Zero Day

A Jeff Aiken Novel

Jeff Aiken Series: Book #1
By Mark Russinovich & Howard Schmidt
Narrated by Johnny Heller / 9 hours 38 minutes

A technothriller for the malware and Stuxnet era

An airliner’s controls abruptly fail mid-flight over the Atlantic. An oil tanker runs aground in Japan when its navigational system suddenly stops dead. Hospitals everywhere have to abandon their computer databases when patients die after being administered incorrect dosages of their medicine. In the Midwest, a nuclear power plant nearly becomes the next Chernobyl when its cooling systems malfunction.

At first, these random computer failures seem like unrelated events. But Jeff Aiken, a former government analyst who quit in disgust after witnessing the gross errors that led up to 9/11, thinks otherwise. Jeff fears a more serious cyberterrorism attack targeting the United States computer infrastructure is already under way. And as other menacing computer malfunctions pop up around the world, some with deadly results, he realizes that there isn’t much time if he hopes to prevent an international catastrophe.

Written by a global authority on cyber security, Zero Day presents a chilling “what if” scenario that, in a world completely reliant on technology, is more than possible today—it’s a cataclysmic disaster just waiting to happen.

Zero Day is not science fiction; it is science fact, and it is a clear warning of Doomsday. A must-read for all Americans and for those entrusted with our security and our survival.”

Nelson DeMille, author of Plum Island

“While what Mark wrote is fiction, the risks that he writes about eerily mirror many situations that we see today.”

Howard A. Schmidt, White House Cyber Security Coordinator

“Mark came to Microsoft in 2006 to help advance the state of the art of Windows, now in his latest compelling creation he is raising awareness of the all too real threat of cyber terrorism.”

Bill Gates

Reviews

“Nothing if not topical, this is a competent thriller boasting a full share of conspiracies, betrayals, violence and against-the-clock maneuvers.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Microsoft computer guru Russinovich's first novel, a cautionary tale about the imminence of the great cyber attack to wipe out the Internet.”

Publishers Weekly
