Library Journal Review

Computer security theorist Derek Vandeveer's life changes utterly after the events of 9/11 awaken the country to a new and urgent need for tighter security. Leaving his cushy job in the private sector for a secret government agency charged with increasing the security of cyberspace, Vandeveer becomes caught up in a seemingly fruitless search to uncover the source of an attack on an ultra classified satellite. Like fellow cyberpunk veteran William Gibson, Sterling (Zeitgeist; Tomorrow Now) turns his attention to the very near future in a tale of one man's persistent struggle to perceive the truth in a world choked by deception and betrayal. Combining up-to-the-minute technology with engaging characters and a clear vision of tomorrow, this highly recommended work belongs in most sf and general fiction collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
