Was ok, but not as much fun as the first one, the main character trying to hero it out is not really something that feels fits for the idea i had of him.

Would probaly buy the next book of the author, but i hope thats more techincally oriented again. ( )

Interesting plot, authentic technical background (and I deal with security issues myself). But the writing is just not up to the task. It makes for quite boring reading, despite plot attractiveness. I enjoyed technical references the most, rather than narrative. ( )

I felt like he spent more time explaining the technicality of things in this book then he did in Zero Day. That being said it's fun to read a book that deals with cyber security in a realistic manner (for the most part).

I won an ARC of Trojan Horse: A Novel by Mark Russinovich in a giveaway for free on Goodreads First/Reads- Wow* what an eye opener** Trojan Horse is a brilliant story... filled with enough action and suspense to have you flipping through the second half of this novel with no problems...

It's two years after the Zero Day attacks, and cyber-security analyst Jeff Aiken is reaping the rewards for crippling Al Qaeda'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.… (more)
