"Over the Atlantic, an airliner's controls suddenly stop reacting. In Japan, an oil tanker runs aground when its navigational system fails. An in the Midwest, a nuclear power plant nearly becomes the next Chernobyl. At first, these computer failures seem unrelated. But Jeff Aiken, a former government analyst who saw the mistakes made before 9/11, fears that there may be a more serious attack coming. And he soon realizes that there isn't much time if he hopes to stop an international disaster. Zero Day presents a chilling "what if" scenario written in the vein of Richard A. Clarke and Daniel Suarez"--Provided by publisher.

I think the previous commenter missed out on a very good read. Aside from a very, very brief (but potentially realistic) scenario involving two consenting adults (with very little detail), the rest of the book was excellent. Realistic for the most part, Mr. Russanovich has blended the technical details of existing technology with a readable, and enjoyable, spy thriller.

Realistic account of what could happen....and maybe already has...........................

Realistically-portrayed story about a worst-case scenario concerning the current state of computer security. It doesn't reach too far into the implausible -- much more plausible than stories like Suarez's "Daemon".
