People in Silicon Valley are dying, at the hands of a psychotic and brilliant computer hacker, code named PHATE. He infiltrates their computer, invades their lives, and then -- with the perfect line, the perfect, personal detail, lures them to their deaths.Desperate, the head of the Computer Crimes Division frees Wyatt Gillette, imprisoned on his own hacking charge, to aid the investigation. Gillette has wrangled with PHATE before, and so gladly cooperates. But when the man who enlists his help, the head of the CCD, is murdered, Wyatt must report to Frank Bristol, a grizzled old homicide detective who's used to old-fashioned sleuthing and forensic evidence to track killers. Together, Wyatt and Bristol make an unlikely team -- a pairing that is at times ludicrously mis-matched. But with the same villain in their cross-hairs, they'll have to learn to get over the generational, and technological, gaps.Filled with stunning -- and fact-based -- technical details, The Blue Nowhere is truly Deaver for the 21st Century. And, of course, there are the signature Deaver plot twists that will keep you guessing the outcome to the very last page.
