about this book

In this fascinating and compelling book—a must-read for anyone who owns a computer—Misha Glenny exposes our governments’ multi-billion-dollar war against an ever-morphing, super smart new breed of criminal: the hacker.

The benefits of living in a digital, globalized society are enormous; so too are the dangers. We bank online, shop online, date, learn, work, and live online, but have the institutions that keep us safe on the streets learned to protect us from the deadly “new mafia” of cybercriminals? To answer this question, Glenny offers a vivid examination of the rise of the criminal hacking website DarkMarket and its ultimate fall. Along the way, he presents alarming and illuminating stories about both the shadowy individuals behind its scenes and the organizations tasked with bringing them to justice.

“[An] engaging tale of cops and robbers in cyberspace.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“An eminently readable, witty narrative that sustains suspense until the very last pages.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Misha Glenny tells us that cyber crime is right here and has been for years—hiding in plain sight. . . . Required reading.” —The New Yorker

“A truly remarkable story. . . . Magnificent.” —Financial Times

“This extraordinarily powerful book demonstrates how utterly we lack the shared supranational tools needed to fight cybercrime.” —Roberto Saviano, author of Gomorrah
