But, be that as it may, it was a blhe “page turner” of an audio book. I enjoyed it from start to finish. As good as the book was, it felt kind of outdated, where it was written in the very early ‘s, with the use of floppy discs, and early cell phone’s, and hacking into other people’s computers, but other than that I loved the characters and the plot.

It seems to have been very thoroughly researched and believably written. Die Figuren sind in meinen Augen jefery und realistisch beschrieben. The story is set in the late 90s in and around the Silicon Valley, and Deaver does a good job setting just the right tone for the hacker and computer industry culture during that Internet bubble period — I mean, in real life I have no sympathy not “little sympathy” but no sympathy for people who think the rest of us exist to give them playthings and will gleefully have fun, fun, fun, digging through our lives and even ruining our lives He sees the world as a global computer game searching for difficult targets to kill.


Deaver gets the technical details right describing real-world and fictional tools that each hacker uses to best the other. Never feel too embarrassed or proud to ask for help. And Triple X would have been prepared.

Jeffrey Deavers portrays these souls as addicts in the same vein as alcoholics. His real triumph, though, is to make the hacker world come alive in all its midnight, reality-cracking intensity. They seemed more like supporting characters to me.
