This review of Mark Russinovich’s novel Zero Day was published by TechRepublic.
“‘He heard the whisper of clothing across nylon, the slight sound of her skirt dropping to the carpet. He sensed, more than saw, her form stretch on the couch. He unbuckled his trousers and let them drop around his ankles.’
That less-than-geeky start is ripped from page one of Zero Day, a new novel. Skip ahead a few sentences, and you’ll see, ‘NO OPERATING SYSTEM FOUND.’
Guns, babes, rootkits, blade servers, damsels in distress, and assassins. Mark Russinovich is best known to readers as a founder of Winternals Software and the website Sysinternals.com. With cofounder Bryce Cogswell (who retired from Microsoft in October 2010), Russinovich developed a reputation for a set of very useful utilities to diagnose Windows systems. In 2006 the company was acquired by Microsoft, and Russinovich now goes by the title of Technical Fellow in Microsoft’s Windows Azure Division.
