'Corsair' by James L. Cambias seems like it will be a good novel. I was only provided with a brief preview, and while I can make guesses where I think the plot might go, I might also be completely wrong.

In the not too distant future, two young hackers meet at MIT. Elizabeth and David hit it off right away, even though one of them isn't actually enrolled in the school. The novel tracks them by moving back and forth in their lives. One of them works for law enforcement to try to stop hackers from capturing helium shipments in space. One of them likes the challenge of capturing and reselling these shipments for huge profits.

What's unclear is why these two don't immediately recognize each other's future personas. If one purported to like nautical pirates when you knew them when they were younger, it might be a safe suspicion that they still liked them by naming themselves after one. So, it's a cat and mouse game. I think. And it might also end up being a romance, or a con job, or a few other things.

About the time I was getting into the novel, the preview ended. I would like to know what happens, so I'll probably track the book down at some point to finish the story.

I received this preview from Mcmillan-Tor/Forge and NetGally in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
