D.E.M. - Deus Ex Machina

Lee Ness

     The email pinged again. The attachment was a picture of the door to her flat. She reeled. Clasping her hand to her mouth as she retched again.

     “It was never about the money, Rachel. It was always about you. I could use someone with your skills. I’ll be in touch. I know where you live. D.E.M.”

When Rachel is spurred to use her computing skills to find an abducted boy, she has no idea that it will bring her to the attention of an anonymous vigilante. Is the vigilante what he seems and what does he want with Rachel?

Rachel is coerced by the mysterious D.E.M. to carry out hacking on seemingly innocuous companies, helped by her friends Deborah, Cam and Cam’s ill-tempered boss, Dave.

As she gets drawn deeper into their world, she tries to find out more, only to put herself and her friends in grave danger.

When she finally realises that the mysterious D.E.M. isn’t a vigilante at all, Rachel is in a race against time to save her friends and prevent an escalation in the war between Israel and Palestine.

What people are saying about The Sports Motivation master Plan"The Sports Motivation Master Plan by Lee Ness is a book I wish I had been able to get my hands on as a developing athlete. Through the book, Lee provides advice on a wide variety of topics that will be useful to developing athletes, their parents, and their coaches. Right from the beginning, Lee provides a framework for selecting a sporting goal, and then discusses how to achieve this goal. The book looks in depth at how to get the best out of yourself through a range of physical and mental techniques, including an in-depth discussion of "The Zone" and how to get there, how to turn weaknesses into strengths, and mind games. Essential reading for anyone that wants to reach their sporting potential.”

Alexander felt triumphant and couldn’t help a slight smile crossing his face. He had outplayed the Strategos and thought about how pleased Nicanos would be, but the Strategos’s next words froze the smile on his face.“You’re assuming I allow you to return, boy.” The Strategos’s smile widened into a feral grin again. This one did touch his eyes, but the humour in it didn’t comfort Alexander. “Maybe I’ll just have you killed right now and then I don’t have any problems.” His eyes bored right through Alexander.
Book description for the Hoplite novel:In 440BC, all the young Alexander wants to be is an Olympian. But while trying to follow his hoplite father, Alexander becomes trapped aboard a troop ship. His life spins out of control when making port, the seemingly benign state of Samos overthrows the mighty Athenian army and tragedy strikes. He soon realises that the foes in his own camp are more dangerous than the Samian rebels. When one of his only friends and allies on the island goes missing, Alexander has to further endanger his own life to try and find him but by doing so he puts his friend's life, and his mother back in Athens, in danger.Note: This novella is Part 2 of Hoplite. The other five parts will be released over the course of the year.
