She figured that it would be two minutes before one of these boys approached her and she missed that estimate by only ten seconds. This was the first book by this author that I have read after a work colleague recommended it to me about 2 years ago.
To Phate, each murder is like a big, challenging computer hack: However, it seems unlikely that a crime novelist could develop that attack blueprint without talking to somebody who is at least thinking about how it might be done. I’m labeling this under spoiler just in case. You didnt know that? But besides that, this is a really good story. With his skills, Phate can not only change identities at will a knack known as “social engineering” in hacking parlance but can manipulate all computerized records about himself.
Nor was it across the street in the Apple Computer lot or the one next to it, belonging to Sun Microsystems. Gillette, Bishop, the unsympathetic Shelton and a team of computer specialists go on a manhunt for the serial killer Phate, with the dual mission of preventing further murders and eventually apprehending the killer.
As was the custom in the s, self-proclaimed hackers gave themselves nicknames. And if anybody’s wondering where the title Blue Nowhere comes into play, it supposedly represents online space.

He’s Wyatt Gillette, coveting Pop-Tarts the hacker’s meal of choice and computers, but also the wife he lost when he went to prison—and it’s his tortured personality that gives this novel its heart as Wyatt is sprung from prison, but only for as long as it takes to track down Phate.
A brilliant programmer, a cracker someone who breaks into another computer to do damage as opposed to a hacker who just breaks in to poke around for the thrill of beating the system is killing people and the Computer Crimes Unit relaizes they are in way over their heads.
This story sucked me in instantly, and I found myself more than willing to keep turning the pages to see how everything came together. Still, the pages flew by and I found it one of his better offerings The police know that he has crossed a boundary; he is using his jefffry now, not just for amusement, but to lure victims to their deaths. During the 80s and 90s, many of the same people who were involved in the hacking community were also involved in the gaming community. Its like a bunch of almost-facts, deaverr a tech-speak blender that scrambled everything until very little of it felt remotely real anymore.
His real triumph, though, is to make the hacker world come alive in all its midnight, reality-cracking intensity. 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.

All told, we find more than ample reasons to pursue other Deaver works. Th Again,just like Phillip Margolin, there are flaws in this story BUT that’s an awful big but you have thereI will not delve into those things because this is a work of fiction and is meant to entertain.
There is a killer on the loose in Silicon Valley and he’s not like any other killer out there. Jeffrey 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 others.
And yet as Lara was about to ask Will Randolph to walk her to her car after they got the snapshots she had a thought: There’s an unnecessary subplot about Wyatt trying to get back his estranged ex-wife that goes nowhere.
Even though technology is advancing so rapidly in our time, this book still feels relevant. This could be a possibility. Married men with children are safer than single men. These two sported the blue cards of Sun Microsystems.
