Australian police uncover a laptop filled with child pornography; Belgian investigators trace the videos to a Ukrainian studio where they were filmed; the studio owner reveals the e-mail addresses of 20,000 American clients-and the FBI uncovers the largest child porn ring in US history. The discovery of The Cache offers a disturbing portrait of how criminals operate online-and how investigators have learned to respond. This is just one of the stories in The Internet Police, in which Nate Anderson gives readers a look at how the Internet was patrolled by Carnivore , the FBI's Internet wiretap tool; how the man behind the natural male enhancement pill Enzyte helped protect the privacy of e-mail and why a Russian spam king ended up in jail after a trip to Las Vegas. The Internet: borderless, anonymous, chaotic? Not any more.

A thought-provoking primer on the state of cybercrime. Anderson takes readers into the Wild West of the digital world. As soon as the Internet turned mainstream, a new breed of criminal appeared. The police, who were trained on Agatha Christie novels, took about a decade to catch up. This entertaining and informative book tells their story. -- Bruce Schneier, author of Liars and Outliers: Enabling the Trust Society Needs to Thrive
