Daemon - Book Review

I do not normally read fiction, it is so hard to keep up with security as it is. However Wesley McGrew recommended the book and he is one sharp cookie, so I ordered it from Amazon. The premise, at least I think it is the premise, this is a complex book, is that a video game genius dies ( are we sure he is dead; this we is not, I saw Swordfish ) and leaves a computer program that is essentially taking over the world for its own purposes.

There was a detective involved, (Sebeck), but they frame him and kill him off ( not sure why). As the book comes to a close we are down to two people with a clue, a smart pretty girl at NSA, (Phillips), and a mysterious hacker, (Ross).

We do not really seem to come to a conclusion, but Wesley also recommended I buy Freedom which I did. Here is hoping we get to some conclusion for Daemon Industries LLC in the second book.

It is a dangerous book for a geek to read, make no mistake about it. 632 pages means when you realize you are hooked, you are going to pull an all nighter because you can't put the book down. There is no chance I am going to pick up Freedom today, tonight I have to sleep and I have an important meeting tomorrow. Thank heavens for the $20.00 bag of 100% Kona coffee at Costco. First pot of coffee for the year, but I really need it.
