Publisher's Summary

Rogue cyber-criminals want Jacob Michaels, a brilliant young programmer, to join them. He just doesn't know it yet. Jacob has the brains, expertise, and programming methods to get them what they want without discovery. With his best friend, Buzz, and a distractingly beautiful encryptionist in tow, Jacob enters the world of the Dark Internet here in the 21st century where the computer is the weapon of choice! With the cyber criminals engaged in international hacking, it's easy to have your identity slip through your fingers. No one, including Jacob, believes it when he learns he has been targeted. Jacob finds the space between cyber good and cyber evil difficult to navigate as well as highly deadly.
Jacob has settled into a quiet routine of a techno geek after his mother dies. The plans he made are disrupted when he discovers his life is in danger. He sets off on a mission that takes him into new technology views and exposes to him the inner-workings of unknown global technologists. Jacob learns that safeguards for technology are always evolving and being exploited. His challenge becomes how to keep ahead of the criminals and identify who to trust.
Book one of The Enigma Series brings relevant technology elements of programming, encryption, crypto-currency, identity theft, and hacking to highlight the professional excellence of Jacob, more so perhaps due to his sheltered upbringing. Explore the horrific damage cyber criminals can inflict as the award-winning authors, Breakfield and Burkey, weave a complex tale of danger, intrigue, and international cyber combat in their debut thriller, The Enigma Factor.

You would need to be a bit of a geeky/conspiracy theory type, but sure. Fits the mold well.

Any additional comments?

I did receive my copy of this offering in exchange for this review. So here we go. Well researched, almost to a fault, but on balance a solid start with reliable characters and a story arc that promises to move along quickly. Recommended!

I liked The Enigma Factor by authors:Charles V Breakfield , Roxanne E Burkey and will probably follow up with any subsequent offerings but.... there is a lot going on and at times I found my concentration waning. My fault not the story's but at times I felt like I was spinning too many plates in the air. I like longish and this book certainly is that. Steven Jay Cohen is superb and I hope that he is at the helm of the next Enigma Series, Book. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
