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.
A rollicking good cyber thriller - one to make William Gibson proud
A tight, fast-moving thriller. Like Three Days of the Condor for the internet age
A techno-thriller with wit and style. It reminded me of Chris Brookmyre, and praise doesn't come higher than that.
Gripping, intelligent and stylish.
A swift and spiky view of modern espionage
Chatfield pulls off a beguiling blend of riveting hacker lore, sharp dialogue and inventive action scenes
Punchy, powerful and one hell of a wild ride, this is thriller writing at its absolute best
Accomplished and chilling . . . Chatfield writes with real skill, intelligence, and, despite the grim story, humor
Fast and funny, dangerous and blinding-bright . . . an adrenaline-rush of a book for our menacing times
a seething knot of spies, hackers, terrorists, tech and humans: absolutely brilliant.
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!
A sharp thriller that takes us deep into the digital underworld. Taut and tense . . . a well told, fast-paced story packed with contemporary relevance
