel.
