This is a 5* read in my opinion. I have read quite a few of Toby Neal's books and can recommend all of them.
Here is the blurb from Amazon
Special Agent Sophie Ang's emotions are battered by a child kidnapping case that goes badly wrong. In tracking the criminal ring, her rogue data analysis program D.A.V.I.D. identifies an anomaly that leads her into a cat-and-mouse game online with a deadly enemy whose motives are unclear. The chase lures her through dark corridors of cyberspace into a confrontation with the violence from her past that sent her fleeing to the United States. She'll need every skill she's learned to defeat her worst nightmare--and the stakes couldn't be higher.
Can Sophie both defeat her past, and protect her heart from a fascinating cyber vigilante?
This is the first book (270 pages) in the Paradise Crime Series by Toby Neal, classed as a cyberspace thriller/police procedure mystery.
Special Agent Sophie Ang is a FBI Agent, a martial artist who has escaped an abusive marriage. The book opens with a bang and a rescue of a kidnapped child.
This is a well written novel, fast paced, action police procedure story with layers of cyber stuff written so well that even a technophobic reader like myself can understand it without getting bogged down in ‘cyber speak.’ It is a psychological thriller as well and all the layers are woven together effortlessly.
A great book.
If you like police procedural/mystery/thriller books with added bits and pieces, well written prose, no jumping around, a nice flow, good pace and great characters then you will enjoy this book.
