I enjoyed The Quantum Breach. The technology of the book was over my head but made the book feel real and very believable. Especially with all the cyber stealing of countries. The suspense was very good you were not sure how it would all play out.
I liked Tanner and a few other characters in the book. The kidnappers were good characters too. At times they were really likeable.
It did mention LDS beliefs very simple and not preachy. Mainly as one motive for Tanner's change and why a relationship had broken up.
The setting was the Albuquerque, New Mexico area. It made me want to visit some of the places.
Tanner Zane used to be a computer hacker and made a fortune. Then he realized what he had done and changed. He gave his money to charity. Now he has been at a company that after working for seven years you get two months off paid vacation. He is taking his parents on a trip paying for everything. He is single.
The plot somehow a gang new he was a computer hacker and kidnapped him and his parents. They were kept at different locations. If Tanner did not steel technology from a high security place they would kill his parents. He would be working 18 hour days. He was in a isolated area. Had a ankle monitoring bracelet with GPS on it. He always had two guards around him at a time and someone who understood what he was doing with computer.
You never knew if Tanner could break into the top secret site. If they would kill his parents or him. Good drama, lots of action, smart thinking. Good clean read.
I would read another book by Denver Acey again. Especially with Tanner in it.
I think I need to look at what is on my computer and what information is out on the internet about me. I know an awful lot is.
This is a good book if you want a smart, action, spy book novel that is real life like.
I was given this ebook to read for the purpose of giving a honest review of it from Cedar Fort.

As an engineer I appreciate the technically accurate aspects of this book. Woven into a very intriguing story are identify theft, computer hacking, and leading edge computers you can read about in the news headlines today. Everyone can learn something about these areas from reading this book which has been well researched. It will make you rethink your password choices and what information your post on the web.
It has intriguing but also funny moments; even some romance.The characters are well developed from the bad guys to the good girl.
I highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed this book! Exciting story. Fast read. Interesting to see how much information can be found on a person just using the media. I loved the way Tanner secretly communicated.

Though technically minded, I found this cyber-thriller to be fascinating and easy to understand. It was truly a heart pounding--page turner. My teenagers loved it also.

This book is a compelling, gripping story that keeps you turning the pages. It is an eye-opening and somewhat concerning look at today's everything-connected world. While it is the storyline that makes this book great, it has enough technical insight to keep even the seasoned security professional coming back for more. A great read for both youth and adult.

This novel is full of surprises and exciting turns. It has a refreshingly original plot and is cleverly written. Even though based on a technical theme, it is easy to understand and has abundant human interest with several personal relationships woven into the intriguing story. It has a wide appeal; mature adults, young adults and teenagers will find it a captivating, delightful read. I hope there will be a sequel

A PHENOMENAL spy/espionage book!
THIS ONE REALLY DELIVERS!
I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN!
Tanner Zane and his parents have been kidnapped.
Because Tanner has a secret past of computer hacking...and they want him to hack into a "top-security government facility" to get the plans for the quantum computer.
Keeping Tanner's parents as collateral forces him to go against everything he has promised to NEVER DO AGAIN!
But Tanner is smarter than the criminals give him credit for and he starts an intellectual game of wits with his captors.
TWIST and TURNS will lead you on a fantastic chase of "cat-and-mouse" using the cyber-world as the background.
SO. SO. SO. GOOD!
A MUST READ!
