Reece Hirsch’s first book, THE INSIDER, was a finalist for the 2011 International Thriller Writers Award for Best First Novel. THE ADVERSARY (Thomas & Mercer) is the first book in a new series of thrillers featuring former DOJ cybercrimes prosecutor Chris Bruen, who hunts down hackers and cybercriminals on behalf of his clients. Both books draw upon Hirsch's experiences as an attorney—although his legal work is a lot less exciting and hazardous than Bruen's. Hirsch is a partner in the San Francisco office of an international law firm, specializing in privacy and data security law. He is also a member of the board of directors of 826 National (www.826National.org). Hirsch lives in the Bay Area with his wife and a small, unruly dog.
