A great computer hacker crime novel...

Since there wasn't much one could do with the snow outside, I decided to finish up a novel I started yesterday. It is The Hanged Man's Song by John Sandford. I like Sandford's Prey series with Lucas Davenport, but I don't think I've read any of his Kidd novels. Kidd is a painter and a hacker who lives pretty much on the wrong side of the laws when it comes to computer crime. In this installment, an uber-hacker known as "Bobby" is murdered and his laptop is stolen. When incriminating stories about government officials and programs start hitting the news, it becomes obvious that the person who stole the laptop was able to break the encryption codes and unleash the attacks until he gets what he is after. Kidd needs to stop him in order to prevent his own life from coming to an end if there is damaging information about him contained in the files.

The writing is tight and realistic, and if you're at all into computer crime novels you'll enjoy this one a lot.
