Summary:

Jeffery Deaver, bestselling author of The Empty Chair and The Bone Collector, now turns to the labyrinthine world of cyberspace -- a world where the most powerful can lose their wealth, their minds, their lives with a hacker's touch of a button.
When a sadistic hacker, code-named Phate, sets his sights on Silicon Valley, his victims never know what hit them. He infiltrates their computers, invades their lives, and lures them to their deaths. To Phate, each murder is like a big, challenging computer hack: every time he succeeds, he must challenge himself anew -- by taking his methodology to a higher level, and aiming at bigger targets.
Desperate, the head of The California State Police Computer Crimes Division frees Wyatt Gillette, imprisoned for hacking, to aid the investigation -- against the loud protests of the rest of the division. With an obsession emblematic of hackers, Gillette fervently attempts to trace Phate's insidious computer virus back to its source. Then Phate delivers a huge blow, murdering one of the division's own -- a 'wizard' who had pioneered the internet -- and the search takes on a zealous intensity.
Gillette and Detective Frank Bishop -- an old-school homicide cop who's accustomed to forensic sleuthing -- make an uneasy team. But with a merciless and brilliant killer like Phate in their crosshairs, and his twisted game reaching a fever pitch, they must utilize every ounce of their disparate talents to stop him.

    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.
