netwars 2 — Down Time: RoguePart 1 of 6

Mutual funds. Savings accounts. The stock exchange. It takes just one cyber attack to crash it all.

Down Time sees the return of vigilante hacker Scott Mitchell, whose victory against hacker group Black Flag was just a minor setback for the cyber criminals. With a new recruit under his wing, The Salesman is ready to launch another attack in this high-tech serial thriller set in the anonymity of the Dark Web.

The National Cyber Crime Unit (NCCU) in London have joined forces with the FBI to battle a new piece of malicious code threatening to bring the world financial market to its knees.

Meanwhile, several elite traders have been found dead in strange circumstances — from heart attacks to kinky sex acts. Could their deaths be connected?

They made more noise, and left a bigger trail. They were so accustomed to being the centre of attention, that they never noticed him until it was far too late. Even if they saw him watching them, it would never occur to them that he would want to kill them. Somehow their arrogance made killing them all the sweeter. It was their sudden realisation that they would never achieve their lofty ambitions, and that, ultimately, they would only ever be remembered as a victim, and not as the great success they had always assumed they were.
