An autistic teenager. A ruthless assassin. An FBI agent who must risk everything to protect an innocent person from a savage.

All three are thrust together when Simon Lynch, a sixteen-year-old savant, unknowingly breaks the newest, most secure code developed by the National Security Agency. Corrupt elements within that government behemoth, determined to protect their creation, send Keiko Kimura, a beautiful and brutal terrorist, after the young man. Only FBI Special Agent Art Jefferson stands between the killer and her prey.

As though they were father and son, the bond between Art and Simon turns out to be as crucial to their survival as Art's decades of experience in the FBI. Together, they must evade their pursuers who track them through cyberspace and dog them at every turn.

The action in Simple Simon never lets up until its final, explosive conclusion.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michãel | 9/21/2012

    " Easy, fast read. One thing really bugged me-- the author often referred to the hands of the 16(!) year old boy as "small." I think he had to think of the character developmentally as a young boy because the boy was autistic-- but that wouldn't stop him from growing... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronnie | 8/3/2012

    " Excellent book which was adapted into the movie "Mercury Rising" starring Bruce Willis. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 2/11/2012

    " Good plot and a quick read. Suspenseful, but not too intricate, so it was easy to get through. Great book if you need an action book, but dont want to invest a long time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 1/11/2012

    " This was a pretty good read. A page turner....there was a lot going on. It was however, a bit....no quite gruesome at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 D'Monti | 8/24/2011

    " Not the best book, but not the worst. The story seemed haphazardly put together at some points and the constant jumping from story to story made it hard to feel anything for the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcellis | 5/16/2011

    " I didn't like how jumpy the narrative was. I felt like I never really got a chance to sit with the characters. It was an interesting story though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 3/31/2011

    " I did enjoy this story, read it because of the movie, Mercury Rising. Both the story and movie had excellent qualities and some points I didn't care for so much. On the whole I probably preferred the movie, but the book was still quite excellent; tense, with good pacing. "
