Hackers proving that no system is really secure.
Abusive child carers.
"Honorable" members of society buying photos of abused children on the internet, or worse, abusing children themselves, making profit with such photos, discarding the "objects" after use.
All of them play their part in this crime thriller, but there's Doug, the revenge killer.

Hi there - Johnson sent me an email on 17th Sept telling me to contact you here for my requested update to The Hack under the Editorial Review section. I have a testimonial style comment from a 35 year US law enforcement veteran who read the book and wrote to me to extolling the virtues of my authentic story. I'm a Brit writing about international crime so this is a great endorsement of my writing and I'd like it included if that is acceptable. I have copied it below for your consideration. Thank you for your help, as ever. Will Patching
PROFESSIONAL LAW ENFORCEMENT TESTIMONIAL...
Mr. Patching is a crime fiction writer who guides the reader into the shadows, but draws you back out into the light with the help of "ultimate justice".
"The Hack" is a work of fiction that deals with non-fictional issues - a novel that brought back memories of similar investigations I have experienced throughout my career, including those undertaken in cooperation with the Asian law enforcement family.
The author asks of the reader:
Is the character "Hunter" an evil killer or is he a devoted advocate? Is he truly good or purely evil?
Are his actions, by any definition - legally, morally, emotionally, and/or spiritually - justified?
Who are the real evil ones?
Those with a warped sense of perceived power, privilege, and perversion, who believe they rule the planet... or... those who strongly believe in the concepts of truth, honor and justice?
"The Hack" is a thoroughly enjoyable novel and very difficult to put down. The writer is an excellent, highly talented author, in my humble opinion. I look forward to reading more from Mr. Patching.
