FBI Agent Jack Kenyon is an expert at cyber warfare, in which hackers and secret government agencies leverage weak spots in the Internet to cause carnage to their enemies. Assigned to uncover an industrial spy ring trying to steal Cyberworm, a US secret code, Jack is sure the murder of a double agent is linked to his investigation. But the sudden passing of his aunt Lydia in London complicates his plans. As the named executor of her estate, Jack flies to England, only to discover evidence that Lydia’s death may have been connected to a terrorist plot to unleash a devastating computer virus.

As his professional life collides with his personal, Jack can’t help but wonder about the odds of such a coincidence. Jack must solve Lydia’s murder and catch the conspirators intent on wreaking international havoc—before the truth about his family catches up with him. Also available in hardcover.

Gordon Cope is a full-time writer and freelance journalist who travels searching for memorable characters, rollicking adventures and expatriate experiences that North American readers and travellers dream about. He is the author of A Thames Moment, A Paris Moment and So, We Sold Our House and Ran Away to the South Pacific, as well as Secret Combinations his first book in a mystery fiction series.

Secret Combinations is a strong debut mystery . . . The dialogue moves the action forward while revealing the network of emotions deftly unveiled by the author. The action is short and sharp and leads to a climax worth reading twice. —The Hamilton Spectator

Calgary writer Gordon Cope's debut novel, Secret Combinations, is focused on the 'ripped-from-the-headlines' threat of cyber warfare and, more specifically, the sort of constructed viruses that can worm their way into the western world's computers and devastate civilization. . . . While Agent Jack Kenyon's first adventure will have him coming face to face with some family secrets linked to the sudden death of his aunt, he is a lot less dark and troubled than most heroes that front a continuing mystery series. —Calgary Herald
