Grandfather Anonymous, Book 1 in the Old Code series.

Elderly, unarmed, and extremely dangerous.

Ajay Andersen was the best hacker the NSA had ever hired. He sank corporations, toppled governments, and broke cryptography. All of it. Retirement hasn’t slowed him down one bit, thank you very much.

When his granddaughters are threatened, he’s going to need to step it up a notch. He’ll infiltrate biotech corporations, hack criminal enterprises, and subvert ubiquitous surveillance. Ajay will do anything to keep his family safe, but the more he digs, the more he dredges up the shadows of his own dangerous past.

He only needs to know one thing:

What makes his granddaughters so darn dangerous?
