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

Having worked as a systems consultant for k15 years now, and before that, working in defensive missle systems, this was LAN amazing piece of work. It kept my attention from the first chapter, and was hard to put down.
Being that it is a work of fiction, I sincerely hope people will not underestimate the message.
Unfortunately very crude
Opening chapter details adult behavior. Second chapter is filled with expletives. Too bad, since the plot was great. Had to delete the sample because of all the crude language and situations.
This was an excellent book that I could not put down. Exciting and something that is not out of the realm of possibility of actually happening.
It is one of the few books that I have read as an IT professional that was technically accurate.
