Blackwell North Amer
Judy Carmody is a total hacker, a freewheeling California freelancer who, at twenty-something, is the best in the business of Internet security. But even Judy has never seen anything like the cyber-heist that instantly vaporizes the assets of a major bank. Penetrating state-of-the-art defenses, working in the dead of night, someone is using a mysterious new code to empty accounts. And they're getting away with it, leaving no trace. The masterminds have thought of everything - including the elimination of every hacker who might be able to stop them.
Forced into hiding, Judy disappears into the bizarre underground of California hacker culture. As she desperately hurries to crack the deadly code, she uncovers secrets that reach the highest levels of power - secrets that jeopardize the security and privacy of every citizen. For today, computers are everywhere.
