Hall has an extremely interesting story to tell, one involving theft of several hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. intellectual property in this one case alone. The author was on the front lines of the takedown of a notorious software pirate, whose website may have materially weakened national security by the complexity of the advanced programming, machining, engineering, and electronic guidance systems that were stolen. Unfortunately, the tale is diluted somewhat in the telling, by Hall's lengthy digressions both narrative and personal that interrupt the story at every turn.

This is one seriously weird book. I'm not disputing anything the author says, and I believe he's being completely honest, it's just that - - ideally - - something like this should have been turned immediately over to the CIA/DIA/NSA/Secret Service???????
Nothing appears to ever work correctly in the Wall Street-owned and operated US government?
But I most definitely appreciate the author's honesty and forthrightness; he's the working federal prosecutor type (AUSA, or assistant US attorney, the guys and gals who actually do stuff).
