In Denial: Code Red is a fictional look at the consequences of the failure of the internet and communications. Dreamers Jacques Tetu and Stephane Creusat, a quadriplegic, have created the first exponential, quantum computing secure, identity based cryptosystem that can secure the Internet and eliminate cyber crime. They sustain themselves with a security consulting business and by teaching security courses at a local technical college. Unbeknownst to them, they are at the center of an international maelstrom and operatives from the global superpowers are trying to steal the technology to further their own cyber warfare goals. In the murky world of cybersecurity, defense and intelligence, Tetu is unable to see that the endless roadblocks driving his business and technology into the ditch are being orchestrated by governments and unscrupulous business competitors. Endless legal costs, punitive tax policies, and professional intrigue are relentless and Tetu breaks down under the pressure and develops 'logic cataracts.' He cannot understand why their breakthrough technology is not being adopted. In a stunt that even he could not have originally imagined, Tetu goes to Europe on vacation and unleashes a factoring utility that neuters the global defense public key systems and unleashes a Denial of Service attack designed to cripple internet commerce for five days. Tetu quickly discovers he is out of his league when his cyber attacks are stolen and controlled by someone else. With the help of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police love interest, and in crypto-anagram communications with his business partner Stephane, Jacques barely stays a step ahead of the bodies piling up behind him across Europe and North America as he tries to get back home to Vancouver in an effort to stop his own cyber attack. Global critical communication infrastructures experience a cascading collapse sending societies into chaos and posing the greatest threat of nuclear war ever.
