The Beijing Code by Wes Thomas is one of those books that makes you think, "Does this type of stuff really happen?" The book follows American Rachel Watson, a brilliant computer engineer, as she is sent to Beijing to build a interface for the world's largest telecommunications company. The interface is supposed to help two of the biggest networks in Beijing communicate. She soon discovers a 30 year old computer code interlaced in the networks programming and realizes there are more than two parties communicating on this network. Her discovery lands her in hot water and wanted by the government of the People's Republic of China. Only the help of Mark Slater, a covert CIA agent, will help her uncover this espionage conspiracy and escape alive.

The Beijing Code starts slow but picks up very quickly. If you aren't up to date on computer terminology, you might be slightly lost, but you should still make it through ok and still enjoy the book.

In compliance with FTC guidelines, I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
