Reviews

"Gray Day is a well-written and suspenseful story about an odd spy and the young man who helped take him down." --The Washington Times

"What job could possibly be twisty, mind-bending, and demanding than being an undercover spy in one of the FBI's own cybersecurity units? With resolute doggedness, shrewd psychological instincts, and the sheer guts to make critical split-second decisions, rookie agent Eric O'Neill helped to turn the tables on his own boss--one of the most dangerous traitors of our time. In Gray Day he weaves together his personal and professional stories with all the skills of a seasoned novelist. The result is a thrilling, page-turning brew worthy of Hollywood--only better because it's real."--Elisabeth Elo, author of Finding Katarina M. "Gray Day is both a real-life, tension-packed thriller and a persuasive argument for traditional intelligence work in the information age."--Bruce Schneier, New York Times bestselling author of Data and Goliath and Click Here to Kill Everybody "Gray Day is a fascinating read about catching infamous spymaster Robert Hanssen, who turned over classified materials to the Russians. You can't help but root for Eric as he tells his story of spying on the spymaster. I recommend this gripping book to all audiences, especially computer geeks and those interested in cybersecurity."--Kevin Mitnick, New York Times bestselling author of Ghost in the Wires and The Art of Invisiblity "An adrenaline-laced memoir...as compulsively readable as any thriller. O'Neill has a knack for ratcheting up tension so that foregone historical conclusions, such as Hanssen's capture, feel like white-knuckle cliffhangers...O'Neill's page-turner deglamorizes undercover work while conveying the uncertainty, stress, and excitement that accompany a successful investigation."--Publishers Weekly

"A taut and compelling real life thriller...part memoir, part true crime, this fast-paced work is recommended for anyone interested in cybersecurity, Cold War history, and espionage tales."--Library Journal "O'Neill's narrative...is valuable in its exploration of the psychology of the traitor and his motivations as well as how spies like Hanssen so often enjoy success for as long as they do until finally caught: 'Amateurs may hack machines, but professionals hack people.' Fans of spy fiction and true crime will find plenty to enjoy in O'Neill's account."--Kirkus Reviews
