It’s two years after the Zero Day attacks, and cyber-security analyst Jeff Aiken is reaping the rewards for crippling Al-Qaida’s assault on the computer infrastructure of the Western world. His company is flourishing, and his relationship with former government agent Daryl Haugen has intensified since she became a part of his team.
But the West is under its greatest threat yet. A revolutionary, invisible trojan that alters data without leaving a trace---more sophisticated than any virus seen before---has been identified, roiling international politics. Jeff and Daryl are summoned to root it out and discover its source. As the trojan penetrates Western intelligence, and the terrifying truth about its creator is revealed, Jeff and Daryl find themselves in a desperate race to reverse it as the fate of both East and West hangs in the balance.
A thrilling suspense story and a sober warning from one of the world’s leading experts on cyber-security, Trojan Horse exposes the already widespread use of international cyber-espionage as a powerful and dangerous weapon, and the lengths to which one man will go to stop it.
Featuring a bonus interview between Mark Russinovich and Kevin Mitnick, author of Ghost in the Wires and The Art of Deception.

Without a doubt, one of the most captivating books i have listened to recently. Mark's obvious knowledge of the filed and the detailed description of certain aspects made it so much more enjoyable.
Of course, the timing of the events was just perfect and always made you to go further and further.
I have not read the print version, but the audio version was excellent.
Yes, I read Mark's first book zero day, and this is the perfect next step. I would highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in how technology can affect thdays news headlines.
Jeff once again is my favorite character.
I had to keep listening, it held me on my edge.
Probably not. I have too many other books I would like to move on to
The most interesting part is the early part where the new characters and major plot lines are introduced. The latter part, which seemed to be mostly car chases, was less interesting and more designed to be made into a movie
He brought some additional excitement to the car chases
I found this book to be a little less interesting than its predecessor "Zero Day". The ending just seemed to devolve into a series of car chases and was slightly difficult to follow
Captivating, intriguing, creative.
He brought inference.
No I didn't.
This book was very well worth my time.
The story was pretty good and technical.
Darryl, because she's an interesting character.
Constantly mispronouncing words, pronouncing the same word differently, and repeatedly mispronouncing "nuclear" (sounding like new-kyu-lur). He says the word "program" like "pro-grum" and other distracting annoyances.
This person should not have a job in narration.
