Apr 21, John Blair rated it did not like it. Apparently I am part of a very small contingent that needs te details to actually be correct. No one in IT speaks that way. Phate has cracked one of the major Internet routers, and uses a steganographic and the proof reader of the novel should note the spelling of the word method to infect the target machine, sending small sections of the Trapdoor program in individual IP packets which are part of the normal online communication.

There is little doubt that there is a spy in the investigation, though who it is Deaver does not let you know and you can guarantee if you think you know you will be wrong. Being written in is not an excuse for blatantly over the top technical blunders.

Detailed Review Summary of The Blue Nowhere by Jeffery Deaver

I don’t think anyone will figure that out: The Blue Nowhere is about a psychotic computer hacker who goes by the name of Phate, who hacks into people’s computer databases, invading their personal lives, posing as another being and leading his victims to their deaths. In fact, I found myself glue turning the pages, so sucked in that I was willing to finish this story in a single sitting. Based on a reference from a friend who knew of our lengthy career nwhere real computer mainframes, we were afraid the computer terminology might be at the 4th grade level or else totally fictional and unreal.

Aug 01, Fred Forbes rated it really liked it. I’m labeling this under spoiler just in blye. They know he has jeffsry agenda and their aim is to get to him before he kills again. He uses his program Trapdoor to enter any computer system he wishes to go into. Two people are always better than one. He portrays a frightening scenario of crimes committed by computer hackers. But not for this reader. By accessing linked computers he is able to ” engineer” his identity changing grades, occupation, references, ownership, etc.


However still this book is good for b,ue who are interested in computer, hacking, and the internet because in my opinion, someone who is not much knowledgeable in the area might find a hard time following the story and picturing what are the characters especially Gilette are doing.

A predictable group including cops and hackers are in pursuit of a killer using social engineering to get close Sandy was fifteen minutes late.

The story is set in the late 90s in and around the Silicon Valley, and Deaver does a good job setting just the right tone for the hacker and computer industry culture blus that Internet bubble period — I wish I had read it when it first came out, but I jefvery it tedious and laughable by turns right now.

His real triumph, though, is to make the hacker world come alive in all its midnight, reality-cracking intensity. My first Jeffery Deaver read, Mistress of Justice, was a big disappointment.

Phate, the killer’s screen name, kills because he thinks of it as all a big MUD game, and keeps track of the points he gets for each successful kill. He even takes the time to provide little historic tidbits regarding the evolution of computing. She made a reservation at eight.

Overlooking the flawed details of this incredible story, I did find it enjoyable and entertaining. But the vehicle turned out to be a white Ford Explorer with a young couple inside. A mysterious, psychotic, and brilliant computer hacker, code-named Phate, is infiltrating their computer, invading their lives, and—with the perfect line, the perfect, personal detail—luring them to their deaths.


Of course, if you’ paranoid, this book will really get you going, because Phate has created a program called Vlue that permits him to enter your computer and collect all the information stored therein and then use that data to his own nefarious purposes.

Since I bought 2 boxes of books unseen, I am always pleased when one is from a known author.

There is a killer on the loose in Silicon Valley and he’s not like any other killer out there. His books are sold in countries and translated into 25 languages. On the good-guy side, the recruited hacker is Wyatt Gillette a. There he learns intimate details about his intended bowhere and ultimately murders them. Jeffery Deaver is best known in literary circles as a crime novelist.

Computers are everything to Wyatt Gillette, but because of computers the brilliant hacker has lost everything: This could be a possibility. As was the custom in the s, self-proclaimed hackers gave themselves nicknames. While we think some of the hacking described is a little far-fetched, deaer concerned about identity theft and similar “new age” white-collar crime will find much to think about here as well.

TrapDoor is a fictionalized tool that phate develops to track his victims and enemies. However, the true identity of the mole inside the police draver who notifies Phate of developments is a great plot twist.
