Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyed it immensely Well writtten, keeps you interested as the players become aware of each other and the risks increase. This book unfolds like a work of fiction, providing plot twists and exploration of the motivations of early hackers. Very entertaining, simplifies techno-babble for those that don't know what a "switch" is. I only wish the book was longer!
