Title: Dark Winter
Series: Jake Mahegan Novel #1
Author: Anthony J. Tata 
(U.S. Army Brigadier General Ret.)

Power and wealth could destroy the world in Tata’s latest thriller. Jake Mahegan and his team of operatives are the best of the best, but how do you battle an opponent with money, connections, and a team of professional hackers? With access to nuclear weapons and key people in various world governments, ComWar (Computer Optimized Warfare) is ready to launch nuclear missiles at Japan; then Russia will invade Europe, and the Middle East will explode in the aftermath. Mahegan must battle an enemy who seems to know his every move, and, worse, his plans are muddled by personal considerations: Will his heart get in the way of the mission? Tata has taken elements of the world’s political stage and mixed them brilliantly with a virtual treatise on cybersecurity. Throw in a charismatic villain steering the game, and you have all the elements in place for a classic, high-adventure technothriller. The open-ended conclusion will leave readers hanging, but that will only make them wish that Tata could please write faster. This is the best thriller yet by the former brigadier general.
