"When Jim Martini goes back to his WV hometown to see why its major employer failed suddenly he finds more than a failed company. He risks his life, finds a lost love, and stumbles into an international conspiracy. A Chinese revolutionary group is using viruses, hacking, malware and cyber-technology to over-throw its own government and attempt to control the US--by shutting down all forms of computers and communications--all at once.
Suddenly nothing works—communications are “silenced”. The US is preoccupied fighting global terrorism, so it’s up to Jim, hometown friends and a small team of CIA, FBI, and NSA agents to overcome this devastating threat and stop The Chinese Conspiracy.
Set in the lush mountains of West Virginia and half-way around the world in China, The Chinese Conspiracy weaves a chilling tale of cyber-terrorism, current events and a tender love story. Read The Chinese Conspiracy and then call or e-mail someone you love, but do it while everything still works.
--“The Chinese Conspiracy has the intrigue of John Grisham, the spice of Mickey Spillane and the technical aspects of Tom Clancy.”
--""This chilling new novel links the world's increasing dependency on the Internet to vulnerabilities that can be exploited for evil. This launches John Mariotti as a new master of the genre."" —Calvin Myer, Co-founder WorldWide Ltd.
--“We always prepare to fight the last war but never the next war… this should be the wake-up call to America. Mariotti is blowing the bugle for all of us.” —John Ellingson, CEO, Edentification
--""Mariotti has created a fast moving thriller full of vivid characters who hook the readers emotions and find a place in their hearts. The good guys are good; the bad guys are awful; and the women are terrific."" —John Grom, CEO, Executive Search"
