The Blue Nowhere is that rare cyberthriller that doesn't make us want to log off in the middle.

San Francisco Chronicle

Deaver packs The Blue Nowhere with enough twists and surprises that even the most alert reader will be gulled by the numerous red herrings and narrative decoys....He has the language of technology down cold, but thankfully, never goes over the reader's head. Think of a technical manual with intrigue, fights, chases, and double-crosses. And there's no need to reboot.

How do you write a truly gripping thriller about people staring into computer screens? Many have tried, none have succeeded -- until now....As he twists suspense and tension to gigahertz levels, Deaver springs an astonishing number of surprises....His real triumph is to make the hacker world come alive in all its midnight, reality-cracking intensity. This novel is, in hacker lingo, "totally moby" -- the most exciting and most vivid fiction yet about the neverland hackers call 'The Blue Nowhere.'
