A fast paced story with several intense build ups to speedy action. This book saw action in Spain and America. Plenty of trails to suspects for the reader to follow. Some complex mathematical sequences and problems to solve. Codes and code breaking being at the heart of the storyline. A huge computer gets a code to break and threatens national security. The key to abort the worm which penetrates the system outwits the top encrypting brains and the suspense goes to the wire. Fewer links to ancient texts and secrets than some of Dan’s other books, but still enjoyable.
This book is a thriller revolving around some brilliant computer hacking. The edition that I read was printed in 2001 and it is amazing how fast the computer world has moved on, some of the computer vocab is now used everyday just 12 years later. The storyline was brilliant with lots of twists and turns, it actually got inside my head just like a hacker might get inside your computer. Scary to see just how much a hacker could do and the ends to which hackers will go for the ultimate fix.
