Cyperterrorism, espionage, counterintelligence, the sewers of the State, the defense of freedom before Internet surveillance, the access to the unknown, the fragility of the truth ... all that is 'Incognitus'.
"I admire that the author, professor of mathematics and expert in artificial intelligence, puts her academic training at the service of history without abusing technicalities. Above all, her knowledge on these matters is essential to endow the novel with credibility. Antonia Huertas uses everyday language to tell a story that cleverly inserts the professional adventures of the protagonist, Beppa Mardegan, Europol's analyst and her private life", - Black Club, on 'Alterworld'
The in cybercrime specialised Europol analyst, Beppa Mardegan, is faced with cyber jidadism, which has targeted the members of an international security summit, located in Barcelona. The threat looms over the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of the European Union.
With the support of her boss and friend Patrick White – they don’t always agree on their methods and approaches, as Beppa tends to occasionally skip protocols – and the help of the seductive hacker Lena, who joins them unexpectedly, they face the challenging mission.
But what has never stopped tormenting Beppa, is the regret to have never discovered the truth about her mother’s death, who was linked to Far-Left Extrememist movements and died in a terrorist attack attributed to the Red Brigades in 1982. More than thirty years after the event, she needs to find out which side her mother was on – was she one of the victims or perhaps responsible for placing the bomb that killed eight people?
Will Beppa discover what really took place? If you want to know, you’ll have to reach the last page of this novel.
