Allison Trent is a college student and hacker. It started innocently and she was doing it for good. The FBI didn't know she was a hacker but they wanted her to help find a leak in their organization. She turned them down but ends up doing it, partly because they guess she hacks. This is an exciting book with messy family situations and a fellow student that tries to steals her work and then the mob that is bankrolling him tries to kill her and she (of course) falls in love with the agent assigned to her. Good book.
