About False Assurances
On the morning of July 12, 2017, the FBI Boston field office receives what appears to be a hoax call: a man rescued from the waters off Massachusetts has claimed that his sailboat was hijacked and used to smuggle weapons and terrorists into the United States. With local agents tasked to prepare for an evening Presidential visit to downtown Boston, and with procedures requiring a response to any threat, no matter how unreliable it may seem, FBI administrative staffer Ben Porter is dispatched to investigate the call.
What follows is a tale of a high-seas hijacking that leads to a completely plausible, and therefore terrifying, story of how terrorists can use simple disguises and deceptions to stage an attack on America. All that stands between them and success is Ben Porter.
Can Ben, untrained in field work and relying only his wits and intuition, uncover the deadly plot … in time to stop it?
About Threat Bias
Credited with successfully stopping a terror threat in 2017, FBI staffer Ben Porter has been promoted to Special Agent. But, within days of receiving his credentials and weapon, the tables are turned, and Ben finds himself—and his family—as a target. Ben must overcome his inexperienced biases to understand the motivation of his foes, in order to not only secure his own safety, but also to intercept a nefarious, invisible, and unprecedented new weapon of terror.
Not only does the plot of this tale twist and turn at speed, the story also questions the blind faith in computer security against the emerging technology that makes self-driving cars possible.
