From a tip supplied by a snitch, Jack Wiley enlists the aid of Level 9 to raid a group of hackers who are in the process of selling a list of top secret NATO safehouses, in Iraq, to Saddam Hussein.
But the hackers wipe their computers and while Level 9 try to recover the information they come across some stolen codes, used for controlling a new computer-controlled plane.
Later, while undergoing evaluation tests, a computer piloted passenger jet is electronically hijacked and crashed. Its only passengers, two supervising pilots, are killed.
The hijacker soon makes his demands known and, if they are not met. threatens to take down an airliner fully loaded with passengers.
Level 9 must capture this cyber-jacker and locate and de-program his digital bomb before it sends a plane full of passengers plummeting to their deaths.moreless
