"New York Times bestseller Cory Doctorow's Red Team Blues is a grabby next-Tuesday thriller about cryptocurrency shenanigans that will awaken you to how the world really works. Martin Hench is 67 years old, single, and successful in a career stretching back to the beginnings of Silicon Valley. He lives and roams California in a very comfortable fully-furnished touring bus, The Unsalted Hash, that he bought years ago from a fading rock star. He knows his way around good food and fine drink. He likes intelligent women, and they like him back often enough. Martin is a-contain your excitement-self-employed forensic accountant, a veteran of the long guerilla war between people who want to hide money, and people who want to find it. He knows computer hardware and software alike, including the ins and outs of high-end databases and the kinds of spreadsheets that are designed to conceal rather than reveal. He's as comfortable with social media as people a quarter his age, and he's a world-level expert on the kind of international money-laundering and shell-company chicanery used by Fortune 500 companies, mid-divorce billionaires, and international drug gangs alike. He also knows the Valley like the back of his hand, all the secret histories of charismatic company founders and Sand Hill Road VCs. Because he was there at all the beginnings. He's not famous, except to the people who matter. He's made some pretty powerful people happy in his time, and he's been paid pretty well. It's been a good life. Now he's been roped into a job that's more dangerous than anything he's ever agreed to before-and it will take every ounce of his skill to get out alive"--… (mais)

Doctorow offers a very superior experience if you want your adventure stories to be both accurate from a technical sense and meaningful. I especially like his new character, Marty Hench, who operates in a space which has much potential for future story development and who, while not being perfect, is likeable. Good to hear the second Hench novel is on the way. ( )

Forensic accountant is on the run after recovering a stolen laptop leads to murders in international crime families.

Fun read. Thought provoking framing of defensive v offensive modes (one requires finding one weakness the other requires being perfect). A little too perfect of a protagonist. A thoroughly GOOD guy. A bit much. But other than that good and enjoyable.

Near future story about forensic accounting in the crypto era, a bit like a modern detective story. As good as Doctorow usually is! ( )

I received a free copy from Tor books in exchange for my honest review.

Marty Hench is past retirement age (for those of us in the U.S. who can hope to retire, anyway) and cruises around Cali in his RV - not the protagonist I'd expect in a hacker/light espionage novel, but one I found surprisingly charming and relatable. Marty still takes on odd jobs as a forensic accountant and the recent job he accepts is a lot more dangerous than usual. I'm already a fan of Doctorow's work, so maybe I'm biased. But I found this fun, witty, and exciting. It's short - good if you need a quick read, but also pretty accessible for readers who, like me, aren't really familiar with Marty's line of work. There was also some light romance, which I was pleasantly surprised to find - older protags deserve some smoochin too! I would definitely read several more in the Marty Hench series and it's looking like another book is due to come out early 2024, so I'll be keeping my eyes out. ( )
