“When I wrote my seventh novel, I sought to write an action-packed thriller but without the clichés and tropes readers often find in other books of the genre,” says Eade. “I thought of how people abuse the Internet, and how it has enabled cyber bullies to hide behind phony names, making it easier to hurt people anonymously. This gave me the idea of doing a story about hiring a killer anonymously online. Little did I know that the ’Dark Web’ had many such sites”
Searing, exhilarating and topical, ‘Killer.com’ puts a new spin on the abuse of the Internet.
Murder is a mouse click away in the fifth installment of the #1 bestsellling Legal Thriller Series.
