Neal Stephenson: REAMDE
Neal Stephenson
#1 New York Times bestselling author Neal Stephenson, whose Snow Crash was named one of Time magazine's top 100 all-time best English novels, visits with his newest techno-thriller REAMDE.

The black sheep of an Iowa farming clan, drug smuggler Richard Forthrast amassed a small fortune—and then increased it a thousandfold when he created T'Rain. A massive, multibillion-dollar, multiplayer online role-playing game, T'Rain now has millions of obsessed fans from the U.S. to China. But a small group of ingenious Asian hackers has just unleashed Reamde—a virus that encrypts all of a player's electronic files and holds them for ransom—which has unwittingly triggered a war that's creating chaos not only in the virtual universe, but in the real one as well. It sets in motion a devastating series of events involving Russian mobsters, computer geeks, secret agents, and Islamic terrorists—with Forthrast standing at ground zero and his loved ones caught in the crossfire.
