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.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave Umrysh | 2/16/2014

    " Another great book by Mark. I am thoroughly enjoying the universe he is developing with these characters. As long as he keeps writing them, I'll keep reading them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vera VB | 2/12/2014

    " Another fine thriller about what virusses, trojans, malware can do to the world. If we don't watch out, World War III will be launched due to this stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/10/2014

    " Good plot, poor writing, especially the dialog. If main-character Aiken second-guessed himself (about fleeing the hospital and not calling the police) just one more time, I would've quit reading it. I'm glad I finished, though, because the end was suspenseful and intelligent. I'm always looking for an author to recommend to folks who've read all the Vince Flynns, but I don't think this one quite meets the standard. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edward | 2/3/2014

    " This was the author's second novel. He is a computer security specialist with Microsoft. If a fraction of the things are happening around the world in the cyber community that he writes about, it is very scary. This novel was not as realistic in some respects as his first novel, Zero Day, but it was still a fun and scary read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Iglen | 2/1/2014

    " It is all right. May be a little bit better than Mark's previous (and first) novel. Mark is well known and recognized, for his "Windows Internals" low-level computer books (I even have one on my virtual favorite shelf) and I applaud him for his first more literally efforts. This book beginning was great IMHO, he has great descriptions for layman of nature of malware (where in fiction you see mentioning of a "pagefile"?), mid-book kept me bound for hours to read, end was somewhat boring despite culmination of events. As a previous book it is an ominous warning to world sliding to CyberWar. In either case I'll keep an eye on his following books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Southwell | 1/31/2014

    " Far, far too realistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony Stell | 1/16/2014

    " Awesome (and accurate) detail in the techie stuff. Fun action too. Recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neocortex | 11/27/2013

    " Through in two days. As good as Zero Day. Could contain a bit more of Jeff Aikens Job (more tech) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 11/13/2013

    " Another way too technical book. But I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 11/2/2013

    " A good book and an engaging read. For me it got slightly unbelievable towards the end - as someone else put it, the heroes were "a bit too heroical!" I think it would make a great movie! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John | 11/1/2013

    " Russinovich should stick to his day job "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mohamed | 10/13/2013

    " Much better than zero day indeed although it has less technical info but nice idea with much better plot while descriping how cyber war is going on or how it'll be beside showing the effect of stuxnet on the cyber world and how yhings will be changed as a result for it "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lois Plale | 8/7/2013

    " It held my interest, but ... "eh". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 5/21/2013

    " Enjoyed this book about a Trojan Horse that will change war as we know it. "

    " Good book but sometimes too technical. Also ending is very "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew Connell | 2/5/2013

    " Good book, just like his other one. However like the other one, the ending felt rushed and almost like he had to make it under a page count. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben Cardinal | 1/26/2013

    " Computer geek evolved into secret agent. What's not to love:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Antwerpenr | 11/27/2012

    " Enjoying this a lot and more than Zero Day, his previous book. This is 100% up to date and will scare the socks off you! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Will | 11/25/2012

    " Mark's books are great IT thrillers, accurate and plausible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Patterson | 10/30/2012

    " Pretty good, as with the first novel I had trouble putting it down. The end of the book ended a little to abruptly but I still enjoyed it and look foreword to his next novel. "
