If you liked Jack Reacher and Mitch Rapp, then you'll enjoy Morgan Rapier. Daddy’s Little Felons, Rick Bennett’s second novel, introduces former Navy SEAL and computer wizard Morgan Rapier, a one-man force of nature whose retaliation against Russian & Chinese hackers inadvertently starts (and eventually wins) a world-wide cyberwar. His creative attack against an Islamic hacker nearly ignites a holy war. The video of his beating up a child abuser goes viral and becomes the #1 Navy SEAL recruitment vehicle. And his tracking down a serial killer in Utah embarrasses quite a few prominent locals, whose ancestors took part in the infamous Mountain Meadow’s Massacre. But the net effect of Daddy’s Little Felons is to build a case for privatizing world-wide Internet security with licensed and bonded cyber privateers as provided for in Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. Privateering made all the difference in the Revolutionary War. It could save us from devastation in our modern age.
