What he knows could kill him. . .
'Gripping, intelligent and stylish' Sophie Hannah
A techno-thriller with wit and style. It reminded me of Chris Brookmyre, and praise doesn't come higher than that. (Mick Herron)
If you know what you're doing, you can find anything on the internet. Drugs, guns, porn, ideologies, elections, even lives and deaths are all up for sale . . . and everything must go.
Elite hacker Azi Bello lives his life in the technological underbelly of the 21st century. A loner, charmer, and lover of grey areas, he works for himself and answers to no one - until his online existence crashes violently into the real world.
The secretive but intriguing Munira has reached out to Azi for help, and her story has sparked his interest: Munira's cousin has been recruited by terrorists and, in her attempts to find out more, she has attracted the attention of some very dangerous people.
Now forced to go on the run, Azi and Munira are drawn into a conspiracy, at the heart of which is Gomorrah: an exclusive online marketplace where anything can be acquired, and where the world's worst individuals lurk. As he throws himself into uncovering Gomorrah's dark secrets, it isn't long before Azi realises that the stakes are high and the risks even higher when you're no longer behind a screen.
The gates of Gomorrah have been opened. All hell is about to break loose.
Praise for This is Gomorrah:
'A techno-thriller with wit and style.' Mick Herron
'Punchy, powerful and one hell of a wild ride, this is thriller writing at its absolute best' Chris Whitaker
'Tom Chatfield has written the classic twenty-first century thriller. Move over James Bond: Azi Bello has hacked your smartphone and he owns you.' Michael Ridpath
