I read the first of the trilogy a few months ago and while I enjoyed it I had some criticisms. Firstly, it is another serial killer novel where the murderer is weird-crazy-evil and I think we have had too many of these. Secondly, there is some fairly hefty financial hacking that goes on and I am also getting a bit tired of the young brilliant clever but antisocial/deviant/autistic hacker character - I thought some of the hacking defied belief as well. It also went on a bit long but that is the modern way sadly. For these reasons my enjoyment of the book waned a little as I progressed through it but overall it is a very good read with a number of well drawn characters and I will probably try the second book at some point.
