    • This book was recommended to me over a year ago and I finally got around to reading it. It was a great read, and despite being long (almost 500 pages) I easily finished it in one day. Despite being written by a Canadian, none of the action takes place here. Ranging from India, to Paris, to London, to the United States, the action keeps this book moving.Danielle Leaf is the main character and has spent her life trying to figure out who she wants to be. Most recently, she has been in India, first [...]


    • an enjoyable novel of escape into a reality-based world of activist action. there were a lot of things i liked about this book and the characters, but none of it was very deep. this was a lovely distractionever, there was a point in the novel where i started feeling a bit dirty for reading an action-adventure tale about anti-globalisation protests and direct action. it's like anarchist porn. but hey, we all need that sometimesading a hardback novel from harpercollins that talks about the wobblie [...]


    • This is the first Jon Evans novel I have read. What an adventure in reading! This book is positively vibrating with intensity and action. If you want a book that you will not want to put down, this is the book for you. The action is constant with occasional breaks where you can catch your breath before again boarding that rollercoaster ride through the pages. I found that with all the switchbacks and turnabouts I was holding my breath. This book spun me around and topsy-turvy with every change i [...]


    • Sorry, Mr. Evans, this book was a big ol' pile of stinking poo. I gave it two stars only because I was so fascinated with what a train-wreck it is that I had to finish it.I liked Jon Evans' previous works, in that I applauded him for creating a unique niche for himself in the mystery genre and while some aspects of his niche were more interesting to me: trekking, travel, and his protagonists solving crimes with technology from a hacker/geek perspective; personally, others were miserable for me: [...]


    • This is a thriller. It at first appears to be about selfless anti-corporate investigators probing diseases around a mine in India. It morphs into a love story between the main protagonist Danielle Leaf and Laurent Cing-Mars, and then into a diabolical plot by a billionaire to keep himself alive despite his cancer. Evans does a fine job with settings---India, London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and so on---imparting the sense that he's been to each. Hacking is one of the prime themes [...]


    • I'm not normally a reader of thrillers, but this book is a notable exception. Sure, it isn't Ulysses, but it is thoughtfully-written and tightly plotted. As a geek, I was especially charmed by Evans' cranky black-hat hacker, Keiran Kell. I couldn't tell you how well Evans captures the atmosphere in exotic locales such as Bangladore and Goa, but I can say that he sketches out DEFCON and hacker culture with a deft hand. It's no easy task to write a book about hacking without falling victim to the [...]



    • I really enjoyed the plot line of this book but I was really bothered by the frequent use of the "f" word thus the reason for the low rating.


    • Wow!Exciting book, couldn't put it down. First book I've read from this author, what a great read it was!highly recommend this book!


    • I kept reading this book and the whole time i was like "Holy Crap!" was one thrilling ride to the next after every page.


    • Decent storyNaive woman losses her innocence on how the world works. An insight into what money can buy without morality. Silence, hackers, killers.


    • Good bookYou people should just read this book yourselves and write your own review on this novel yourself and I really enjoyed reading this book very much so. Shelley MA


    • A pretty good techno thriller, but I feel Jon Evans has some repeating topics to work with. While a stand alone book it felt eerily similar to night of knifes.


    • The book explores issues such as the exploitation of third-world countries, extreme anti-capitalist activism and takes a look behind the power of public protest and the politics of big business. It shows that in today’s modern world, where security cameras record every move you make and databases determine who you are, a select few play god by manipulating and controlling our technology. Those would-be gods can make themselves rich, save lives or ruin people on a whim, even change history and [...]


    • Picture improbable action movies and you've got this book. But I still enjoyed it. Danielle gets sucked into a world of corporate espionage, Indian thugs, sexy French military men, computer hackers and pharmaceutical malpractice. Everything happens to this girl and she doesn't know who to trust and what is going to happen next. It's a whirlwind, but pretty darn exciting. From now on, I'm never connecting to a hotel wireless connection again! I have also read The Blood Price from this author, and [...]


    • Young lady gets asked to deliver a passport to a friend of a friend in some outback part of India. Gets stopped by some dudes in uniforms who search her pack and plant a bag of weed and then put her in a cell. Soon after that a guy gets thrown in with her (after being beaten outside her cell). He’s a macho ex-French Foreign Legion dude and together they break out and make their escape. And then things really get going.A pretty good high tech thriller with lots of hacker stuff and terrorists an [...]


    • A really good book. Lots of twists and turns. Requires little suspension of disbelief if you already have a paranoid streak about greedy people and corporations. The most remarkable part is how uncomfortable the book managed to make me feel about the main characters as they went through their story arcs. There is true tension between liking and relating to them, and being repulsed by what they're doing. I won't say any more. Overall, another good read, found by way of Bruce Sterling'a recommenda [...]


    • I was in the mood to read a book about hackers and voilá, someone recommended this one to me (thanks Boing Boing). It is a good book if You happen to be a nerd or in love with all things tech (I am in between) so It was a fast read and Evans took me for a ride telling me exactly what a hacker can and can't do. So if You like thrillers this particular book will appeal to You too. Go get It It is worth your time.


    • Sometimes I pull things off my wishlist without knowing why I put it on there in the first place. (I have a long wishlist.) In this case the acknowledgements include a bunch of my friends, so probably that’s why.It’s a thriller, with a eco-terrorism theme. The first half is superb. The second half dissatisfied me–it felt (to me) that the later plot twists were there to be twisty, rather than emerging from the characters and situation.


    • I bought this book on Pixel of Ink yesterday morning (free Kindle book) and I am really enjoying the setting (modern India) and the thriller espionage plot! I will want to read more of his books, for sure.Just finished itry exciting and lots of fun to read. I guess I love computer hacker novels. For a book published in 2005 about technology, it was surprisingly current.


    • I was a bit disappointed. I was looking for a great cyber thriller as Matrix or so. This book is not that. The story itself is an everyday "someone is doing something wrong what needs to be top notch secret and of course others find out about it" type of novel. But then: the "run for your life" part is full of excitement.


    • The idea of the book was interesting. I loved the concept and I think over all the book would make a fantastic movie but the way it is written is sometimes hard to read. The author often drags on the narrative and some sections of the book feel clunky. The book could have easily been 100 pages shorty and arrived at the exact same point and it would have been a better book.


    • Jon Evans is a talented writer. Dark Places was a great book with fantastic descriptions of travel destinations, and countries around the world.I guess the disappointment of this book, is that is starts so strong, set in rural India, and then kind of fades to just another book set in America.Is it bad when you hope the bad guys win?


    • Even after ten years, this book holds up pretty well. Yeah, some of the technology references are a bit dated (people using hiptops instead of our now ubiquitous cell phones), but it still a really solid infosec thriller and the use of botnets and zero-day exploits feel just as relevant a decade later.




    • A fairly decent action thriller. I don't recommend a read even though the computer knowledge of the characters is somewhat unbelievable. The world takeover conspiracy is also overplayed.
