Genius programmer Angela Hoot has always been at the top of her class. Now she's at the bottom of the FBI food chain — until her first case threatens everyone around her.


Angela's graduate school days at MIT come to an abrupt end when she uses her hacking skills on another student's computer. Yet her mentor, Eve Abajian, arranges a new beginning for her — as an intern in FBI's Boston field office. Her new supervisor, Assistant Special Agent in Charge William Keats, one of only two agents in the Northeast to make his rank before the age of thirty, sees in Angela a fellow prodigy. But Angela's skills come with a natural curiosity, which is also a dangerous liability.


With little training, Angela is quickly plunged into a tough case: tracking murderous brothers who go by the Poet and the Engineer. When Keats tells her to "watch and listen," Angela's mind kicks into overdrive. The obsessive thinking that earned her As on campus can prove fatal in the field.

Great book. I am always very concerned and skeptical when I pick up a book with Patterson's name on it because the "value/interest" of the book lies in the co-author.
So many of Patterson' ghost writers are not very good and apparently Patterson doesn't care. Is Patterson still alive?! In any case, the story line has a lot of computer/internet savvy and is well worth reading.

I felt this book was a little like a debut novel in the sense Angela makes a lot of rookie mistakes. I can't believe the FBI would be so careless. The story is good and I liked the character of Angela as a tech genius but the novel progresses with a lot of mistakes. Not a bad read.

One of Patterson’s better books! Loved the dialogues and character development. The plot had me guessing. Very enjoyable read. My work was getting in the way of completing this book. Highly recommended.

I loved the book! I couldn't put it down. I would describe it as a computer geek meets mystery and thriller. I hope Patterson and Tebbetts follow through with a series. I would definitely want to know what happens with Angela at Quantico. If you haven't started reading any Patterson books, I would recommend starting off with this one! :)

Though I enjoy nonfiction more than fiction, all of James Patterson's books are amazing reads! He reminds me in a way of Stephen King (but more real).

THE NEW THRILLER FROM WORLDWIDE BESTSELLING AUTHOR JAMES PATTERSON
Angela Hoot is a young tech genius. But when she's kicked off her Masters degree course at MIT for hacking into the computer of a fellow student, she fears she's blown her chances of a glittering career.

Angela is wrong. Instead, she's offered a dream internship with the FBI. She jumps at the chance, and is thrown straight into her first case at house in the Boston suburbs where a family of five have been brutally murdered.

As Angela struggles to overcome the painful reality of her new job, a phone is found that could hold the secrets of this mass murder – if Angela is unable to uncover them.
