"A New King of Thrillers on the Horizon." -Sisters in Crime

From the Author

A friend of mine once asked, "What would Jack London do with his thriller, The Assassination Bureau. Ltd., had he lived in the beginning of the 21st century?"

Jack London wrote a thriller? I was stumped. So I rushed to my local library to read it. "The Assassination Bureau, Ltd., is an unfinished novel by Jack London, later completed by Robert L. Fish. The idea of an agency devoted to "extirpating" socially detrimental characters was fascinating, alas, the novel left an unsatisfactory feeling in my reading taste.

My friend's question has haunted me for over a year, when at last world events set a spark in my writerly imagination. What, indeed, if a novelist set out to write a thriller in a similar vein, in the age of WikiLeaks, the Occupy Movement, and the general discontent with the World Order, that we witness today?

In the age of crowdsourcing - a collaboration of countless minds from across boundaries - the idea of a single person (Ivan Dragomiloff in London's novel) deciding arbitrarily who ought to be assassinated ("extirpated"), seemed incompatible. A collaborative effort, on the other hand, was much more alluring.

It was, thus, natural that in the time of social networking the people should decide who is detrimental for the wellbeing of society.

WikiJustice was born.

Format: Kindle Edition
Books like Wiki Justice don't come along very often.

Playing off of recent socio-political movements and the power of social networking, the author spins a tale of intrigue that is seldomly seen.

Damian Allende is well intentioned with his cyber justice scheme, but instead of just creating a public outrage against the evildoers it morphs into a death knell for the individuals he targets. It was not the form of justice that he envisioned when he put his agenda into action. It is out of control.

What would the world be like if government agencies, seeing the success of his program, attempt to use Wikijustice to accomplish the elimination of "enimies of state"?

As with "The Fifth Internationale", Jack presents situations and events that cause the reader to wonder "what if this were real?"

The pages will fly as one insideous sub-plot after another is revealed.

Wiki Justice is one of Jack Kings best. It will haunt you well after the last page is turned.

If you love thrillers and you're not a fan of Jack King, you should seriously consider becoming one.

No spoilers here: Wikijustice is a networking site where people from around the world get together to judge "the untouchables" - politicians, corporate bosses, cops, and others who stand above the law of institutional justice. Guilty verdicts are supported by overwhelming evidence supplied by documents leaked to a whistleblower site. But despite the guilty verdicts cast by millions of participants who are often victims of corporate or state policy, or tired of state crimes committed in their name, it's business as usual for the elites and their henchmen - their abuses continue. Until one day a guilty verdict is not enough and the people take the execution of justice to the next step. Lynchings begin. But do they? That's where the plot thickens.

Wikijustice as a mashup of Jack London's The Assassination Bureau Ltd and wikileaks? It's more. It's a thriller for the 21st century, with the occupy movement, and the 1% against the rest. A great read.
