Waiting for minimum critic reviews


"Internet security expert, Benjamin Hackwell, has put his life back together when he receives e-mail from his daughter, Caitline. Eager for any communication from her, Ben watches in horror as Caitline stars in her own snuff flick. Determined to find out if what he has seen is real, Ben discovers that all of Caitline's bank accounts are closed, her phone is disconnected, and her whereabouts unknown.

Ben's investigation plunges him into the underworld of the dark Web where data is hidden. The electronic information that identifies and furthers man's noblest ambitions also can promote identity theft, virtual prostitution, and murder by remote control. The metadata that surrounds that information and makes activities such as text messaging and online banking possible can be manipulated to deceive, enslave, and destroy as well.

Metadata Murders is a saga of man's definition of what it means to be human. Beyond his programming skill or knowledge of the Internet, Ben's quest challenges the truth of human commitment. It tests whether man's love for others can triumph over the basest aspects of our existence and bring true knowledge to light."
