Description

An outsider in a foreign land. Her ruthless cyberstalker. She’ll fight tooth and nail for her digital privacy. By any means, if necessary.

Tokyo, the '90s When Alison Crane quit her environmental law practice and followed her hotshot investment banker boyfriend to Japan, she thought they'd only grow closer. But jobless and broke, Alison sits home alone all day—and most nights—isolated by culture shock, wobbly language skills, and her boyfriend's ambitions.

Desperate for company, she ventures onto the only avenue she has left—the brand-new digital frontier. Inside the confusing web of cyber chat rooms, Alison is approached by a charming Japanese man, and the two regularly meet online.

However, her digital safe haven soon becomes a virtual nightmare when a troll who despises foreigners taunts her with escalating threats of violence. As her predator's attacks intensify, Alison must parlay her legal smarts and budding computer skills to stand her ground, or she'll lose her only source of freedom. And maybe her life...

Elizabeth Wilkerson was one of Silicon Valley’s first cyberlawyers. Her debut novel, Tokyo Firewall, crackles with the energy of the '90s, a time of dial-up modems and floppy disks, an era when the internet was an unruly free-for-all where lawlessness reigned. Protagonist Alison Crane’s technological misadventures foreshadow issues grabbing headlines today—digital privacy, cyberterrorism, hacking, and online misogyny.

If you like tenacious heroines, sexy thrillers, and fast-paced action, then you’ll love Elizabeth Wilkerson’s '90s-era digital free-for-all.

An outsider in a foreign land. Her ruthless cyberstalker. She’ll fight tooth and nail for her digital privacy. By any means, if necessary.
