Tom Chatfield has constructed a cracker of a thriller about hackers and terrorism with The Gomorrah Gambit. Very timely read!

Azi Bello is a reclusive young man that has spent most of his life up until the book opens holed up in a shed located in his back yard.  He is a talented computer hacker and consequently has seemingly become enmeshed in the dark side of the internet.  Tipped off by a fellow hacker named Munira Azi decides to investigate an online market known as Gomorrah.  This is a site where anything at all can be accessed if one has the money.  A terrorist group decides that Azi and Munira are dangers to them and go after them.  This allows the duo to discover a huge conspiracy hatched by said  group.
     The idea behind the novel is a good one but I must confess that I could not hold onto the thread of the story due to the constant shifting back and forth between the characters, the introduction of characters and the plot.  As a reviewer I cannot recommend this novel to others and must tender a two star opinion of the book.
