Suspense maestro Jeffery Deaver takes a well-researched look into the world of computer hackerswithout sacrificing any of the pulse-racing suspense and surprising plot twists hes known for.

Wyatt Gillette, perhaps the worlds second greatest hacker, is sprung from prison to help the police find the mysterious computer genius (codename Phate) who has begun killing innocents he targets via computer. But with some clever social engineering, Phate stays elusive thanks to myriad false identities.

The amazing hacking abilities of both Gillette and Phate reveal a near-frightening world where almost any feat is possible with access to a phone and/or computer. Readers minds will be racing to discover who or where Phate may pop up nextbut the incomparable Deaver will fool them every time. (Now available, 432 pp., $26.00)
