Imagine yourself in a bar. A man approaches you. He doesn't seem familiar but he knows your past, your job, your hobbies and your ex-boyfriend's name. You go for a drink.

This is your first – and last – mistake. You're the latest victim of the latest killer. A man who can rip away the thin carapace protecting the secrets of your life – before ending it.

Streetwise cop Frank Bishop has been charged with the job of halting the mounting body count. He enlists the help of Wyatt Gillette, a young hacker who himself has fallen on the wrong side of the law. They must stalk this faceless criminal through both the real and the virtual universe, combining their old and new world skills to beat this mastermind. But how do you stop a man who knows your every move?

You go into the blue nowhere . . .

Reviews

Once again diplays his penchants for multiple false endings . . . This is the most ambitious attempt yet to turn computer crime into fiction . . . Deaver's customary brilliant plotting
The Sunday Times

His real triumph, though, is to make the hacker world come alive in all its midnight, reality-cracking intensity
