Day One

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.



In Nate Kenyon's Day One, scandal-plagued hacker journalist John Hawke is hot on the trail of the explosive story that might save his career. James Weller, the former CEO of giant technology company Eclipse, has founded a new start-up, and he's agreed to let Hawke do a profile on him. Hawke knows something very big is in the works at Eclipse---and he wants to use the profile as a foot in the door to find out more.

After he arrives in Weller's office in New York City, a seemingly normal day quickly turns into a nightmare as anything with an Internet connection begins to malfunction. Hawke receives a call from his frantic wife just before the phones go dead. Soon he and a small band of survivors are struggling for their very lives as they find themselves thrust into the middle of a war zone---with no obvious enemy in sight.

The bridges and tunnels have been destroyed. New York City is under attack from a deadly and brilliant enemy that can be anywhere and can occupy anything with a computer chip. Somehow Hawke must find a way back to his pregnant wife and young son. Their lives depend upon it . . . and so does the rest of the human race.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 08, 2013 – Machines turn on their users in this uneven and occasionally sloppy apocalyptic thriller set in a near-future New York City. John Hawke s career as a reporter has hit the skids, and his hopes for a return to professional respectability hang on getting the scoop on a new breakthrough in quantum computing. That ambition is derailed after the U.S. Department of Justice s Web servers are taken down, which proves to be the prologue to technological mayhem on a wide scale. Billions in assets are erased on the stock market, sending the world economy into free fall, and explosions across the city lead the mayor to declare a state of emergency. Kenyon (Sparrow Rock) maintains tension well enough as Hawke battles to get to his developmentally challenged child and pregnant wife in New Jersey, but the plot plays out predictably and is staffed by characters who lack dimension.
