Book of the Month: Digital Fortress by Dan Brown

Best Selling novelist Dan Brown never really appealed to me at all. What I knew of The Da Vinci Code I could write on the back of a postcard and still have room for the address. And to be honest, I knew enough as far as I was concerned. So imagine my surprise when, after […]
