  Enter the complex world that lurks behind every computer in The Enigma Factor. Authors: Breakfield and Burkey weave a fascinating tale full of international danger and intrigue. Jacob Michaels spends his life working on programming and information protection. Considered a “white hat,” he works tirelessly to protect major organizations from the extensive damage caused by cyber criminals. But when cyber criminals target Jacob to turn him to the dark side, Jacob must use his knowledge and resources to save himself. This ultimately takes him to the furthest reaches of technology, a romantic entanglement, a chain reaction involving theft, hacking, and more danger than he ever could have imagined. As Jacob descends into the intricate trappings of cyberspace, however, he begins to suspect that he is not alone, and that the difference between the good guys and bad guys is not quite as clear as he thought.   sample chapter
