A brutal attack that leaves a young woman paralyzed is horrifyingenough, but when it happens to one of Seattle police lieutenant Lou Boldt's ownofficers, and all the suspects wear the same uniform as the victim, it's muchworse. The SPD has been struck by a not-very-mysterious case of the "blue flu,"a labor dispute that's turned cop against cop. Frustrated by the work slowdownin the department, Boldt is working almost on his own, except for forensicpsychologist Daphne Matthews and detective John LaMoia, familiar characters inPearson's popular series (ThePied Piper, The FirstVictim). Despite not-so-veiled warnings from some of his colleagues, Louis determined to unmask Maria Sanchez's attacker, even if it turns out to be afellow cop. And if that's not enough, the piano-playing lieutenant with adevoted wife--and a lingering yen for his coworker Daphne--has to deal with acrime wave that's increasing every day as the blue flu fells more of theforce.Investigating a string of robberies, Lou and Daphne follow the evidence to atelemarketing operation in a Colorado prison and question an inmate who may haveused inside information to set up the robberies for his brother in Seattle tocarry out. When the inmate dies, his brother goes after Lou, who isn't sure whoto blame when violence hits too close to home--the brother or the strikingpolicemen. Middle of Nowhere isn't Pearson's best outing: the plot isthinner than usual and the pacing somewhat slower, although the detailedexplanation of how to catch a criminal using new telecommunications technologyis fascinating. Still, Lou Boldt is an always interesting character whose innerconflicts are well drawn and whose essential decency makes up for a lot. Hisunderstated romance with Daphne deepens in every new adventure; the real mysteryis what's going to happen to the two of them. --Jane Adams

The threat of a cyber attack to the UK is so serious it is marked as a higher threat than a nuclear attack. One can steal more on the internet than they can by robbing a bank and online criminals in 25 countries have chosen the UK as their number one target. Astonishingly, some are operating from EU countries. If we don't have a 21st century response to this 21st century crime, we will be letting those involved in these gangs off the hook. After a 10 month inquiry the Committee concluded that: a dedicated state of the art espionage response team should be established so that attacks can be immediately reported; Banks must be required to report all e-crime fraud to law enforcement; it is alarmed that CEOP is having its budget cut by 10% over 4 years, its experienced Chief Executive is leaving and it could lose its laser-like focus when merged with the National Crime Agency; it is still too easy for people to access inappropriate online content and those responsible need to take stronger action to remove such content - the Government should draw up a mandatory code of conduct with them to remove material which breaches acceptable standards; the DPP should review sentencing guidance and ensure e-criminals receive the same sentences as if they had stolen the same amount of money or data offline; the Government should look at setting up a similar organisation to the Internet Watch Foundation focused on reporting and removing online terrorist content
