New Tech Thriller Series: The Hacker Chronicles
UK- London | Oct 12 2012 | (22:57:02 - EDT)
Cyber-crime didn’t exist in the 1980’s. Or did it? Mel C Quarters’ brand new ‘tech-thriller’ series, “The Hacker Chronicles,” is as nostalgic as it is gripping – a reminder that the ‘dark art’ of hacking is as old as network technology.
“Part 1, Kill -9,” is set in 1984, long before the revolutionary advent of the Internet and World Wide Web. 'Hacker hero’ Peter is an entrepreneurial nerd struggling to attract paying subscribers to his new-fangled computer network.
A chance meeting with a shady customer soon has the young computer whizz raking in the dough. Yet before long, he finds himself sucked into a dangerous world, consorting with gangsters and running for his life. Will Peter live long enough to spend his criminal spoils?
Published by London’s Thrust Books, “The Hacker Chronicles” details Peter’s terrifying yet financially-lucrative descent into a dangerous world of real-life crime and ruthless 1980’s gangsters. In computing, kill is a command that is used to stop a process running. Kill -9 means: terminate immediately.
