This is Gomorrah

This is Gomorrah

The Dark Web is 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.

Set in the technological underbelly of the 21st century, this conspiracy thriller follows elite hacker Azi Bello on a journey of discovery into the dark marketplace known as Gomorrah, within which the world’s worst people trade lives and influence. 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.

A loner, charmer, idealist and connoisseur of other people’s mistakes, Azi’s life is spun around by a mysterious approach from a young Muslim woman called Munira, and before long his carefully crafted privacy comes crashing down. Munira is at her wits’ end, a fellow hacker whose cousin has been recruited by terrorists, and who has unearthed a terrible conspiracy in her struggle to bring him home. She needs Azi’s help and connections to track him down.

But can she be trusted? Can Azi trust anyone when identities can be changed with just a few clicks. . ?

Reviews

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 rollicking good cyber thriller - one to make William Gibson proud
Madison Smartt Bell
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
Gripping, intelligent and stylish.
Sophie Hannah
A swift and spiky view of modern espionage
James Swallow
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
Chris Whitaker
Accomplished and chilling . . . Chatfield writes with real skill, intelligence, and, despite the grim story, humor
Publishers Weekly
Fast and funny, dangerous and blinding-bright . . . an adrenaline-rush of a book for our menacing times
Paul Cody
a seething knot of spies, hackers, terrorists, tech and humans: absolutely brilliant.
Carl Miller
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
A sharp thriller that takes us deep into the digital underworld. Taut and tense . . . a well told, fast-paced story packed with contemporary relevance
