9800 Savage Road: A Novel of the National Security Agency
Apparently bin Laden has figured out his wires were tapped. What he's planning is big—a strike against the U. Harrigan delivers the first insider's perspective in NSA's history.
Working late one night, Alex decides to go on the hunt for the coldest water fountain within the NSA. The United States sends in a man who has been trained on how to fit in to Afghanistan and tap back in to the wire system that will allow America to re-establish listening in on bin Laden.
This takes her to a different floor in a different wing of the building. They are intercepting Osama bin Laden's every word as he talks on his satellite phone to al Qaeda cells.
She shreds the thick veil of secrecy and explores the thoughts and actions, the dedication and bureaucratic infighting, and the occasional scandals of the hidden workforce. A Senior Executive is murdered inside the NSA complex, the first in a series of disasters inflicted from both inside and outside the carefully concealed house of spies.
All of a sudden, the communications go silent. After reporting the murder, Alex becomes one of the main suspects, hindering her ability to investigate the death on her own. Setting aside the technical jargon, the story is interesting, and according to the author some of it is even true.
And quite recently, too, judging by the feel of his blood all over her as she slips and slides through the murder scene. It's a story of betrayal and treachery, courage and loyalty… so real you'll wonder how much is true.
Not only does Alexandra break all the rules of the NSA to help Gabe stay safe and accomplish his mission, Alex has to deal with a series of threats and murders that are happening within NSA walls. This is a good debut novel with a strong female character that would be interesting as a series.
Still looking into the murders while trying to help Gabe in Afghanistan, Alex uncovers another terrorist threat closer to home.
Luckily, or not, another murder shortly after the first appears to exonerate Alex, even though Alex knows the new direction the investigation is going is not right.
What she finds on the way to get a good glass of water is much more than she bargained for.
