Summary:

People in Silicon Valley are dying, at the hands of a psychotic and brilliant computer hacker, code named PHATE. He infiltrates their computer, invades their lives, and then -- with the perfect line, the perfect, personal detail, lures them to their deaths.

Desperate, the head of the Computer Crimes Division frees Wyatt Gillette, imprisoned on his own hacking charge, to aid the investigation. Gillette has wrangled with PHATE before, and so gladly cooperates. But when the man who enlists his help, the head of the CCD, is murdered, Wyatt must report to Frank Bristol, a grizzled old homicide detective who's used to old-fashioned sleuthing and forensic evidence to track killers. Together, Wyatt and Bristol make an unlikely team -- a pairing that is at times ludicrously mis-matched. But with the same villain in their cross-hairs, they'll have to learn to get over the generational, and technological, gaps.

Filled with stunning -- and fact-based -- technical details, The Blue Nowhere is truly Deaver for the 21st Century. And, of course, there are the signature Deaver plot twists that will keep you guessing the outcome to the very last page.

    I am now a Deaver fan. I have added some of his other books to see where it goes. Keeps you on the edge of your seat.

    You do not have to be a computer nerd to again this novel. Deaver has fashioned a tightly scripted, fast pace suspense novel that uses technology as its fulcrum. His character of Wyatt Gillette is a fascinating young man with a computer addiction.

    It was another murder mystery but with computer jargon. I almost understood everything but my nerd son helped me and I recommended the book to him. I like Deaver and this was not his best but I did enjoy it. High tech for me.

  • Dan Pressley

    This book might have been good had it not been the abridged version. The plot jumped so suddenly and things happened that made no sense. I thought perhaps I had just missed a part but going back to re-listen to the section, I found no explanation for it. There was just too much coincidence and unrealistic happenings in this book to the point that it got on my nerves. I finally had to stop listening and move on to another book.

  • Beth Paquette

    Okay this was not the best book by Jeffrey Deaver. I enjoyed the story to a point. Didn't leave much to the imagination or keep you guessing.

  • Dina Mac

    Not being a hacker, I didn't understand all of the computer wizardry, but I loved this book despite my inadequacies. Highly recommend it.
