On May 16th the first part of the series “Netwars – The Code” by M. Sean Coleman will be released, and for a weekly reading pleasure you can look forward to the other five parts as well.
Here you can find a short synopsis (from http://www.luebbe.de/Digital/Spannung/Details/Id/978-3-8387-5595-3):
Netwars: The Code. A high-tech serial thriller from the dark side of the net. Episode 1. — Welcome to the Deep Web. Those parts of the internet no search engine explores. The place where you can buy anything. Drugs, children, weapons. Anyone can do it. And get away free. — Anthony Prince, head of PrinceSec, a firm which provides high-tech security for the government and major corporations, dies in a plane crash when crossing the English Channel. Responsible for Prince’s death is a hacker named Strider. His real name is Scott Mitchell and in his day job at the National Cyber Crime Unit he uses legitimate means to get the bad guys. As Strider, his means are less legal. On the same night, PrinceSec is the target of a cyber-attack. When the NCCU is called to assess the damage, a link is found between Prince and a criminal hacker group called Black Flag. The race is on for Mitchell to protect his identity as Strider and to stop Black Flag before it’s too late. — M. Sean Coleman began his writing career as one of the original writers on Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Online, and has since written and produced original, award-winning shows for MSN, O2, Sony Pictures, Fox, the BBC and Channel 4. He continues to write novels, graphic novels and tv scripts from his home in London.
