About this ebook

“Meet Amy. Should she live, or should she die? Her fate is in your hands! Vote now…”

Reclusive website designer Thaddeus Webb thinks he knows the internet, but a brief excursion into its shadier regions throws up more than he bargained for. He stumbles across a harrowing video of a captive girl, her destiny to be decided by paying voters.

When it becomes clear the authorities aren’t taking the plight of the victim seriously, Thad knows he can’t stand by and do nothing. Could this be his chance to redeem himself for the sins of his past?

Before he knows it, he’s become embroiled in a search that traverses both physical space and cyberspace as he works to track down the untrackable, trace the untraceable, and try to save the blameless teenager before the vote reaches its grisly conclusion.

Dark Webb is the first in a brand new technothriller crime mystery series from Harry Dayle, author of the acclaimed Noah’s Ark and The Faslane Files. With his trademark action and suspense, the novel explores the so-called dark net or dark web.



Editorial Review:

Thad: a dark past and sins to atone for. Matt: a naive young man, running from the pain of losing his parents and getting mixed up with the darker sides of London. Amy: young and beautiful, held captive, but for how long? The author brings these and other characters together in a story of one haunted man who is trying desperately to right past wrongs and of others whose disturbing desires lead them to the darkest corners of the mind. Dark Webb is a fast-paced, engaging novel that takes us into the world of the “deep web” where one can purchase everything imaginable — including a person’s life.

I enjoyed this, it kept me hooked. I wish it could've been clearer though, like yeah Sanders is using Webb as his fall guy but the twins still could've helped him since they were actual witnesses and how useless is their cyber crime division when they can't follow the trail of a web designer, who's not a proper hacker, to piece together the proper information? Maybe I missed something, but that just doesn't make sense to me.. or maybe it does, law enforcement is pretty useless in most cases, so who knows.

The plot, twist at the end and characters all hooked me and drew me in. Started reading at bedtime and didn't rise in the morning till I was done. Thaddeus Webb felt real. A real person who made bad choices and then made decisions to better them even when the consequences went against himself. Enjoyed this character so much. Looking forward to Tangled Web. Great read!
