Ian Sutherland was brought up in the Outer Hebrides, idyllic remote islands off the west coast of Scotland. In an effort to escape the monotonous miles of heather, bracken and wild sheep, Ian read avidly, dreaming of one day arriving in a big city like London. And then, at the tender age of 12 he was unexpectedly uprooted to Peckham, an inner city suburb of South-East London. Ian quickly discovered that the real London was a damn sight more gritty and violent than the version in his books and shown on tv. Undeterred, Ian did what he did best, and buried his head in books, dreaming of other places to escape to. Roll forward some years, and Ian can still be found with his head in a book. Or, given that he enjoyed a successful career in the IT industry, an eBook Reader. And now, having travelled a fair bit of the globe in person and even more of it via the Internet, Ian has settled right in the centre of London, the city he finally came to love. Here, he writes gritty, violent crime thrillers full of well-rounded characters, set in and around London and its suburbs. His stories also feature the online world that most of us jump into blindly each day, but Ian exposes its underbelly and dramatically illustrates how dangerous the internet can be for the unwary. SOCIAL ENGINEER is a short introductory novella and features Brody Taylor, an elite computer hacker helping a pharmaceutical company defend against a cyberattack from Chinese hackers. INVASION OF PRIVACY is the first full-length novel in the series, and pits Brody against a vicious serial killer luring young women to their deaths and a voyeuristic website impervious to all known hacking techniques. TAKING UP SERPENTS is the second novel in the series where Brody races to stop a cyberweapon that is scheduled to end the lives of thousands of innocent people in the next twenty-four hours.Read more Read less
