‘Thriller writing at its absolute best’ Chris Whitaker

‘Gripping, intelligent and stylish’ Sophie Hannah

An exclusive online marketplace where anything and everything is for sale. Guns and porn. Identities and elections. Lives and deaths.

The war on terror is no longer just fought on the ground. In Syria, Islamic Republic recruits are now learning to spread fear online. But they’ve left a clue to their deadly next move . . .

Lonesome hacker Azi Bello is nobody’s idea of a hero. Except his skills have caught the attention of a mysterious espionage unit, who think he might have what it takes to stop this evil force. Sent on a mission which could cost him his life, Azi’s ultimate destination is Gomorrah.

But can he make it out alive?

‘A techno-thriller with wit and style’ Mick Herron

‘A beguiling blend of riveting hacker lore, sharp dialogue and inventive action scenes’ Sunday Times

‘Tense . . . a well-told, fast-paced story packed with contemporary relevance’ Adam Hamdy

A rollicking good cyber thriller - one to make William Gibson proud

a seething knot of spies, hackers, terrorists, tech and humans: absolutely brilliant.

A sharp thriller that takes us deep into the digital underworld. Taut and tense . . . a well told, fast-paced story packed with contemporary relevance
Mick Herron
A techno-thriller with wit and style. It reminded me of Chris Brookmyre, and praise doesn't come higher than that.
Mason Cross
A tight, fast-moving thriller. Like Three Days of the Condor for the internet age
Publishers Weekly
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

Gripping, intelligent and stylish.

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!
Michael Ridpath
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.
Chris Whitaker

Chatfield pulls off a beguiling blend of riveting hacker lore, sharp dialogue and inventive action scenes
