The tentacles of the Dark Web are tightening their grip around the world. From Moscow to Shanghai, Washington, UK, the Middle East and Europe, nowhere is beyond their reach.

When a computer scientist dies mysteriously in Dubai, Jenny Bishop’s nephew, Leo Stewart, is hired to replace him. Leo’s life is soon in danger, but he is the only person who can find the key to prevent an impending global cyber-attack. With the help of Jenny and old and new friends, he must neutralise the threat before the world’s vital services are brought to a halt in a flagrant attempt to once again redraw the borders of Europe and Asia. Can the deadly conspiracy be exposed before the world is thrust into a new Cold War?

My Thoughts

 

Firstly thank you to Christopher Lowery and Kelly at Love Books Group for allowing me to read, review and be a part of the blog tour for this book.

This book is the third in a trilogy and I was a bit worried that I wouldn’t understand it. But I was pleasantly surprised. Although it does mention an brief history of the previous books, this could quite easily be a standalone novel.

Another thing that worried me was all the technical terms and computer jargon. I am quite a technical person and definitely don’t shy away from technically but all the terms for specific things I find daunting. But again I was surprised, there is a glossary of terms at the beginning and it helped me to understand what was being said a bit better.

The book itself, the story and the characters were great! I couldn’t fault them at all. The book just flows. Towards the end of the book I was definitely invested in Leo, the hero of the hour albeit unknowingly on his part until he’s thrown in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. Obviously I’m not going to give too much away as you can all go and read it for yourself. It is slow going to start with, but after a few chapters it’s fast paced and I couldn’t put it down. But it has shown me the all too real threat of the internet and cyber crime in general.

I’m giving this book a 4/5 as it was a good read and although 3rd in a trilogy is a standalone in it’s own right. I’d certainly recommend this fast paced, cyber crime, multi country novel.

I am the last person on this blog tour brought to us by Kelly at Love Books Group but make sure you go and check out the other stops on this tour to.
