Publisher's Summary

An autistic teenager. A ruthless assassin. An FBI agent who must risk everything to protect an innocent person from a savage.
All three are thrust together when Simon Lynch, a 16-year-old savant, unknowingly breaks the newest, most secure code developed by the National Security Agency. Corrupt elements within that government behemoth, determined to protect their creation, send Keiko Kimura, a beautiful and brutal terrorist, after the young man. Only FBI Special Agent Art Jefferson stands between the killer and her prey.
As though they were father and son, the bond between Art and Simon turns out to be as crucial to their survival as Art's decades of experience in the FBI. Together, they must evade their pursuers who track them through cyberspace and dog them at every turn.
The action in Simple Simon never lets up until its final, explosive conclusion.

The movie is much better

What disappointed you about Simple Simon?

This is a case where the movie, 'Mercury Rising' with Bruce Willis and Alec Baldwin far outshines this very short novella. The movie wasn't all that great and it shows up regularly on the Encore type cable channels. This book is a slow read and having seen the movie first, it offered some rather gory and sadistic twists that the screen writers thankfully chose to ignore. I would save the credit cost and skip it.

Has Simple Simon turned you off from other books in this genre?

There is another book by this author that I will give a listen to but if it isn't any better then I'm going to give him the Big X.
