From the Author
As mentioned earlier I have tried to make this book as close to true hacking techniques as is possible. I wrote the book over the period of a year on the train on my way to work on my Zaurus SL-5500. If you are looking for a book that is an easy, fun read, with a couple of twists why not take a look at Z4CK.The sport of fencing also plays a part. As a fencer myself I was keen to show the exhileration, involved in the sport.

Read an Excerpt
Before him lay the concrete jungle of Edinburgh Airport. Behind him, the ongoing construction work; necessary since the bomb blast of August 2031. Billboards advertising the latest in computer technologies advised that the biggest companies always got the job done, or that Microsoft Linux was the best. This made him smile. He looked round, taking in more of his surroundings. It was now a natural instinct, something that he had nurtured over many years. The faint smile now faded from his gaunt features as he focused on the entrance: the way ahead, the start of something new.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This easy to read novel is technically placed between films such as Swordfish, and the extremely technical novel Stealing the Network. Whether you are a techy or not you'll enjoy this cyber thriller based in Scotland. The book includes a couple twists you might not expect. For those who own a Zaurus PDA you're in for a treat as Duncan attempts to clear his name through obtaining information from various enemy sources. It includes lots of wireless hacking, social engineering firewall circumvention and dumpster diving. I'd happily recommend this novel to anyone, technical, or not.
