What Happens When The Net Comes Crashing Down?


It starts with unexplained glitches in the U.S. banking system. It spreads throughout the international business community. A cyber Terrorist has done the unthinkable: by seizing control of the Worldwide Information Network, he has the power to close airports at will, paralyze telephone communications across continents, stop the sales of weapons, and put a stranglehold on arms delivery systems on land and sea.


As the global community marshals its forces against this insidious Threat, FBI Special Agent Luanne Russell turns to K.C. Conrad, a renegade computer genius she once helped put in jail. Trusting no one around them—not even each other—Russell and Conrad enter a maze of treachery, violence and intrigue that reaches from the highest levels of government and industry to a single computer screen. And with the Web tightening like a noose on the world infrastructure, the ultimate terror is only one command away...

About William H. Lovejoy:

William H. Lovejoy is the author of twenty thriller, suspense, and mystery novels with publications in English, Japanese, Spanish, and Hebrew.

As a "master storyteller" according to Clive Cussler, Lovejoy has a penchant for taking a current event and projecting it into the near future, with a twist-a new super airport for Hong Kong, a takeover of Antarctica, superegos battling on the Internet. His stories are richly detailed with the culture of place as well as the high technology that may threaten it. And since events never take place in a vacuum, Lovejoy's novels are flavored with the multiple layers of the governments and bureaucracies that influence decisions and affect individual actions. Nelson DeMille reviewed China Dome as "A nice blend of high-tech, corporate espionage, subterfuge, and sabotage. A very rewarding read; tightly plotted, well-written, and thoroughly engaging."

An army brat born at Fort Huachuca, Arizona, Lovejoy grew up in Nebraska, Montana, and Colorado. He worked his way through degrees at Colorado State University as an interior designer and graduate teaching assistant. He is a Vietnam veteran and has served as a college assistant professor of English, a state college president, a college system chief fiscal officer, and a management consultant. He resides in Arizona, where he is vice president for administration at Mohave Community College.

A frequent commentator for writing workshops, he has taught writing as an adjunct faculty member of the University of Northern Colorado, and as a faculty member of the Pikes Peak Writers' Conference. Lovejoy is a member of Mystery Writers of America, and has written non-fiction articles for The Writer and Writer's Digest.
