This is Gomorrah

This is Gomorrah

Control the Internet, Control the World

‘Gripping, intelligent and stylish’ Sophie Hannah

If you know what you’re doing, you can find anything on the internet. Drugs, guns, porn, ideologies, elections, even lives and deaths are all up for sale . . . and everything must go.
Elite hacker Azi Bello lives his life in the technological underbelly of the 21st century. A loner, charmer, and lover of grey areas, he works for himself and answers to no one – until his online existence crashes violently into the real world.

The secretive but intriguing Munira has reached out to Azi for help, and her story has sparked his interest: Munira’s cousin has been recruited by terrorists and, in her attempts to find out more, she has attracted the attention of some very dangerous people.

Now forced to go on the run, Azi and Munira are drawn into a conspiracy, at the heart of which is Gomorrah: an exclusive online marketplace where anything can be acquired, and where the world’s worst individuals lurk. As he throws himself into uncovering Gomorrah’s dark secrets, it isn’t long before Azi realises that the stakes are high and the risks even higher when you’re no longer behind a screen.

The gates of Gomorrah have been opened. All hell is about to break loose.

Accomplished and chilling . . . Chatfield writes with real skill, intelligence, and, despite the grim story, humor
Publishers Weekly
A rollicking good cyber thriller - one to make William Gibson proud
Madison Smartt Bell
A sharp thriller that takes us deep into the digital underworld. Taut and tense . . . a well told, fast-paced story packed with contemporary relevance
Adam Hamdy

Chris Whitaker
Fast and funny, dangerous and blinding-bright . . . an adrenaline-rush of a book for our menacing times
Paul Cody
If espionage today is all about hack and counter-hack, which it clearly is, then Tom Chatfield has just written the classic twenty-first century spy thriller. Move over James Bond: Azi Bello has hacked your smartphone and he owns you.
Michael Ridpath
a seething knot of spies, hackers, terrorists, tech and humans: absolutely brilliant.
Carl Miller
A tight, fast-moving thriller. Like Three Days of the Condor for the internet age
Mason Cross
A techno-thriller with wit and style. It reminded me of Chris Brookmyre, and praise doesn't come higher than that.
Mick Herron
I read this from behind the sofa... I can't think of a better way to learn about hacking and the dark web . . . Halfway between a TED talk and rollercoaster!
Philippa Perry
Gripping, intelligent and stylish.
