The Blue Nowhere will forever change the way you feel about your computer. Jeffery Deaver, bestselling author of The Empty Chair and The Bone Collector, now turns to the labyrinthine world of cyberspace -- a world where safety is elusive, appearances are deceiving, and the most powerful can lose their wealth, their minds, their lives with a hacker's touch of a button. When a sadistic hacker, code-named Phate, sets his sights on Silicon Valley, his victims never know what hit them. He infiltrates their computers, invades their lives, and -- with chilling precision -- lures them to their deaths. To Phate, each murder is like a big, challenging computer hack: every time he succeeds, he must challenge himself anew -- by taking his methodology to a higher level, with bigger targets. Desperate, the head of The California State Police Computer Crimes Division frees Wyatt Gillette, imprisoned for hacking, to aid the investigation -- against the loud protests of the rest of the division. With an obsession emblematic of hackers, Gillette fervently attempts to trace Phate's insidious computer virus back to its source. Then Phate delivers a huge blow, murdering one of the division's own, and the search takes on a zealous intensity. Gillette and Detective Frank Bishop, an old-school homicide cop who's accustomed to forensic sleuthing, at first make an uneasy team. But with a merciless and brilliant killer like Phate in their crosshairs, they must utilize every ounce of their disparate talents to stop him. Hot on the trail of the New York Times bestseller The Empty Chair, The Blue Nowhere once again demonstrates that Deaver is the master of ticking-bomb suspense(People).

A really, really enjoyable read from the masterfully devious Deaver. The book was written in 2001 and though it may seem dated, I think it exhibits a certain prescience. Just when you think you have it figured out, Deaver blows up the plot in your face and blows you away. It's off the beaten track for the author but it's delightful and delectable.

I really enjoyed this book. If you're into computers you will probably find something to appeal to you in it. Fast-paced, interesting plot, and a pretty good unexpected turn at the end

I like the author but can't relate to
cyberspace, so suggest patrons
read the description first.

Fans of Jeffery Deaver ? and those who haven't yet had the pleasure of enjoying his books ? will definitely add this novel to their "recommended reading" list. An excellent thriller that takes readers into the world of computers and the subculture known only to hackers (or krackers). Not at all techno-heavy ? anyone who's ever booted up a Mac or PC and run a program or cruised the Internet will be familiar with the computer jargon used in the novel. Of course, the book comes complete with all the twists and turns and unexpected outcomes that Deaver readers love in his books. But hurry ? like the technology it's based on, the book itself may become outdated: characters loading software to thwart a virus still use 3.5" floppy discs? no CD discs, 2G flashes or USB ports.
