One of the great strengths of the book is its detail in the descriptions of high tech processes, from the way a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack can be mounted, to the ways corporations protect their systems, how people meet on the Darknet, and even paying with Bitcoin. Another world unfolds before our eyes, a world in which practically anything is possible, if you know which keys to press.
But the geeky stuff is leavened with snarky humor throughout as well. Laugh-out-loud situations and comments abound, even as the situation grows more and more desperate for Clint Masters.
The CIA is deeply involved too, and this is central to the story, but as in all the classic Le Carré or Baldacci thrillers, their support is anything but unconditional. Ultimately Masters has to battle the demons on his own, leading to a sensational, unforgettable finish. Anyone looking for a gripping high tech thriller set in today’s complicated world need look no further.
Write on, Helen.
The books are well paced. Characters are believable. The stories are told without the need for excruciatingly detailed descriptions of scenarios or tools of the trade. They are enjoyable reads.
I am torn between the need to read the next book in the series(which is being written) and the realization that I want Ms. Hanson to stick to her own timetable and winning formula in generating the next few.
I took a ten year ride with JK Rowling. Here is hoping I can do the same with Helen Hanson
