It's two years after the Zero Day attacks, and cyber-security analyst Jeff Aiken is reaping the rewards for crippling Al-Qaida's assault on the computer infrastructure of the Western world. His company is flourishing, and his relationship with former government agent Daryl Haugen has intensified since she became a part of his team.
But the West is under its greatest threat yet. A revolutionary, invisible trojan that alters data without leaving a trace

more sophisticated than any virus seen before

has been identified, roiling international politics. Jeff and Daryl are summoned to root it out and discover its source. As the trojan penetrates Western intelligence, and the terrifying truth about its creator is revealed, Jeff and Daryl find themselves in a desperate race to reverse it as the fate of both East and West hangs in the balance.

    After finishing Zero Day, I was hoping that this would show improvements/maturity over the previous book. I found it to be a fair follow up, but I found the story a bit sparse and the excitement didn't build well. A good techno thriller that gets the details right (to an IT guy) but I wouldn't put this next to a Daniel Suarez or Tom Clancy novel as far as story or character development. I just didn't get as engaged/drawn in. Just seems a bit...lacking.
