good read

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.

A Yarn for Old School Computer Geeks

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.

One of the worst books I've ever read

I work in information security and enjoy books on the subject both fiction and non-fiction. This book somehow made a list of must read fiction books for IS professionals. It has no business whatsoever being on ANY must read list. The story is beyond ridiculous. I found myself literally laughing out loud during different points in the book. Fortunately I only paid $5 for it, listened to it while exercising so time wasn't wasted listening to it, and listened to it at 1.5x speed to get to the end faster.

This tells you all you need to know. The super hacker in the book uses Windows and doesn't encrypt data at rest. There's so much more that clearly shows the author knows very little about IS but that gives you a good idea of what you're in for if you buy this book. Don't waste your time or money.

Good But A Couple Flaws

Note that this book about super-hacking was written in 2001 so some of the tech has changed. Also, there were a lot of red herrings and a few plot twists that were pretty far out. Still I enjoyed the book, especially the main characters, Frank Bishop and Wayne Gsomebody (how quickly we forget!).

At least one of the voices used by the narrator was annoying, but the rest was fine.

So I marked 4s because it was better than average. But minor flaws kept it from being great.
