The
Enigma Broker
The
Enigma Series Book 8
by
Charles V. Breakfield & Roxanne E. Burkey
Genre:
Techno Thriller
 
 
Inexplicable
drops in world markets for oil, copper, coal, and other commodities
are destabilizing nations to the point of economic collapse. A
conspicuous increase in production numbers for primary oil producing
companies results in a call for help from governments and a large oil
distributor. The R-Group quietly engages amid fears that further
drops in value could devastate civilization.
Jacob
Michaels is called directly by ePetro’s Mike Patrick, CEO of the
multinational oil broker, due to some prior data and network security
he had performed. The early investigation into the production number
manipulation by Jacob, with his coworker and lover, Petra, suggests
the problem is a result of hacking by a Dark Matter Organization.
Where is the DMO operating, who is at the helm driving commodity
prices down, and how does the search evolve into a perilous hunt
which puts Jacob, Petra, and other members of R-Group directly into
the path of mortal danger!?
Hidden
leadership of the DMO is fierce and lethal when it comes to
protecting the organization and its plans of global commodities
market control. The enforcers of this agenda are quick to execute
orders without question as soon as they are issued. R-Group’s
advantage of leading technology resources, brilliant technologists,
and years of experience may not be enough to locate the genius source
bent on commodity market domination. Has cyber good versus evil from
the dark net become a challenge they simply cannot win?
The
Enigma Broker, by Breakfield and Burkey, the award-winning authors of
The Enigma Series, takes readers on a journey from the affluence of
London to the extreme poverty of Panama and everywhere in between.
The layers of planning and conspiracy by the cruel DMO supply
suspense and intrigue to the very end.
 
 

 
 

 

Breakfield
and Burkey
 started
writing non-fictional papers and books, but it wasn’t nearly as fun
as writing fictional stories.They found it interesting to use the
aspects of technology that people are incorporating into their daily
lives more and more as a perfect way to create a good guy/bad guy
story with elements of travel to the various places they have
visited, either professionally and personally, humor, romance,
intrigue,suspense, and a spirited way to remember people who have
crossed paths with them. They love to talk about their stories with
private and public book readings. Burkey is also conducting regular
radio interviews with other authors,which is interesting. Her first
interview was, wait for it, Breakfield. You can often find them at
local book fairs or other family oriented events. 

 

 

The
original series is based on a family organization called R-Group.
Recently they have spawned a subgroup that contains some of the
original characters as the Cyber Assassins Technology Services (CATS)
team. The authors have ideas for continuing the series in both of
these tracks. They track the more than 150 characters on a
spreadsheet, with a hidden avenue for the future coined The Enigma
Chronicles tagged in some portions of the stories.Fan reviews seem to
frequently suggest that these would make good television or movie
stories, so the possibilities appear endless, just like their ideas
for new stories.
They have completed
book video trailers
for each of the stories,which can be viewed on YouTube, Amazon’s
Authors page, or on their website, 
enigmabookseries.com.Their website is routinely updated with new interviews, answers to
readers’ questions, book trailers, and contests. You may also find it
fascinating to check out the fun acronyms they create for the stories
but summarize on their website.

 

Quip added with his usual comedic observation, “Yeah, I see what you mean, since no one is
interested in buying extreme religious beliefs or terrorism, which are free exports anyway. They
really do need some more viable products that are desired exports. When your only marketable
raw resource is oil, you get branded as a one-trick-pony.”
Otto and Wolfgang rolled their eyes as Wolfgang resumed, “This turn of events has added
legitimate quantities of oil to the world markets, not just bogus numbers. However after being
ostracized from the international markets for so long, their accounting practices have
deteriorated, and they do not have the appropriate measures of financial governance to
participate with other international entities. Basically, their financial checks and balances,
required to play in the global marketplace, would be like having an uneducated teenager, from
some backwater farming community, show up at a high society gala dressed in overalls while
everyone else is in tuxedos and gowns. Their size may allow them in, but they would be
hopelessly outclassed in participating with the others.”
Otto puzzled that comment for a moment and then asked, “I admit that they may not be as
sophisticated as the others of the world market, but they have legitimate product to offer. Where
are you going with this, Wolfgang?”
Wolfgang responded, “If the so-called sophisticated oil commodity traders are being
maneuvered with bogus figures, how can this fresh entrant into the marketplace expect to
compete? I believe that their systems will be so porous that whomever is boosting the other
world producers will do the same to Iran, and inflate their production numbers with yet another
quasi-legitimate oil source. Moreover, they won’t have the financial discipline to resist selling for
an ever lower dollar per barrel price. I see them playing right into the hands of this DMO.”
Quip mused, “It’s as if this conspiracy is growing legs and walking off on its own. With
everything you are seeing, perhaps we should just turn around and float downstream with the
current instead of fighting it.”
Otto and Wolfgang both turned to give Quip a hard look, as Wolfgang tersely stated, “That is
exactly what happened when the Nazi party came to power in Germany in 1933. No one
contested their illegal activities because the economy was getting boosted by the flagrant
disregard of the laws.
“Now, here we are again, things are being manipulated inappropriately, but because the results
favor me currently, why should I complain? This situation is no different, because the laws of
civilization are being violated with the end game that we all will lose. Individuals, corporations,
nations, and belligerents must be made to play by the rules, or we all end up in a world war like
1939. We are here in this place and in this time with knowledge of history that clearly illustrates
that flagrant disregard for the law cannot be tolerated. The answer is always the same; either
stop it early, or stop it later. The only difference is how much more effort it takes to stop it later.”
Quip nodded thoughtfully and quietly stated, “Point taken.”
