The Dark Net Paperback / softback
'One of the best Stephen King novels not written by the master himself' - New York Times*******************The dark net is an online shadowland for criminals to operate anonymously, but when a demonic force begins to hack the minds of its users there is nowhere left to hide. Twelve-year-old HANNAH has been fitted with a high-tech prosthetic that restores her sight, but can't understand why she can now see shadows surrounding certain people. LELA, an emotionally shut-off, technophobic journalist stumbles onto a story nobody wants her to uncover.
A story someone will kill to keep hidden. A former evangelist, MIKE, suffers demons - figurative and literal - and keeps an arsenal of weapons stored in the basement of the homeless shelter he runs. And DEREK is a hacker who believes himself a soldier, part of a cyber army dedicated to changing the world for the better. With the virus spreading throughout the net and an ancient evil threatening to break lose on the real world, it falls to these strangers to stop the rising darkness.
THE DARK NET is a cracked-mirror version of the digital nightmare we already live in, a timely and wildly imaginative techno-thriller about the evil that lurks in real and virtual spaces, and the power of a united few to fight back. ****************Praise for THE DARK NET'THE DARK NET is a megawatt defibrillator to the reader's heart' - Dean Koontz'An impressive, propulsive narrative velocity at work here' - Metro'THE DARK NET kicked my ass with its deft mash-up of both blackhat hacker culture and black magic.
