Publisher's Summary

It’s two years after the Zero Day attacks, and cyber-security analyst Jeff Aiken is reaping the rewards for crippling Al-Qaida’s assault on the computer infrastructure of the Western world. His company is flourishing, and his relationship with former government agent Daryl Haugen has intensified since she became a part of his team.
But the West is under its greatest threat yet. A revolutionary, invisible trojan that alters data without leaving a trace---more sophisticated than any virus seen before---has been identified, roiling international politics. Jeff and Daryl are summoned to root it out and discover its source. As the trojan penetrates Western intelligence, and the terrifying truth about its creator is revealed, Jeff and Daryl find themselves in a desperate race to reverse it as the fate of both East and West hangs in the balance.
A thrilling suspense story and a sober warning from one of the world’s leading experts on cyber-security, Trojan Horse exposes the already widespread use of international cyber-espionage as a powerful and dangerous weapon, and the lengths to which one man will go to stop it.
Featuring a bonus interview between Mark Russinovich and Kevin Mitnick, author of Ghost in the Wires and The Art of Deception.

Unsophisticated pot boiler

I'd read the first Jett Aiken novel and had enjoyed it. Like the first one it is reasonably tightly plotted and goes along at a fair pace. However, in the first one Russinovich spent a good deal of time illustrating the effects of the loss of control of electronic systems; the tanker episode being particularly memorable. In this book he as allowed the main characters to come more to the fore which is serious mistake because they are revealed to be one dimensional stereotypes. All the Americans are heroes and all the foreigners are either stupid or evil "bad guys". The central character, Jeff, acts like he is in a video game taking on everyone who would dare to harm his girl. The narrator is fine, although his attempt at a British accent is so bad it is funny.

Too much "USA, USA" and not enough time spent on fleshing out rounded characters. A book only for those who have credits burning a hole in their pockets!

Awful and over hyped

The writing is the amongst the worst I have encounter. An error compounded by the narrators inability to pronounce certain words. Honestly avoid this as I couldn't wait for it to end.
