    A stand alone cyber thriller by Jeffery Deaver published 2001All in all a pretty good cyber thriller Given that the book is now 19 years old the computer language is a bit dated floppy disks and dial up modems but that apart it holds up really well as an entertaining readThere is a vicious serial killer on the loose and the police are always a step behind the killer No matter what they do the killer always seems to be able to predict their every move The police know that the killer is a master computer hacker and no one in computer crimes comes anywhere near to his level of brilliance At their wits end the police decide to ask Wyatt Gillette another brilliant hacker to help The only major problem is that Wyatt is in gaol serving time for cyber crimesWyatt of course jumps at the chance to be A out of gaol and B to be doing what he lives for hacking the internetWhat makes this such an interesting read is that both of the hackers are constantly writing code to lure their opponents into make a mistake that will either find the killer or in the killers cases create even death and destruction There is so much subterfuge going on that there are red herrings everywhere enough to keep most readers on their toes On the downside there’s a fair bit of technical computer talk which for the uninitiated might be a bit boringAlso what the author was proposing to happen was at that time impossible but ten years later this was not the case It never fails to amaze me how today’s science fiction often becomes tomorrow’s science factAn entertaining 4 star read

    Originally published on my blog here in October 2002Jeffrey Deaver may usually be a writer of traditional thrillers but with The Blue Nowhere he joins the small group of authors who can convincingly depict the world of the computer hacker Neal Stephenson and William Gibson being the best known of the othersThe basic plot of The Blue Nowhere is a computerised version of the Eddie Murphy film 48 Hours; a hacker is let out of prison to help the LAPD Computer Crimes Unit track down another hacker who has the screen name Phate who has turned serial killer The actual crime plot is pretty hackneyed but the computing background means that the novel is than just a run of the mill police procedural The style by the way is similar to Michael ConnellyThe one part of the plot which seems unlikely if not impossible is the program used by Phate to target the victims which is named Trapdoor Deaver admids in the acknowledgements that the experts he consulted were dubious about the way it is supposed to work Phate has cracked one of the major Internet routers and uses a steganographic and the proof reader of the novel should note the spelling of the word method to infect the target machine sending small sections of the Trapdoor program in individual IP packets which are part of the normal online communication Steganographic means hidden writing and is the process of writing a secret message as part of an innocent one say be using every twentieth character or altering specified bits of an image file To put the information into IP packets given control of a router would not be particularly difficult The problem is that once the data reaches the target computer it needs to be separated out from the genuine information re assembled and then executed and I can't see any way that this could be done barring serious bugs in the IP stack and operating system of the computer being attacked This is essentially the same reason that a virus spread as an email attachment is not activated unless the user or operating system is conned into executing opening the attachment computers need a reason to run a piece of software The reasons that systems are vulnerable to cracking are generally attributable to human carelessness such things as users writing down passwords or using obvious words or bugs in software which can be exploitedSince the Trapdoor program is important to the plot this is something of a problem; yet the convincing nature of the rest of the setting makes it easy enough to suspend disbelief and enjoy the novel

    The Blue Nowhere is my fourth Jeffery Deaver read and it has confirmed my belief that I will have a love hate relationship with Jeffery Deaver’s work My first Jeffery Deaver read Mistress of Justice was a big disappointment Retrospect has me believing I was too kind with my three star rating yet at the time I was feeling generous and gave it such a rating because it promised potential fun Jeffery Deaver reads My second Jeffery Deaver read Edge was much enjoyable I devoured Edge finding myself addicted to the story and in need of My third Jeffery Deaver read Speaking in Tongues was another disappointment Like my first book I was generous with my three star rating yet it could have just as easily been a two star rating if my mood had been different At this point I was uestioning how willing I was to dive into Jeffery Deaver – but with of his books on my shelf I brought a handful in a sale I decided it wouldn’t hurt to give him another tryFrom the very start I knew The Blue Nowhere was going to follow the path of Edge This story sucked me in instantly and I found myself than willing to keep turning the pages to see how everything came together In fact I found myself desperately turning the pages so sucked in that I was willing to finish this story in a single sittingIt was one of those stories that kept you guessing throwing out a lot of information that left you with notions in your mind of what was to come I worked out some but not all of the details and I loved the way things came together with this one There was so much we got to watch unfold so many elements to watch come together The crime had me hooked and so did the characters leaving me than willing to keep turning the pagesThat is not to say this book was perfect but it was a really enjoyable read I think the biggest issue I had with this one was in relation to the explanations I know not everyone will understand all the computer speak that occurs throughout this one but I feel as though some things were explained needlessly This may be a reflection of this book now being a bit dated – I think we can all agree people are better educated in regards to technology than they were fifteen or so years ago – or it could just be that Jeffery Deaver felt it was necessary to explain every single detail Either way this was the main thing that I had trouble with but it wasn’t enough to stop my enjoyment of the storyOverall this was an enjoyable read I’m hoping my next Jeffery Deaver read proves to be as enjoyable yet a part of me fears the emerging pattern foretells of a less than enjoyable read Whatever the case at least I enjoyed The Blue Nowhere

    This was the first book by this author that I have read after a work colleague recommended it to me about 2 years ago Having finally got round to reading it I found myself really enjoying it It is a very very scary look at the world for cyberspace and IT in general I work in IT and it scared me a lotThe story's main character is Gillette who is hacker He starts off the book in prison for hacking into the Department of Defence computers and allegedly running a piece of software that could encrypt their 'unbreakable' Standard 12 software The police are after a hacker by the name of Phate who is hacking into people's computers finding out information about them and then killing them and his assistant Shawn The police know that the only way catch Phate is to play him at his own game Enter Gillette The level of detail and knowledge in is book is brilliant There is a very modern fear that we will all be `hacked' and that people can find out a lot of information about us and Deaver has exploited our fear very well The thing that makes this book so scary is that you can actually see this happening This could be a possibilityI don't agree with other reviewers opinions that if you are not a `computer person' you should not read this book I think this book will appeal to everyone regardless of your level of computer knowledgeThis book gripped me from the start and I thoroughly enjoyed it I will now seek out of this books

    I really enjoyed this book so many years after it was published Even though technology is advancing so rapidly in our time this book still feels relevant Of course the use of floppy disks is rather outdated But Deaver created a protagonist that I really liked and an extremely formidable antagonist which greatly contributed to the story As you would expect of a Deaver novel it is full of twists and turns and it will keep you hooked to the last page

    Againjust like Phillip Margolin there are flaws in this story BUT that's an awful big but you have there I will not delve into those things because this is a work of fiction and is meant to entertain So my analytical mind will step back into the shadows and let my critical mind have it's sayThere is a killer on the loose in Silicon Valley and he's not like any other killer out there He's a computer hacking genius So what does the police force do to help them catch this clever killer? They release a fellow hacker from federal prison to help them catch this guy before the next victim falls Little does our convicted felon know our hacker killer has his eyes set on him to be the next victimThis is a fairly fast paced mysterythriller that keeps you guessing til the very end Overlooking the flawed details of this incredible story I did find it enjoyable and entertaining So a hefty 4 star rating is what it's worth

    I liked it Really liked it The reason I haven’t gave it a 5 stars is because I think that at the moments some things could have been done faster 45 stars
