Published Author Steve Burkart Shares His Second Riveting Novel: “The Master Hacker”


“The Master Hacker” is the second exciting espionage novel of the Chadeaux Trilogy crafted by the author, Steve Burkart, who was a former Counterintelligence Agent in Europe during and shortly after the Cold War.

There are hackers, and there is THE hacker … the one who can end warfare as we know it, or start a war only she can win. When SunHee Nham, a disaffected North Korean computer scientist working in China, decides to escape her conscription, she takes a few secrets with her. Her dream of living in freedom in the U.S. begins to prey on her mind when she thinks about the hardships under which her fellow countrymen are forced to live.

After a chance meeting with John Darque, the head of a covert organization charged with maintaining the balance of power in the world, the two form a partnership to destroy a weapon system she developed for use against Western nations. When she becomes aware of pursuing Chinese agents, she knows her freedom will be short-lived. To make matters worse, she realizes her association with Darque’s group will put it in danger of being exposed.

SunHee’s noticeable depression changes for the better when Darque poses a plan to turn the tables on a group of rogue nations intent on using the technologies she developed to blackmail the rest of the world. She agrees to help Darque with his plan in the hope that the results will create the spark of change needed to better the lives of her countrymen. However, with change comes sacrifice, and sometimes the price of sacrifice can be very high.

“The Master Hacker” was named by the Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group as one of the best indie books of 2018, and selected as a finalist in the action/adventure (fiction) category in the 2018 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

The Chadeaux Trilogy is a compelling series of stories that will take readers through harrowing situations and plot twists that create a riveting ‘can’t-put-the-book-down’ experience.

About the Author:
Steve spent 10 of his 22-year military career in Europe in Military Intelligence, and has in-depth personal knowledge of Counterintelligence activities during the 1980s, often referred to as ‘the decade of the spies.’

The knowledge he acquired, and the achievements he accomplished during his career, make him well-qualified to write “The Darque Side,” his third novel.
