When a reformed hacker is called in to solve a businessman’s mysterious disappearance, the hunt quickly becomes deadly.
Young, bright and sexy, Carla Vitale has been handpicked to run Supertech, Africa’s leading independent engineering firm. Then one Friday afternoon in Cape Town, her dream is shattered. Her boss and mentor, Nial Townley, disappears, his luxury vehicle is found in a crevice at the bottom of Chapman’s Peak and $USD 20m is missing from the Supertech’s overseas accounts. Three months later and the police are no closer to solving the riddle
No job, no car, no phone, Carla turns to the one person she believes can help: software hacker turned day-trader, Daniel Le Fleur. But Le Fleur’s maintaining a low profile in Bantry Bay and he’s in no mood to ruin the serendipity.
A terrifying techno thriller that takes place in cosmopolitan Cape Town and immerses readers into the high-stakes world of financial crime, corporate fraud, and software hacking–not to mention sex, murder, and revenge. For fans of fast-paced thrillers and crime novels with a gritty, darker edge.
