Productbeschrijving

Productbeschrijving

By day, Angie, a twenty-year veteran of the tech industry, is a data analyst at Tomo, the world's largest social networking company; by night, she exploits her database access to profile domestic abusers and kill the worst of them. She can't change her own traumatic past, but she can save other women.

When Tomo introduces a deceptive new product that preys on users' fears to drive up its own revenue, Angie sees Tomo for what it really is--another evil abuser. Using her coding and hacking expertise, she decides to destroy Tomo by building a new social network that is completely distributed, compartmentalized, and unstoppable. If she succeeds, it will be the end of all centralized power in the Internet.

But how can an anti-social, one-armed programmer with too many dark secrets succeed when the world's largest tech company is out to crush her and a no-name government black ops agency sets a psychopath to look into her growing digital footprint?

"Awesome, thrilling, and creepy: a fast-paced portrayal of the startup world, and the perils of our personal data and technical infrastructure in the wrong hands."
--Brad Feld, managing director of Foundry Group

"His most ambitious work yet. A murder thriller about high tech surveillance and espionage in the startup world. Like the best of Tom Clancy and Barry Eisner."
--Gene Kim, author of The Phoenix Project.

"Explores the creation and effects of the templated self, the rise of structured identity and one-size-fits-all media culture, and feasible alternatives."
--Amber Case, author of Calm Technology

Another captivating saga from William Hertling. This time, a hacker-heroine battles deep philosophical forces embedded in real-world situations. Think Lisbeth Sallander meets an evil version of Mark Zuckerberg. (Mark is the villain's opposite).

She is fighting a megalith of a corporation with Elliot's (Mr. Robot) bag of kit and in a totally surprise ending - well, you just have to read it. I couldn't put my iPhone (Kindle App) down.

I was totally blown away when I had just ordered a Raspberry Pi from Amazon while on vacation in Maine only to read about Angie's Raspi-based Onion router made from solar-powered, rooftop-chucked, micro-linux systems that snag bandwidth from random WAPs around Portland. Awesomely creative, Wm.

Whether you are tech or not, this is highly stimulating stuff. What this author does is veer very close to believable reality especially in the area of A.I.

Kill process had a little A.I. but mostly hacker-fi which again was extremely close to the real thing. When I worked for a Finnish security company, they had a secret lab where genii spent day and night with white hats tracking down Stuxnet. and other Zero-Day exploits. This takes the 'embedded system hack' to new levels of surrealism. Especially in this age of IoT.

Chillingly realistic.

Ok, Hertling - we want more. Lots more.

3.0 van 5 sterren Cyber Crime and Punishment 6 augustus 2016
door Matt Mansfield - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com

And now for a mash-up that's completely different: a techno-hunter who becomes the hunted in a brave new world.

In his 2016 release, "Kill Process," William Hertling moves from the technology-based world of science fiction he explored in the "Avogadro" quartet of futuristic novels (see my five-star Amazon 2013 - 2015 reviews) to more contemporary battles for survival among technology developers in Portland, Oregon. While some plot twists are clever, though you can see them coming, others are downright creepy because of their believability.

Angelina “Angie” Benenati is a one-armed computer programmer and security manager at Tomo, the largest social network company presumably in the world. That’s during the day. At night she uses her considerable technology skills to avenge her past experience as an abused woman at the hands of her now deceased husband.

Using cyber world hacker resources and probability modeling, she looks for women in abusive relationships and targets their male partners for elimination in devious, undetectable and unexpected ways. Stage One of running a “kill process” to terminate annoying out-of-control programs.

Let's just say, if you're a man driving a car, you don't want to cut off Angie on the highway, especially if she's feeling grumpy.

This motive is transformed when Tomo decides to take advantage of their users’ concerns about Internet privacy with a program that gives the illusion of identity screening but will actually be a tool for maximizing revenue through unsolicited offers to these subscribers.

Soon Angie is hot on the track to build an alternative decentralized network, Tapestry, with users as developers to destroy Tomo. Stage Two of running a “kill process” though now the target is an abusive company, not misogynist men.

