The BlurbWhat if all your secrets were put online?
Sam Morpeth is growing up way too fast, left to fend for a younger sister with learning difficulties when their mother goes to prison and watching her dreams of university evaporate. But Sam learns what it is to be truly powerless when a stranger begins to blackmail her online, drawing her into a trap she may not escape alive.
Who would you turn to?
Meanwhile, reporter Jack Parlabane has finally got his career back on track, but his success has left him indebted to a volatile source on the wrong side of the law. Now that debt is being called in, and it could cost him everything.
What would you be capable of?
Thrown together by a mutual enemy, Sam and Jack are about to discover they have more in common than they realise - and might be each other's only hope.
In 1999 I used to play a Computer game called Championship Manager 99/00. It was totally addictive and I spent many a long night telling myself that I would have just one more game and then end up spending most of the night playing it to take Aston Villa to the UEFA cup final. This book was my 2017 equivalent of Championship Manager. Like Christopher Brookmyres last book Black Widow, this is a totally addictive page turner of a story. This book is a tension filled, fast paced story set in the world of hacking and is told through both Jack and Sam. It makes you think about your online habits and just what kind of breadcrumb trail you leave on the Internet every time you update your status or even mark a book as read. I didnt have a clue how it was going to end or what route the story was going to go down. Unlike my review its a fantastic piece of writing that I didnt want to end. Highly recommended.
