Publisher's Summary

Nine-eleven was the world's worst terrorist atrocity.
Julian Fox intends to change that fact.
The planning will take months.
The attack will take just two minutes.
Nine-eleven involved four airliners, three buildings, and 3,000 deaths. What Fox is planning will down 1,300 airliners, devastate countless city centers, and kill around half a million people.
His method won't require a single hijacker, just 23 lines of computer code.
Sarah Green is an aviation risk analyst in the Department of Homeland Security. Her job is to out-think the terrorists: identify weaknesses in airline security arrangements, figure out how those weaknesses might be exploited, and get protections in place before the terrorists get their chance.
Neither knows the other exists, yet the two are locked in a race that only one of them can win.

Overly technical

The idea, the events and the final outcome are very good but there is an awful lot of technical jargon relating to planes and computers, which I didn't find particularly engaging. I certainly wouldn't describe this book as one that I couldn't stop listening to. The American narrator does a pretty poor job of having a British accent; at times it was reminiscent of Dick Van Dyke's effort in Mary Poppins! A shame because the book's plot is chilling and has the potential to put fear into all of us.

So that's what a techno thriller is

This is definitely the first techno thriller I have read so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect but it seems that's it's a genre that I enjoy. Yes there is a fair bit of technical jargon in here but I think it was necessary to satisfy the 'techno' description and I was able to listen without totally understanding what it meant. I found the narration jarred a little in terms of accents and particularly the pronunciation of 'mobile' which was a frequently used word. Overall it's a really well plotted story but probably not one you want to read on an aircraft.
