Synopsis

Now in development for film by 20th Century Fox, award-winning CyberStorm is a new classic of apocalyptic fiction that depicts, in realistic and sometimes terrifying detail, what a full scale cyber attack against present-day New York City might look like from the perspective of one family trying to survive it.

Mike Mitchell, an average New Yorker working to keep his family together, finds himself fighting just to keep them alive when a string of disasters shreds the world around them...the Internet and communication networks go down...a deadly viral epidemic rages across the country...then a monster snowstorm cuts New York off from the world.

In the chaos, rumors fly about a foreign attack, but even this becomes unimportant as Mike and his family struggle to survive in the wintry tomb of a doomed New York.
"I couldn't put it down...finally shows how dangerous our transition to an interconnected infrastructure has become." - Karic Allega, Joint Cyber Command, US NAVY

CyberStorm is an edge-of-your-seat view into one family's battle for life in a ruined mega-city, with millions of readers voting it into the top-20 of GoodReads in its category. It comes from the mind of Matthew Mather, a leading cybersecurity expert and author of Darknet and the science fiction series Atopia Chronicles.