Along the way, they come up with the idea of creating “chat bots” who are computer-generated characters that real people can have exchanges with about their feelings, dreams, fears, etc. on their interface of choice. Think emoticons backed by a lot of programming. This is familiar territory for anyone who has read Hertling’s earlier books with more expanded cyber programs and personalities.

Pretty soon, Angie and her merry band of stalwarts are making serious headway and becoming a nuisance for Tomo. Enter Lewis Rasmussen, the Tomo leader and sinister figure in this episode. He employs an even more despicable lieutenant, Chris Daly, a rogue Federal agent who is persistent and psychopathic.

Stage Three of running a “kill process” but now Angie is the target. At least it’s consistent with the original male abusers theme.

The plotting is initially a little slow, though the pace picks up, and the technology descriptions can be overwhelming. Angie is a little hard to feel empathy for. She is a driven personality with a need to succeed with whatever she’s doing. Her love interest doesn’t seem very genuine because she’s more into hunting big game with a ruthless efficiency.

As Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote in “Crime and Punishment“, “To go wrong in one's own way is better than to go right in someone else's.”

Perhaps this is Angie’s creed. You can admire it, even be entertained by its executions. But by the end, you may be scratching your head.

I started with Mr. Hertling's Singularity series. It didn't prepare me for the tour de force of this novel!

It engages from the beginning with a hacker committing physical crimes via cyberspace. Yes, it sounds odd and made me wonder if I wanted to read the full novel. I am glad that I did!

His character development was flawless. It wasn't too detailed yet provided the information necessary in order to pull the reader in more fully. The pacing of the story is good - again, not so detailed as to be slow, but detailed enough to get the reader to the next plot point without any fuss. The characters are believable and the story is compelling.

Anyone that has been involved in cyber security or deeply involved in application or database development will find no flaws. It speaks volumes about the research that went into this novel. Coupled with the entertaining references to contemporary SciFi novels and quips most developers would (or have) thought to voice make the story even more engaging.

A great work, IMHO, right up there with some of the works of Card, Gibson, Heinlein and Stephenson.

Kill Process is a story of Angie, who is a former co.puter hacker who now works for Tomo, a mega online social network similar to Facebook.

Angie decides to leave Tomo to develop her own network which will allow users to interact socially with friends and family without the data mining and constant intrusive overwatch that comes with membership to Tomo.

The story details the obstacles that must be overcome by a new start-up company while defending against overt campaigns designed to make the start-up company fail and prevent competition.

Then there's Angie herself. She's a victim of abuse from her deceased husband who died in a traffic accident engineered by Angie herself, and in which she lost her right arm. She still fights against her PTSD and has trouble getting close to.men, both physically and emotionally.

Additionally, Angle sees herself as a defender of abused women by engineering the deaths of the abusers through manipulation of computer-based devices. She does this from a distance with no evidence leading back to herself. Yet, she is a murderer, but with a purpose and a pure heart. You just have to root for her every time she goes after a bad guy.

Ultimately, Kill Process is a very detailed and complicated tale, deeply rooted in computer speak. The average reader may be overwhelmed with the tech data, which may or may not even be fictional. I have to say that the ending is marvelously demonic. Just remember, never try to outsmart a devious hacker.

The story itself is fun, but can be a bit tedious at times. The character development is amazing and the twists and turns will keep you guessing till the end. Great story!

I have read everything William Hertling has provided on Kindle (AFAIK). Due to the 'less formal' publishing process, there is the occasional typo. Now that I'm done complaining about his work, the rest of it is "upside". That is, I cannot put down, don't want to end, can't stop reading, etc. anything he has written (to this point). If you're any kind of geek (not in the 'circus performer' sense, but in the more modern usage, a member of the 'tech society' in any form or someone just interested in this area), I can't imagine you wouldn't love this work (as well as previous work by this author). As a software developer, computer scientist (by education), and self-proclaimed geek (for almost 50 years), I can relate to so much of (and so little of) the story, the characters, the world this all happens in, the day to day process of this life, the drive it takes to develop products 'out of nothing' (i.e. ideas-into-products with no physical realization in the entire process), and the application of morals / ethics / truth / justice to such a simultaneously chaotic and structured world. Totally engaging work. Must Read Now....
