The Blue Nowhere - by Jeffery Deaver

And, afterwards, I started and finished the Blue Nowhere. Not as good as the Bone Collector or the Coffin Dancer, but he did a pretty good job writing about a hacker/killer. I enjoyed it.

p 262
"Remember: All the world's a MUD, and the people in it merely characters."

Heh. How many of you remember BBS MUDs? How many of you remember when 1200 baud modems were incredibly fast? Ah, the good old days, when I had a page full of passwords for the local BBSes, and played Scrabble and Risk, one move a day... And some sort of Space Trader game. Whee. Was it Rogue Trader? I can't recall.
