Review by: Angela Goss on Sep. 04, 2011 : This book was amazing. I have many books containing IT and this was right on. The suspense was so good I read it in two days, which is great for me. I can't wait for the next book. Ms Tran is my hero!!!!!
From the Author
Cyber Styletto is the first in a series of novellas that come from the minds of a technology journalist, cyber security expert, and fiction writer to chronicle the dangers on the Internet today - from hacking, to maleware, to cyber warfare. The second book in the series, scheduled to be published in summer 2012, will take an inside look at a hactivist group called Digilantes.
Cyber Stiletto is a good reading, I enjoyed it very much. The story is thrilling and characters are well developed. The cyberwar scenario is exaggerated but not to the point of becoming annoying. If you are looking for an entertaining cyber story with some cues on the current cyber concerns, this can be a good choice.
Cyber Styletto is a scary fun read. Fun, because it is fast paced with interesting characters. Scary, because the cyber security technology is real. Similar events could be caused by internet hackers, which is very frightening. The characters were well defined but on the mysterious side. I assume that future novels will give us more information about Yvonne Tran's background. At the end I wanted to know more and I look forward to the next book in the series.
This book was amazing. I have many books containing IT and this was right on. The suspense was so good I read it in two days, which is great for me. I can't wait for the next book. Ms Tran is my hero!!!!! Thanks for a wonderful read.
