Full of Fast-Paced Action

5 out of 5 stars

Dark Tomorrow is the second book in the Lisa Tanchik series, and what a series it’s been so far. Hirsch writes technothrillers that feel like they could happen at any moment and Dark Tomorrow is another one of those books. The first book, Black Nowhere, introduces us to Tanchik and shows exactly what she’s capable of – but also the “black dog” and her depression and alcoholism. All of these things are back in this book and definitely become major plot points at times.

Let me just say that Hirsch does a great job setting the stage for these attacks and spends a lot more time in the field than at the computer. I enjoy both parts of it, but Dark Tomorrow was balls-to-the-wall action with lots of running around and playing catch up. There were a few times that I wasn’t sure how NatalyaX was going to go down or if she would. And there were definitely times that I hoped that Lisa would come out okay.

The overall story in this was really good, a bit different than the first book. Lisa relies on some of her friends in this one, and she gets to play more of a spy/counterspy than in the previous book. We also get to pry her brain wide open and live in there. Seeing just how good she can be when she’s up and how bad it is when she’s down. It was a great book for character building while also not losing the main story.

Overall, Dark Tomorrow was an enjoyable thriller that I couldn’t put down. Lots of action while still keeping the main characters grounded in realism. Not something the books like this can do all the time.

Book Description:

FBI special agent and cybercrime specialist Lisa Tanchik faces a deadly threat in this white-knuckle thriller.

FBI special agent Lisa Tanchik is skilled at handling cyber threats, having recently taken down a Dark Web black market worth billions. But ruthless hacker NatalyaX always seems to be a step ahead.

The government calls on Tanchik’s expertise when an email attachment causes a fatal seizure at US Cyber Command. But before she can get her feet under her, the entire East Coast goes dark. A sinister plan is unfolding before her eyes – and no one knows who’s behind it.

Tanchik plunges into chaos to hunt down the true source of the attacks. Close dealings with shadowy figures both online and off expose her to extraordinary danger as the country teeters on the brink of catastrophe.

A soldier on the front line of a cyberwar, Tanchik must nullify the threat before it deals a death blow to America’s institutions – and puts millions of lives in jeopardy.
