Realistic With Great Characters
4.5 out of 5 stars
I dove right into this one not realizing just how up my alley is was going to be. I should have known when I saw that it said cybercriminal and Dark Web in the first sentence of the synopsis. Honestly, I picked this book up because I wanted to read the second book in the series without realizing it was a book two. So, I figured I should real book one before jumping into the second and figure out who Lisa Tanchik is and what makes her tick.
I’m glad that I did because Black Nowhere was a fantastic book that I really enjoyed. I was honestly a little worried because I work in tech and I have a friend whose job is actually very similar to Lisa’s. I was worried that Hirsch would either try and be too “cute” with the technology in it or try and be too specific/dumb it down too much. He didn’t do that. He didn’t shy away from explaining things but didn’t go into a ton of detail. He didn’t use the wrong terms and didn’t mess too much of the technology up. There was a few things that he didn’t do that my friend mentioned to me that she’s helped with while looking into bitcoin related payments, but nothing that the average reader would ever notice.
Black Nowhere was a great book with a great main character. Lisa was flawed and she knows it. Her and her “black dog” had their ups and downs and I couldn’t wait to finish the book to see what was going to happen – not just to Kite and its founder, but to Lisa.
Overall, a great story with great narration that I absolutely finished in a few sittings. I’m excited to jump into the next book in the series and I hope it’s as enjoyable as this was.
Chasing a cybercriminal into the pitch-black heart of the Dark Web.
Special Agent Lisa Tanchik is the best at taking down cybercriminals. So when the FBI discovers a multibillion-dollar black market online, she’s tasked with finding the creator and bringing him to justice. Donning one of her many digital disguises, Tanchik goes undercover into the network.
Brilliant college student Nate Fallon started his site as an idealistic experiment. But his platform has made illegal trade not only more efficient – but also more dangerous. Now the FBI aren’t the only ones out to get him. As profits soar, a criminal organization casts its monstrous gaze on Fallon, and danger leaps from cyberspace into reality.
Feeling pressure from both sides of the law, Fallon is forced to make a decision with shattering consequences. Can Agent Tanchik find Fallon before his dangerous infrastructure falls into the wrong hands?
