New book in the exciting Hackers series of thrillers is published
About the Book:
The threat of disclosure after years in obscurity found our three hackers in a quandary. Do they take the accolades handed out by the highest power in the world, or cower beneath their cloak of mystery forever?
Passing years and wealth beyond most people’s wildest dreams would be no compensation for being disclosed as thieves.
An empire built from their spoils had led to a mix of overcoming evil on an unprecedented level whilst seeking to prevent the extinction of endangered species.
With the realisation that nothing lasts forever, plans must be made for the next move.
About the Author:
L. J. Greatrex was born one of three siblings in a small village in the Midlands, having only moved around the same village three times with just a small break when living in West Kirby on the Wirral. L. J.'s career began with General Electric and progressed through to the financial sector of the steel industry, spending the most recent years with a classic car parts company and today as their Financial Health Consultant.
Over many years travelling the globe with family and friends for pleasure, the ideas developed and used in the Hackers series of novels (which includes Conscious Revenge, Payback, Just Deserts, Without A Doubt, Doubt Revisited, Informed Decision, Dark Forces and Misconception) have been in part attributed to these experiences; that and a vivid imagination has helped create the characters and situations in these thriller novels.
Excerpt from the Book:
“Keep your head down,” Paul shouted above the confusion, “it looks like a raid.”
Before I could take evasive action, a heavy boot kicked out, and I fell to the floor in agony. Keeping my head covered by my arms, I narrowly missed a second boot as the two ran to the door, firing guns randomly to avoid being pursued.
From screaming and shouting, to complete silence as the pair made their intentions to kill anyone getting in their way quite clear. They shot widely in all directions as some players screamed, and cries rang out as the shots ricocheted and flew randomly, piercing flesh in their attempted to escape.
Paul was thrown to the floor by security men, as a whole team of muscle-bound bouncers raced to the scene. I heard his head hit the side of the elevator and watched in horror as he slowly moved to one side to prevent being trampled underfoot.
The elevator door opened, and two tourists began entering the room, only to step back in haste having seen the commotion, “give me your hand,” one said to Paul as I tried to move him.
“Where are you hurt,” I said, seeing blood oozing through his shirt.
“I’m not sure, but it hurts like hell,” he murmured, not wishing to attract attention as the second wave of raiders wearing clown masks fired into the air.
