This was a good book, no, it was a great book. So why am I giving it 3 stars? The ending kind of ruined it. I'm not going to give anything away, I just felt the conclusion was rushed and predictable, unsatisfied with the demise of the antagonists. The author did such a good job building up tension and emotion, guess he didn't know how to end it on a good note.

It's a really good book. The way the story goes, things changing very fast, and the poor guy sees his life turning completely in a mess that he never thought about it could be possible in a few time.
I recommend this book for all lover's of technology and action books.
