  • Fascinating Cybercrimes ReadingIf you decide to read this book read Book 1, The Adversary and Book 2 Intrusion Surveillance can standalone, but the back story of Chris Bruen and Zoey Ducet will lure you further in to their exploits if you fully understand their back story I hope Hirsch writes Book 4.I chose this book for obvious reasons, it was the third in a series, and I loved the two that came before it I seriously could not put these books down Now you need to know this about me, when I find [...]


  • Thank you author Reece Hirsch for this signed copy of Surveillance Also, thank you to for hosting this opportunity through the First Reads program.I think this was a really good read At just south of 300 pages, expect pretty much non stop action from essentially beginning to end, with a few sections between to catch your breath I was quickly drawn in to to story and just didn t want to let go.There is a good character set of believable people, having normal skill sets for their respective jobs N [...]


  • Disclaimer I received an early copy of this book from the author for exchange for an honest review I devoured the book, page by page and enjoyed reading the new Chris Bruen story as much as I enjoyed the other two novels in the series.The story picks up with Chris and Zoe opening their new practice, getting the new office started when their first customer walks in after discovering the existence of a secret government agency Things get busy as the trio is chased by the operatives from the agency [...]

  • There s a saying that no good deed goes unpunished, and surely something similar to that has to be top of mind when Ian Ayres walks into the San Francisco law firm of Chris Bruen A so called ethical hacker, someone who hacks into companies at their request to test their cybersecurity and show them where their weaknesses are, Ayres found far than he bargained for on his last job.While conducting what he thought was a routine security probe, he came across information that indicates the existence [...]

  • The first novel was good in the series but these next two novels have not come close This novel was better than the 2nd offering but still it was a stretch at times and it just swung and missed we me I t had a good idea but was just not carried out on some sections seemed as filler and some scenes were a stretch to believe and the ending, I was not wild about It is doable.


  • A really great story ,scary that it could be trueEnjoyed that there were three different plots going on at one time Very believable,well written Made technical stuff easy to understand Truly a joy to read.


  • SURVEILLANCE is the third book in Reece Hirsch s Chris Bruen series The titular protagonist of the series, Chris Bruen, is a former Department of Justice cybercrimes prosecutor who has since turned to private practice In the previous two novels, Chris worked at the fictional law firm of Reynolds, Fincher McComb LLP in San Francisco But after his firm s involvement with the Russian mob, suspicions of cyberterrorist associations, and assassination plots, Chris perhaps rightfully decides that it s [...]


  • I would like to thank Thomas Mercer, as well as NetGalley, for a copy of this e ARC to review Though I received this ebook for free, that has no impact upon the honesty of my review Teaser When former computer crimes prosecutor Chris Bruen and retired hacktivist Zoey Doucet open their San Francisco law firm, it s the best day of their professional lives That is, until their first client walks through the door.Ian Ayres is an ethical hacker who was hired by a company to test the security of its o [...]


  • advance reading copy You may consider yourself a knowledgeable and savvy techie or someone well beyond, but this captivating thriller will reveal how pathetically uninformed you really are about cyberworld capabilities.Chris Bruen had just opened his privacy and cybersecurity legal firm in San Francisco When his first client, Ian Ayres, walked through the door both lives changed forever Ian was a former black hat hacker before turning to private practice and becoming a white hat hacker to help b [...]


  • I enjoyed the previous Chris Bruen technothriller Intrusion , about industrial espionage on a Chinese scale This latest work shows Bruen, a tech savvy privacy lawyer in San Francisco, opening his new company A client with apparent paranoia arrives but when they briefly leave the building an assassin enters and shoots the receptionist and computer operator Maybe the client wasn t overstating his case A few reasons are stopping me from giving this book five stars One is that the main characters, C [...]


  • MY REVIEWThis is an extraordinary thriller and suspense It gives you an insight into just how invasive to our privacy the government can be, and that is scary The story line is non stop flood with a pace that makes it hard to remember to breathe The characters are very well developed each one acting, talking, and responding in character In fact, the whole story is very well written, and quite believable I found myself quite sympathetic with the main characters One of them does something very muc [...]


  • I ll start off honestly sorry Reece I don t even remember how I stumbled across Reece Hirsch s first book that introduced his character, Chris Bruen I am very glad that I did, though From the very beginning of this character s introduction in The Adversary Hirsch has the reader fully engulfed in his world of cyber crimes and technology, and sets a fast pace that makes it very hard to put these books down.It s been just over a year since Intrusion the second Bruen adventure was released, and I ha [...]


  • Surveillance is a very scary read There are so many rumors, posts and articles floating out there about how the Government is watching and listening and reading this book just made me feel very, very uncomfortable I don t very often give out 5 stars and this is definitely in that category Surveillance starts out with a bang and just takes you on a serious thrill ride and a ride that takes you from the US to other countries The main characters are on the run from the US Government who have sent a [...]


  • Three separate but very related plots come together in this fun, fast paced, cyber suspense novel I enjoyed it a lot It s obvious the author knows his stuff, which actually makes this book than a little scary if even half of the security and spying elements of the story are true It truly seems there is no such thing as privacy any.I read an advance reader copy of this book which was provided to me by the author there s that disclaimer out of the way Over the years I have read a lot of these som [...]

  • The story started off awesome, but as the story continued to progress, I felt like I was being force fed a political rant I understand that this story is about surveillance and NSA, but good heavens, the repeated, continuous Snowden references were enough, but to actually bring Snowden into the story yes, one of the characters in the story actually has a conversation with Snowden , I almost quit reading Snowden s actions do not need to be glorified in fiction or non fiction If the author would h [...]


  • It took me two weeks to read this but really I if I had the time I would have read it in one night and finished Sadly, I can t do that any Within a busy life I read this book every spot I had free whether small or large The story grabbed me in the first few pages I m not normally a fan of serial characters but I make an exception for Reece Hirsch s book and his character Chris Bruen I m an IT person with an interest in security privacy areas and this was a thrilling ready It shows that Reece ha [...]
