My name is Nyah and I’m a hacker. I know things most people would never believe. Things that shouldn’t exist, but do. 

Seventeen year old Nyah Parks is a genius hacker whose world is unraveling. Deeply scarred from a horrific accident that killed her father and brother, and left her mother with irreparable brain damage, Nyah is barely holding the last shreds of her life together.Now, her mother’s health is deteriorating quickly and Nyah faces the grim prospect of losing her, too. One last ditch hope exists–an experimental brain surgery that could buy her mother more time. But Nyah must scrape together enough money to pay for it before it’s too late.Desperate and with no other choice, Nyah turns her programming skills to cracking the firewalls of the world’s largest corporations. She exposes their weaknesses, and then offers her services to secure their systems from hackers.

But when the most dangerous job of her life backfires and forces her to go on the run, she encounters an impossible reality that shouldn’t exist, but does.

A hack unlike any other. A hack that will take her beyond the firewall of the human brain itself. A hack, which may be the only way to save her mother now.

What if there was a way to tap into the unseen reality that surrounds us all? Would you hack in? How far would you go to find the answers to your deepest questions? The answer lies deep beyond the firewall.

Tap in, strap in, and experience the mind-twisting ride with Nyah. What you find waiting on the other side of the firewall might forever change the way you see yourself and the world you live in.

Review

 

Ted Dekker does it again with another intense thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, while turning each page as fast as you can!  Dekker has a thought process that I just can’t even begin to fathom. This entire series just blows my mind.   I don’t usually ever read psychological thrillers, murder mysteries, or horror, but I will read anything Dekker writes. And this book was a prime example of why. This third installment in the Outlaw Chronicles is about two hackers who have gone too far.  An amazing storyteller, he weaves a strong story with Christian elements entwined in such a way that isn’t preachy, yet has you examining your life. The story will suck you in right from the very beginning as he knits an intricate tale that all comes together, with twists and turns that you won’t even be able to guess. When you think you have something figured out, you will find that you really don’t!
