About Me:
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 ( Hirsch lives in the Bay Area with his wife and a small, unruly dog.

    Reece - have been pestering the folks at M is for Mystery about your book launch. Understand it will be soon. Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Take care!

    Reece - it was great to see and hear you at the book launch in SF's Book Passage. Bought the book and then had to finish it asap. What a page turner -- you've mastered the art of compelling the reader to go on to the next chapter -- you literally can't put the book down. The SF details are impeccable and the law firm politics ring true. The Insider is a must read.
