This is Gomorrah
By Tom Chatfield
Set in the technological underbelly of the 21st century, and taking the reader between London, Berlin, Athens and Los Angeles, as well as into terrorist-controlled Syrian cities, THIS IS GOMORRAH explores what it means to win, and to lose, at the global game of ideology and power.
Control the Internet, Control the World
Darknets are everywhere - and those who know where to look, and who to ask, can find anything. Drugs, guns, porn, ideologies, lives and deaths are all up for sale . . . and everything must go.
Elite hacker, loner, charmer, idealist and connoisseur of other people's mistakes Azi Bello lives in a 21st-century world where the dark side of technology is abolishing the old order.
When secretive Munira reaches out to Azi for his help, her story sparks his interest: her cousins have been recruited to work for a terrorist state that's hunting them both, and now her destiny is in Azi's hands.
As they work together, Azi and Munira's research leads them on the trail of an unimaginable conspiracy, at the heart of which is Gomorrah: the dark marketplace where the world's worst people trade lives and influence. As he throws himself into uncovering the most dangerous secrets, it isn't long before Azi's carefully crafted privacy comes crashing down.
But in a world where identities can be changed with just a few clicks . . . can you trust anyone?
