A gripping novel exposing the potent potential of peril caused by spyware on a single phone and electronic espionage of major entities

INSIDE: Marlins Cry A Phishing Story, The Digital Damnation of Civilized Society, is a gripping novel exposing the potent potential of peril for individuals, caused by spyware on a single phone, and for a society, through electronic espionage of major entities. The big fish of the business world put out a battle cry for cyber security in this poignant book. The story softens the fear factor with a spiritual message of hope.


THE STORY takes place marlin fishing on a boat in the Bahamas, with a main character, a writer, who is victimized by spyware. She relives her terror daydreaming on the boat. The boat owner, her PR firm client, is being attacked by corporate electronic espionage that threatens demise for the whole country. The boat captain, and several other characters, all receive the plight of the two victims with varying degrees of interest, mostly indifference. The story outlines a wake up call for America to protect itself, because we are all connected, starting with responsibility of each individual who uses a phone or computer. The story softens the fear factor with a spiritual message of hope.

THE GIST of the book is best summarized by the main character in Chapter 12:

“I am afraid that my stalker might kill me, yes, but my bigger fear is that our entire civilized society, as we know it and enjoy it, is in terrible jeopardy. Unscrupulous international criminal minds can wipe out our infrastructure and bring us to a third-world scavenger survival-mode. They can do it in an instant, totally invisible and virtually untraceable, from anywhere in the world.”
