I’m writing this post while the election results are still coming in. It will get scheduled to go out in the morning, so that I can log off and watch the news the rest of this evening in a state of nail-biting mystery and intrigue along with all of you!

I have no idea if we’ll wind up seeing a blue wave or a red wave this evening. To get my mind off of the news for a minute, I wanted to share my own wave with you: the tidal wave of praise that keeps on coming in for JK’s Code! Even today, I received a new review from Sunday Times and international bestseller Adam Hamdy, whom I greatly admire and respect as an author. Shortly before that, JK’s Code received a comparison to War Games from another incredible USA Today bestselling author, Jon Land.

I am humbled, honored, and constantly grateful! 🤩📚😊 I also cannot wait to see this book enter the world in December!

JK’s Code is available in eBook, audiobook and print on December 15th, and is now available for pre-order for only $0.99! That discount will NOT last long, so click here to get in on this book bargain while you can!

“JK’s Code is tense, timely and terrific!”

Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher novels


“Keen research and high-tech suspense drives Ronald. S. Barak’s new thriller, JK’s Code; an incredibly timely political thriller about election fraud and the technology behind it, you’ll wonder where reality ends and the fiction begins.”

Brad Meltzer, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Escape Artist


“If you blended Dan Brown’s conspiratorial storytelling with Brad Meltzer’s political potboiler, you might end up with Ronald S. Barak’s JK’s Code—but the novel is all its own. Both chillingly topical and as fast as an Indy racer on ice, treat yourself to this thrill ride of a mystery.”

James Rollins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Last Odyssey


“JK’s Code is this generation’s acclaimed and influential War Games. Ronald S. Barak’s prescient, perfectly timed, and polished thriller takes current events and somehow makes them even more terrifying than they already are. Politics is no fun at all these days, unless Barak is the one writing about it. JK’s Code is a political thriller extraordinaire!”

Jon Land, USA TODAY bestselling author of the Caitlin Strong series


“Ronald S. Barak’s JK’s Code is both timely and timeless, and did I mention…terrific? Timely because election fraud is the heart of the story. Timeless because it’s a classic thriller laced with suspense and intrigue. Terrific because it brings back Judge Cyrus Brooks, homicide detective Frank Lotello and attorney Leah Klein, to aid Leah’s tech-savvy kid brother, JK, who uncovers a chilling conspiracy between the Kremlin and the White House, only to find himself in dire straits. If the raucous runup to the actual 2020 presidential election has been driving you to drink, JK’s Code will be your perfect nightcap.”

Paul Levine, #1 Amazon bestselling author of the Jake Lassiter series


“The Brooks/Lotello thriller novels are immediately likeable and pack a bone-jarring punch. In JK’s Code, an unparalleled real-time election fraud political thriller,  Barak swings for the fences and knocks it out of the park.”

Barry Lancet, award-winning author of The Spy Across The Table


“An electrifying blend of political, techno, and international thriller genres, JK’s Code is the most-timely adventure you’ll read this year. Jake ‘JK’ Klein is Ron Barak’s best hero yet, a cool young hacker able to go toe-to-toe and keyboard-to-keyboard with the nastiest and deadliest world leaders. Will JK make it through unscathed? Humorous, often satirical, and always exciting, make JK’s Code your next read.”

William Burton McCormick, 5-time Derringer Award nominee and author of Lenin’s Harem


“JK’s Code draws from the headlines of 2020 to create a political Armageddon scenario that won’t be soon forgotten. This suspenseful thriller kept me turning pages deep into the night.”

T. F. Allen, author of The Keeper and The Night Janitor


“Ron Barak delivers timely stories that capture the moment, and JK’s Code is no exception. Packed with dark humor, gripping twists and thrilling turns, the latest book in the Brooks/Lotello series is bound to keep you entertained.”

Adam Hamdy, Sunday Times and international bestselling author


“JK’s Code is a book that will captivate readers well beyond the 2020 election. With the exception of Stephen King, Barak is now the first three-time ‘best of the year’ Best Thrillers Magazine honoree. JK’s Code is a really exceptional novel. The Bottom Line: A timely, compulsively readable political and legal thriller that wryly connects the terrors of the dark web with the fragile state of democracy. One of the year’s best thrillers.”
