Wield the code, or die by it.
Hacking is a way of life for Angie Roman. Small-time cybercrime lets her skim just enough dollars off the web to carve out a modest, if isolated, corner of existence. Angie has coffee, computers - everything she needs.
But evil haunts the cyber highway, and Angie is its target.
When dark hackers break into her computer, Angie is forced to engage in cybercrimes that go way beyond her usual petty thefts. The kind of crimes that could land her in jail for a long time. The kind of crimes that could get someone killed. And when Angie decides she wants out, the real monsters come to play. The kinds of beasts that shred flesh in the night.
Only an old street vagabond and the mysterious 'Alby' can aid Angie in uncovering the mystic tangle of the cyber highway. And only by learning a unique and dangerous magic can Angie begin to fight back.
The magic of code-x.
Addictively fast-paced and tense, Code-X is a supernatural cyber thriller that will leave you enthralled by the unimaginable darkness of cyberspace.
Kenny Soward grew up in a small Kentucky suburb listening to hard rock and playing outdoors. In those quiet '70s streets, he jumped bikes, played Nerf football, and acquired many a childhood scar. His love for books flourished early, a habit passed down by his uncles, and he spent many high school days in detention for reading fantasy novels during class.
At the University of Kentucky, Kenny took creative writing classes under Gurny Norman, former Kentucky Poet Laureate and author of Divine Rights Trip (1971). By day, Kenny works as a Unix professional, and at night he writes and sips bourbon.
He lives in Independence, Kentucky, with three cats and a gal who thinks she's a cat.
