The Cover : What caught my eye as soon as I received the book was the way the title was displayed. Moving away from convention, the same is written vertically. I wondered? But then on going through the book I found an explanation which I wonder is what the author/ publishers/ cover designer had in mind. To me it signified a breach right from the lowest level to the highest level. Interesting isn't it? Storyline: Interesting, intriguing, realistic and engaging. Acel the multinational giant in the pharma industry is on the verge of patenting a new drug ‘Colare’ that can combat cancer. But, just when everything seems to b going fine the project runs into rough weather with the team realizing that there has been a breach. Billions are at stake and with that the career and life of the main protagonist Vir and his team. Just as one would expect, the blame game starts, the disgruntled find an outlet to vent their frustration, sleep deprived staff work round the clock trying to figure out what went wrong, who are the perpetrators of the crime and how to control the damage done. The story spans over two continents & three countries. The author takes us on a virtual tour of the cyber world. The nitty- gritty of cyber crime & cyber security is discussed effectively making even the layman, the non-techie enjoy each new twist & turn without getting confused. This speaks volumes for the research that has gone into the making of the book. The story introduces us to the potential risk we the common people as well as Corporates face from the virtual world. The book is an eye-opener. It is sure to make one jittery about the safety of his/ her personal as well as virtual identity and systems. The question that one will be forced to ask oneself at the end of the book is, “How safe am I?” Characterization : The characters are well etched with all their imperfections. Language & pace: Language is crisp & lucid. No hard nuts to crack no pebbles to take away the taste.
