We take long trips at least once per month, and look forward to our "reads". We hadn't listened to Jeffry Deaver in at least 2 years, and were happy to find another book of his on Audible. We were not disappointed. The trip went by in a flash. Well developed characters, suspenseful and not too dark, although Deaver comes right up to the edge, and several surprises along the way.

Jeffery Deaver write novels that turn your head inside out and keep you guessing. This book is no different. The difference is that this tale takes inside of the world of hackers. It's true that this world is a bit dated, but that makes no less fascinating to newbies or those who remember those days fondly.
Wyatt Gillette is addicted to computers and the internet. It lands him in prison. But there is a killer out there who speaks the language Gillette speaks and Detective Frank Bishop needs Gillette to find him. The story is fast faced and doesn't let up for a minute. It's a great read, read well by William Dufris. Check it out and enjoy!

This is the best book I have ever read or listened to. I have this book in hard copy, tape, CD and now digital. The story is well thought out and the plot is amazing. After the hundreds of books I have read and listened to, I still come back to The Blue Nowhere. Thank you Jeffery Deaver.

This book was written in 2001 but Audible lists a much later date. (I have never figured out how this happens, but Audible often cites a release/pub date years and years after the actual date, leading the buyer to believe a book is much more recent than it actually is.) Anyway, the language and narration style seem ancient, the characters are uninterestingly dorky, and the dialogue is either stilted or silly. If you are in the mood for a good, very old crime story, Macbeth is much more interesting.
As someone who works in IT this book was amazing. I find it humorous and fun that it obviously took place in the 90s or very early 00 don’t let that discourage you. Half of the book felt like a climax and it kept my mind racing till the last second
