I usually enjoy Jeffrey Deaver books BUT...
on 14 October 2014
Bought the Kindle edition of this book and didn't realise how old it was, which might explain why the continual explanations of computing terms seemed somewhat archaic. Although elderly, I worked with computers every day so I'm not completely computer illiterate. The book started off very compelling but, by half way through the story, I had to resort to turning pages without reading all the explanations as I was so bored and just wanted to get back to the plot. The book could have been reduced by 25% and retained my interest throughout but instead I only finished reading it through dogged perseverance rather than enjoyment. Loved Bishop the detective a lot and Gillette the hacker a little but didn't really care about anyone else. How anyone's managed to give it 5 stars beats me!
