really liked it
Read in September, 2011

I'm not the biggest Kevin Poulsen fan, but this was a fun read. I liked the san francisco specifics of it and that some of the players were familiar to me, which made it feel more like a gossip session than a crime book. Kevin does a reasonable job of making some of the characters sympathetic, and surprisingly does not gloss too much over the exploits themselves.

I'd recommend it.
