About this ebook

Would you kill yourself to save your loved one?

When Brody Taylor receives a ‘death letter’ from a fellow elite hacker, sent a week after his murder, its contents present Brody with an offer even he can’t refuse. With the investigation being led by his girlfriend, DI Jenny Price, Brody faces an unexpected personal and professional conflict of interest. Meanwhile, unaware of the victim’s true occupation, Jenny is stumped. How and why would a disabled Afghan War veteran be poisoned in his own home by one of the world’s most deadly snakes?

Working side by side, but with very different objectives, Brody and Jenny uncover a global cyberterrorist conspiracy. To prevent the cyberweapon from releasing its deadly payload, Brody realises he’ll need to lie to Jenny once again, knowing the truth will destroy their relationship. But with tens of thousands of innocent people scheduled to die within twenty-four hours, does he have any choice?

Forget nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. The modern-day weapon of mass destruction is digital. And we’re all at risk.

I loved this book, partly because I like and work with computers so the link to the internet not only fascinated but even gave me some tips on keeping safe out there. I found it very interesting, especially the terms like the "dark net" and "white hat hackers". The plot was unusual, with lots of unexpected twists and turns. I love books where you simply cannot guess what is going to happen next or who did it or even why they did it, although of course it is all explained in the end. Even the careers and love-lives of the two protagonists didn't go as expected, and you had a little side stories going on in the background. Really well thought out and a nice follow on to the previous books in the series (although also ok on its own). Really looking forward to more.

A lot of information about the realities of cyber security that's sometimes too accurate.

About the author

Ian Sutherland was brought up in the Outer Hebrides, remote idyllic islands off the west coast of Scotland. In an effort to escape the monotonous miles of heather, bracken and wild sheep, Ian read avidly, dreaming of one day arriving in a big city like London. And then, at the tender age of twelve, he was unexpectedly uprooted to Peckham, inner-city suburb of South-East London. Ian quickly discovered that the real London was a damn sight more gritty and violent than the version he’d read about in books and watched on TV. Undeterred, Ian did what he did best, and buried his head back in his books, dreaming of other places to escape to.

Roll forward some years, and Ian can still be found with his head in a book. Or, given that he enjoyed a successful career in the IT industry, an eBook Reader. And now, having travelled a fair bit of the globe in person and even more of it via the internet, Ian lives with his wife and two daughters in a small idyllic village, surrounded by green fields, copses and the occasional sheep, yet located just outside of the London he finally came to love.

Here, he writes gritty, violent crime thrillers full of well-rounded characters, set in and around London and its suburbs. His stories also feature the online world that most of us jump into blindly each day, but Ian exposes its dark underbelly and dramatically illustrates just how dangerous the internet can be for the unwary.
