The Lead Cloak

The Lead Cloak Summary

In the future, privacy is a thing of the past.

"Staggeringly smart… Hanberg's expertly honed storytelling is sleek and fast… [an] entertaining tale." —Kirkus Reviews

Nevada, 2081. Colonel Byron Shaw safeguards the world’s innermost secrets. From a control center in Area 51, he monitors the expansive surveillance system that once saved him certain death at the hands of ruthless kidnappers. But not everyone trusts technology that peers through strangers’ eyes, so it’s no shock when a guerrilla attack nearly wipes out the network and spills his blood.

Tasked with tracking down the terrorist cell, Byron sets off on a globe-spanning chase that brings him to the outer edge of Earth’s atmosphere. But as he infiltrates their ranks, a growing suspicion about the system that preserved his own life could sabotage civilization.

Torn between duty and doubt, one man’s decision could rewire humanity’s future.

The Lead Cloak is a tech-savvy sci-fi adventure novel. If you like high-stakes action, thought-provoking dystopian themes, and gripping twists, then you’ll love Erik Hanberg’s cerebral page-turner.

Good read4 star

I enjoyed it45


Vast reduced to pinpoint still vast5 star

It’s not often that you get the whole picture resting on a molecule. Lots of science made deceptively simple - or rather allowed to underwhelm while still spinning all the brain receptors. Power guy’s tech, Resistance guy’s tech… no easy answers… therefore… the first day of the next book… because this evolution just became a whole picture… vast and resting on???55
