Seems like this one was hastily put together, not not the best Kincaid novel I've read. The use of the word "man" was annoying and out of place, such as "What are you doing, man?".

Just seems like there wasn't a lot of thought put into the plot. A computer hacker that seamus worked with on another case "just happened to write the code that was used to take over the US satellite computers.

Just didn't have the makings of a great thriller. ( )
