Here is "a real-life tale of cops vs. hackers, by two technology writers with a flair for turning a complicated crime and investigation into a fast-moving edge-of-your-seat story" ( Kirkus Reviews, starred). At Large blows the lidoff the frightening vulnerability of the global online network, which leaves not only systems, but also individuals, exposed.
