The Last Hack by Christopher Brookmyre

  • "If you haven’t read Mr. Brookmyre before The Last Hack is a great place to start even if it is the latest in long series featuring Jack Parlabane, a reporter who on occasion will cut a corner or two to get the big scoop. In this one he’s getting back on his feet working for an online news start-up when he finds out that a young hacker is investigating the same story he is. Alone they won’t get anywhere but together using their varied talents, Jack with his old school gum shoe approach and Sam with her long reach deep into the dark web, they’re going to break a story that will stun the world. Written with his usual witty panache, Christopher Brookmyre has written another winner.” -- Pete

  • There are no women on the Internet.

    It is one of the cardinal rules of hacking, and not since Lisbeth Salander famously violated it in Stieg Larsson’s Millenium series has the maxim been so compellingly broken as in The Last Hack, the new Jack Parlabane thriller from one of the smartest minds in crime fiction, Christopher Brookmyre.

    Sam Morpeth has had to grow up way too fast. Left to fend for a younger sister with learning difficulties when their mother goes to prison, she is forced to watch her dreams of university evaporate. But Sam learns what it is to be truly powerless when a stranger begins to blackmail her online. Meanwhile, reporter Jack Parlabane seems to have finally gotten his career back on track with a job at a flashy online news start-up, but his success has left him indebted to a volatile source on the wrong side of the law. Now that debt is being called in, and it could cost him everything. Thrown together by a common enemy, Sam and Jack are about to discover they have more in common than they realize–and might be each other’s only hope.
