Goldstrike by Matt Whyman 262 pages
This sequel to Icecore is sure to appeal to Anthony Horowitz fans in search of action, adventure and computer savvy readers. Okay, y'all know that I am not a computer savvy reader, but I do enjoy the occasional testosterone book or movie. Carl Hobbes, super-hacker is on the run not just from CIA (after being falsely accused, he escaped from an arctic American prison in Icecore) but al-Qaeda, too! His girlfriend, Beth becomes a liability -- she just can't help trying to sell the gold bullion she stole from Fort Knox. Yeah! So not quite reality based, but a fun fast read.
