Kingdom of Lies: Unnerving Adventures in the World of CybercrimeKingdom of Lies is an unfinished proposal of a book Kate Fazzini has fashioned her digging into the world of hacking into a story that is at once fascinating and rich, and also disjointed and pointless.Fazzini has molded numerous stereotypes into real characters, leading real lives and suffering real frustrations and setbacks They may even be real people readers don t know She draws her characters really well, so that readers are right there with them She keeps adding new characters as she Kingdom of Lies is an unfinished proposal of a book Kate Fazzini has fashioned her digging into the world of hacking into a story that is at once fascinating and rich, and also disjointed and pointless.Fazzini has molded numerous stereotypes into real characters, leading real lives and suffering real frustrations and setbacks They may even be real people readers don t know She draws her characters really well, so that readers are right there with them She keeps adding new characters as she goes, right up to the end It becomes difficult to keep track of them all, and guessing how they fit into the overall scheme of things turns out to be a futile task Because suddenly and without warning, the book ends There is no scheme of things No conflicts get resolved The good guys don t catch up to the bad guys, or even give chase No one suffers any kind of direct penalty because of their hacking actions The stories don t ever merge or even connect Anything or anyone There are single, isolated characters who don t connect to anyone at all They just pop up from times to time Perhaps the message is that hacking is a disjointed, decentralized enterprise, for both the white hats and the black hats But we knew that.The two longest, deepest stories run separately and never cross One is the cybersecurity unit of an international bank It is plagued not merely by hackers, but by internal politics and bureaucracy where no good deed goes unpunished, and a loyal cohesive team disintegrates because of a narcissistic celebrity ex military who is parachuted in to lead it The other is a tiny Romanian ransomware shop, which runs its course, makes its millions and disintegrates No one is ever in any danger Risks are minimal The ransomware operation and its players are never connected to the bank.Hackers are loners who don t do well playing with others This career choice gives them satisfaction and a living As long as no one trusts anyone else and covers themselves from potential outcomes, everyone gets away with everything So lies prevail, both as told to others and to themselves.Fazzini says she hopes readers will take away a better appreciation of privacy But the book as a book is at best unsatisfying Maybe it s a koan and readers should just let it flow over them and not analyze it Because trying to put it together as a single book with a story, a backbone, a conclusion and or a message did not work.David Wineberg Kingdom of Lies is a brilliant and bold debut, as full of suspense as the best crime thrillers Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author of Blood Oath In the tradition of Michael Lewis and Tom Wolfe, a fascinating and frightening behind the scenes look at the interconnected cultures of hackers, security specialists, and law enforcementAyear old Romanian student stumbles into a criminal ransomware ring in her village Soon she is extorting Silicon Valley billionaires for millions without knowing the first thing about computersA veteran cybersecurity specialist has built a deep network of top notch hackers in one of the world s largest banks But then the bank brings in a cadre of ex military personnel to help A cynical Russian only leaves his tiny New Jersey apartment to hack sports cars at a high performance shop in Newark But he opens his door to a consultant who needs his helpA hotel doorman in China once served in the People s Army, stealing intellectual property from American companies Now he uses his skills to build up a private side business selling the data he takes from travelers to Shanghai s commercial center Kingdom of Lies follows the intertwined stories of cybercriminals and ethical hackers as they jump from criminal trend to criminal trend, crisis to crisis A cybersecurity professional turned journalist, Kate Fazzini illuminates the many lies companies and governments tell us about our security, the lies criminals tell to get ahead, and the lies security leaders tell to make us think they are better at their jobs than they areLike Traffic set in the cybercrime world,Kingdom of Lies is as entertaining as it is eye opening [EPUB] ✵ Muerte en Hamburgo (Jan Fabel, Author Craig Russell – 9facts.co.uk as full of suspense as the best crime thrillers Linda Fairstein ❮Download❯ ➵ Jazz Age Stories Author F.
