When a family is torn apart by the inexplicable death of their son, and the discovery that he has been connected with players in a dark online world, Detective John Swift is called in to investigate. Swift finds more than he bargained for as he is immersed deeper and deeper in the Deep Web, a shadowy region of the Internet where unimaginable dangers lurk.
Dark Web by T. J. Brearton is a first-rate thriller that explores the heights of spine tingling suspense and the depths of dark human despair. The author includes just enough technical detail to keep the reader in the loop without data dumps, spending most of the story exploring the journeys the characters take as Swift races against time to untangle a web of real and virtual crimes.
Don’t start this book if you don’t have enough time to finish it in one sitting. I promise you, once you start, you won’t be able to put it down. I give it four stars.
