Shelfari edited the description of The Morpheus Network Thursday, September 20, 2012.
Forensic cyber sleuth Lex Sadler and his new colleague, the feisty and brilliant Cat Haliday, are working to uncover a cyber-criminal operation which has been wreaking havoc across the globe. The ‘botnet’ Morpheus steals bona fide identities from unsuspecting members of the public and uses them for highly illegal – and highly profitable – purposes. US presidential hopeful, Greg Langer, is hell-bent on getting to the Oval Office and needs to bolster his campaign finances. Somehow he needs to get his hands on millions. An ex-spook with a deadly secret to hide, he’ll do anything to keep it safe – even murder. But when his trusted friend Stezenski recruits an assassin, there are dead bodies everywhere. As Lex and Cat begin to unearth the mystery of the Morpheus network – who is controlling it and why – they soon realise that nothing is quite what it seems. People are not who they appear to be. Trying to stay one step ahead of the FBI, who are also searching for the criminals, is one thing; trying to stay alive is quite another. An exceptionally well-constructed and gripping thriller, The Morpheus Network propels the reader on a rollercoaster ride through the sleazy underworld of cyber criminals, murderers and corrupt politicians.
