So at the moment I’ve re-read Counting from Zero and I’m on to Returning to Zero. I’d forgotten what good books they are, even if there are now moments of deja vu that make me wonder why the protagonist takes so long to figure some things out.
It’s better written than most hacking stories – it puts me in mind of a book version of what I remember of Mr Robot, in terms of the quality of portrayal of hacking.
And oddly it puts me in mind of TV show Hannah. Though they aren’t really alike, Hannah feels to black ops/CIA/spycraft what Counting from Zero is to hacking.
