The book unfasten up with a preface, in which one of the central characters of the tome, Shaitan Vikram, does some tomfoolery with other two contemporaries under the tip of his guru, Shivani, one of the acme supervisors at Talsera, a belligerent small Gurgaon-based IT concern, who gets angry at him and shoot him from the work and that’s where the whole thing set in motion.

Out of the blue its business spying, program disruption and soul play operating at the similar moment. While catastrophe after predicament hit, it plunge upon the fresh mature administration gall of the concern to placate its key global patrons and reclaim its status. This narrative positioned predominantly in digital India, tag on the management of Talsera as they track down the scoundrel hacker.

The picture transfer from Taipei to California to Reno to Europe, from the combat zone of Kargil to the skyscraper vestibules of Gurgaon. There is in addition a Dutch chap caught up and how he is covenanted with Indians, all blended together and assembling sagacity near the finish.

The writers investigate concerning how Indian IT concerns function and purpose is colossal and then has wickered a narrative in the region of the whole thing while administering to make the paperback fast-moving.

This incredible account is stunningly finely enlightened in a lively, pursuit chic that craft it not possible to put the reserve out-of-the-way once the initial leaf is interpreted.

A doppelganger tour de force of exploit and description, it is a crazy quest, and an exhilarating description of a deed which required an intense intrepid resolve and it come off with the characters out of the ordinary in their individual means. Save for what made this yarn above all fascinating was the personality outlines of the blokes concerned which were extremely vibrant.

The volume has a type of sparkling tide and is also elegiac with corporeal imagery of the vista, resonance and odour. The outcome, subsequent to a gripping and engaging ride, is an exultant consummation and accomplishes a more or less predictive nous of profession.

The writer incarcerates the subject with emotion for the bonbon glum which is the splendour and so greatly a delight to experience. Its unwritten munificence and virtuoso, its people, the class and amount of information which it incorporate of the top enjoins craft it a rolling enchantment.

All in all, The Hacker is an exhilarating, solicitous and shockingly striking fine interpret and a truly pleasurable read. It's all a tad baffling but a clout jam-packed, swift tempo corporate suspenseful story that would maintain you on your toes.
