The menacing musical interlude that opens this book appropriately foreshadows what is to come. In the voice of the classic private eye, Dennis Boutsikaris keenly reveals the dark world of crime in cyberspace and its inhabitants. Social engineering is the focus of the story, and Boutsikaris is astute to the twists and turns of the antagonist and his machine world, which make this high-tech thriller exciting. The narrator's smooth delivery of the technical explanations of computer wizardry enhance the story without getting off track. Characterizations and dramatic scenes are also well done. This performance easily manages to keep your ear on the edge of the tape as Phate tries to take over the cyberworld. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
