“Trident Code is scary good. The science and technology are as convincing as they are chilling, with an original trifecta of cyber, nuclear, and environmental terrorism all worked into one wild ride of a plot. And hoo boy, you’ll love to hate Oleg the Russian mastermind, who is cleverly creepy and unforgettable. Thomas Waite has big ambitions—and delivers on them.” —Dale Dauten, King Features syndicated columnist
“Trident Code is a powerful and nerve-tingling tale, and its authenticity is right up there with Tom Clancy. Waite gives us brilliant storytelling and a real winner of a book.” —Vice Admiral N.R. Thunman, U.S. Navy (retired) and former Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Submarine Warfare
"Waite does a bang-up job of building an exhilarating, wholly believable story by blending kinetic warfare—the traditional blood and guts kind—and cyber warfare. And he let's you see it all through the eyes of characters who feel as real as their expertise. Cyber security is my field, and this tale is a thrill ride of a cyber storm.” —Benjamin Johnson, Chief Security Strategist, Bit9 + Carbon Black
About the Author
Thomas Waite is a bestselling author of cyberthrillers. His debut novel, Terminal Value, was critically praised and reached #1 at Amazon. One reviewer wrote, “I believe with time he will be called the John Grisham of the murderous technology novels. This is an excellent beginning to, what I hope is, a long writing career for Mr. Waite.” His second novel, Lethal Code, is widely acclaimed, most notably by Hank Phillippi Ryan, the Agatha, Anthony, and Mary Higgins Clark Award–winning author of Truth Be Told: “Taut, tense, and provocative, this frighteningly knowing cyberthriller will keep you turning pages—not only to devour the fast-paced fiction, but to worry about how much is terrifyingly true.” Trident Code is the second novel in Waite’s Lana Elkins Thriller series. Waite is the board director of, and an advisor to, a number of technology companies. His nonfiction work has appeared in the New York Times and the Harvard Business Review. He lives in Boston.
"Nobody can accuse Thomas Waite of thinking small, so if you're looking for a fast, awe-inspiring thriller brimming with cybercrime, environmental disaster, and human dilemmas, the only question about Trident Code is—can you think big enough?” —Clare O’Beara, Fresh Fiction

With an original trifecta of cyber, nuclear, and environmental terrorism combined with wrenching modern human dilemmas, Trident Code is a refreshing reboot of the thriller genre. And you’ll absolutely love to hate the evil mastermind Oleg, a fully contemporary Russian villain.
If you’re like me and you’ve grown tired of the old-school, predictable, formulaic books from writers like Patterson, Baldacci, DeMille, Preston, Child, and Finder, I recommend you give Waite a try. You won’t be disappointed.
Lana Elkins, the NSA contractor from Lethal Code, risks her life in multiple ways in this novel to save the day, including populations on the East and West Coasts of the U.S. and other cities and countries around the globe already suffering from rapidly rising sea levels. How can further damage be prevented, and what may happen if it isn't? Tom Waite delivers on another shockingly possible terrorist scenario.
The novel is well-researched and the writing first-rate. Lots to think about here, and we should all be mindful of things that COULD happen and be as prepared as we can.
