FROM THE BACK COVER – DARKNET

Jake O’Connell leaves a life of crime and swears he’ll never return, but his new life as a stock broker in New York is ripped away when his childhood friend Sean Womack is murdered.

Thousands of miles away in Hong Kong, scientist Jin Huang finds a list of wealthy dead people in a massive banking conspiracy. Problem is, some of the people don’t stay dead. As Jin begins her investigation, she’s petrified to discover her own name on the growing list of dead-but-alive.

On the run, Jake O’Connell and Jin Huang race across continents to uncover a dark secret spreading like a cancer into the world. Why was Sean killed, and how is the list of wealthy dead connected? Are some of them really coming back to life? But all this becomes irrelevant when Jake’s family is attacked…
