Shelves: m-f-sex, cerebral
Can't say I particularly liked the ending, but it wasn't enough in my mind to knock off an entire star for it. This is a 2nd edition release. The original was in '09. As I got to the end of this I thought, there is no way there isn't a sequel at least. Well I looked and it doesn't appear there's a follow up. Maybe there is now that they re released this? IDK. The book blurb on the '09 paperback version differs greatly to the blurb in '17.

Anyway. This is a cyber iSpy and is a very cerebral but en

Conspiracy theories, the most elite hackers of Generation X, secret CIA agents, Eugenics, and a very complex relationship between two super-intelligent women. I loved this story. It is brilliant and well developed.

There are many secrets that the reader is encouraged to try to figure out throughout this book. Even screenshots of hand written secret agent notes that might as well have said "this message will self destruct in 10 seconds", were included. You get to try to figure out who the players
This novel probably isn't for everyone, and not just because of the lesbian erotic portions. It is a delicate and intricately woven piece, told from limited internal third person - the little voice riding in the back of several characters' heads.

As a result, some changes in POV are very distinct whereas others may feel more subtle. In all cases, it's never i ...more

I’m not even sure how to rate this book and I have so many feelings I’m tempted to write the review in Spanish so it’s really accurate. At the beginning, when I read the description, I thought it would be interesting. The plot seemed promising. But then I started reading and it was tedious to say the least.

I’m pretty sure under all that endless inner monologues of ALL THE F?$&!IN CHARACTERS, that lasted about 85-90% of the book there was a decent and even interesting plot, that’s why I tort

Charlotte "Charlie" Riven is a former hacker that is working for a multi-billion dollar company called Whitestone.  Whitestone is a multi-billion dollar hedge fund and fingers are pointed in Charlie's direction when there is millions of dollars being redirected elsewhere.

Elaine Harper is a Treasury agent and is assigned to work undercover at the company Charlie works for.

There was too much technical jargon that didn't interest me, however, I was interested in the relationship between Charli and

Got a bit bored with it after a while and skipped pages. The technical stuff was OK but the relationship was confusing. A lot was played out in the characters' head and I was not always sure who was who then.
