Now in development for film by 20th Century Fox, award-winning CyberStorm depicts, in realistic and sometimes terrifying detail, what a full scale cyber attack against present-day New York City might look like from the perspective of one family trying to survive it.
Mike Mitchell, an average New Yorker working to keep his family together, finds himself fighting just to keep them alive when a string of disasters shreds the world around them...the Internet and communication networks go down...a deadly viral epidemic rages across the country...then a monster snowstorm cuts New York off from the world. In the chaos, rumors fly about a foreign attack, but even this becomes unimportant as Mike and his family struggle to survive in the wintry tomb of a doomed New York.
"I couldn't put it down...finally shows how dangerous our transition to an interconnected infrastructure has become." - Karic Allega, Joint Cyber Command, US NAVY
CyberStorm is an edge-of-your-seat view into one family's battle for life in a ruined mega-city, with millions of readers voting it into the top-20 of GoodReads in its category. It comes from the mind of Matthew Mather, a leading cybersecurity expert and author of Darknet, Nomad, and the science fiction series Atopia Chronicles.

I'm excited to announce that on July 12th, 20th CENTURY FOX acquired the film rights to CyberStorm in a "major" film deal -- more news to come soon...
I'd like to thank my editor, Gabe Robinson (previously at Harper Collins in NYC but now freelancing) for his incredible help in getting CyberStorm assembled and edited. I'd also like to thank my small army of dozens of beta readers who combed through the early manuscripts--this is as much my novel as all of theirs, and a testament to the power of the internet in shaping new media. I have a full list of everyone who helped me contained in the novel itself.
Finally, I'd like to thank all of the members of the cybersecurity community who lent me their time and insight into making this as realistic a scenario as possible of what a full-scale cyber event could like. I have named several key individuals at the start of the book.
Thank you everyone, and hope you enjoy the read!
