Dark Network finds Imogen Trager, the determined heroine of the “highly suspenseful” Faithless Elector, searching for the truth, and the nation without a president-elect as a contingent election looms. She’ll have to fight against time, a sinister network—even her own colleagues—to defeat the conspiracy to seize the presidency.
Left on the edges of the investigation, she joins forces with Trey Kelly, an FBI network specialist, also a Bureau outsider. Together, they struggle to find the back door the conspirators may have left unlocked. They’ll have to hurry. There’s only a month until the inauguration of a new president.
Although not based directly on events now gripping the world, Dark Network certainly resonates with them, offering a sharp critique of a US political system that didn’t anticipate the ruthlessness of a modern criminal-business complex. With fraught, evocative prose, James McCrone shows how easily power can be stolen from the people by a hidden network with a criminal agenda.
The FBI is leaking, the Attorney General is being undermined, politicians are spinning, social media is in an uproar and a murderous dark network is gunning for anyone standing in its way.
Author James McCrone shows a very deft hand at scene setting, action and detailed dialogue. He shows a deep understanding of many topics and technical aspects of his story. I felt like I was an insider during the entire investigation. The suspense kept me on the edge of my seat, it was hard to put the book down!
Another book is on its way, “Consent of the Governed”, and I can hardly wait!
For intricate plotting and excellent writing Dark Network gets 4.8 of 5 stars! The score would have been higher except for the handful of spelling errors.
