Synopsis: Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author of The Skin Collector and The Bone Collector featuring popular forensic detective Lincoln Rhyme, delivers a masterful thriller about a psychotic computer hacker/killer packed with stunning and fact-based technical details and signature Deaver plot twists.

People in Silicon Valley are dying. 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.

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 is glad to have his chance for revenge. But when the head of the CCD, and the man who hired him, is murdered, Wyatt must report to Frank Bristol, a grizzled homicide detective who favors old-fashioned sleuthing and forensic evidence to track killers. Together, Wyatt and Bristol make an unlikely team but with the same villain in their crosshairs, they’ll have to learn to get over the generational, and technological, gaps.

Filled with accurate technical details, a “high-tension wired” (People) mystery, and shocking surprises, The Blue Nowhere will keep you guessing the outcome to the very last page.

Review: In this 21st century version of the "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral," two computer wizards engage in the kind of high-tech combat that only a hacker could love. Wyatt Gillette, a cybergenius who's never used his phenomenal talent for evil, is sitting in a California jail doing time for a few harmless computer capers when he gets a temporary reprieve--a chance to help the Computer Crimes Unit of the state police nail a cracker (a criminally inclined hacker) called Phate who's using his ingenious program, Trapdoor, to lure innocent victims to their death by infiltrating their computers. Gillette and Phate were once the kings of cyberspace--the Blue Nowhere of the title--but Phate has gone way past the mischievous electronic pranks they once pulled and crossed over to the dark side. While Trapdoor can hack its way into any computer, it's Phate's skill at "social engineering" as well as his remarkable coding ability that makes him such a menace to society. As Wyatt explains to the policeman who springs him from prison so that he can find and stop Phate before he kills again, "It means conning somebody, pretending you're someone you're not. Hackers do it to get access to data bases and phone lines and pass codes. The more facts about somebody you can feed back to them, the more they believe you and the more they'll do what you want them to."

Bestselling author Jeffery Deaver (The Empty Chair, The Devil's Teardrop) ratchets up the suspense one line of code at a time; his terrific pacing drives the narrative to a thrilling and explosive conclusion. This thriller is bound to induce paranoia in anyone who still believes he can hide his deepest secrets from anyone with the means, motive, and modem to ferret them out. --Jane Adams
