“Thank you for your contribution to the Alexandria Project” is the message cyber attackers leave behind as they delete vital data from computer networks across America. It’s not long before the nation is on the verge of collapse as Wall Street, the transportation system, government agencies, and the rest of our internet-based economy all fall victim to the attacks. As the nation nears collapse, Frank Adversego, a brilliant but conflicted cyber security expert, finds himself trapped in a power play between the FBI and the CIA. Only by tracing the Alexandria Project back to the source can he clear himself.
What follows is a fast-paced, satirical tale of cyber sleuthing, international espionage, and nuclear brinksmanship that accurately portrays our increasing vulnerability to cyber attack. The surprise ending will leave readers both ready for the next Frank Adversego thriller, as well as concerned about where our headlong rush onto the Internet may be leading us.
“THE ALEXANDRIA PROJECT is fiction that cuts close to the bone. But where George Orwell envisioned 1984 from the safety of thirty-five years out, the future that Updegrove describes may already be upon us. That’s what makes it dangerous, and that’s what makes THE ALEXANDRIA PROJECT an important as well as riveting read.”
– Dan Geer, CHIEF INFORMATION SECURITY OFFICER, In-Q-Tel

I’ve been representing technology companies for more than thirty years, and work with many of the organizations seeking to thwart cyber-attacks before they occur. When I’m not writing or predicting the next cyber-disaster, I’m likely to be roaming the back country of the American southwest in my Jeep, scouting out settings for his next book. I spend summers on an island off the coast of Maine and winters in southwest Florida.
