Cardiac by Jeffrey Monaghan
What if the one thing meant to keep you alive was used to kill you?
Embattled CEO Jack Getty is nervous. This is his final chance to save his company. He is announcing his firm's breakthrough discovery at the world’s largest annual biotech conference. A discovery that trials show will extend human life by 75%. But as Jack approaches the podium, he suffers a major heart attack and collapses onto the stage, stunning the conference attendees.
Jack is rushed to the emergency room where surgeons implant the latest Wi-Fi enabled pacemaker, saving his life in the process. What Jack doesn’t know, however, is that an underground hacking group has its sights set on manipulating his “secure” pacemaker to get information only he can provide. Despite the hackers unrelenting terror, Jack refuses to give them what they want and soon starts to uncover the true motives of this mysterious and powerful group.
Fast-paced and complex, this medical/techno thriller twists and turns as it stays one step ahead of the reader. Readers will find it a heart-pounding novel that dances on the fringe of the dangers lurking within today's modern technologies.
Whew! What a book! Being in a family that has frequent heart problems, Cardiac really makes you think about how advanced modern medicine can be. If I ever have to have a pacemaker some day I will probably be a bit of nervous wreck!
This is a great book. It is very action packed and it keeps you on your toes wanting more! I had a hard time putting it down! What is better than a book that you NEVER want to put down?! Not much!
Cardiac is a must read! Thanks so much, Jeff Monaghan, for sending this amazing book to me!
