An intriguing thriller based in a shady hidden world of cyber-hackers. Bryn writes alternative histories and is perplexed when he discovers his bank account emptied and computer wiped, a research trip takes him down a very unexpected path. Bryn appears at times to be somewhat naive, however that is part of his charm and is a nice foil against the crusading hackers and business sharks. This is a fairly slow burner, with each scenario adding a piece to the jigsaw. Robin Duval ensures the technology side of things is explained well and although there are times when it all seems slightly fantastical, it does feel as though this could be a reality. ‘Not Single Spies’ is an entertaining and enjoyable slice of fiction. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Not Single Spies by Robin Duval

A world where privacy is a thing of the past...Bryn Williams lives quietly in Ealing, West London, writing popular history articles for magazines. Things have not been going well for him - his computer has been hacked and his bank account emptied. He is increasingly aware that his actions - on the street and online - are being monitored. The woman he loves stops returning his phone calls and emails, and he becomes concerned for her safety. Then on a research trip to an English Civil War battlefield, he stumbles on a dead body in a car and his life changes forever...Bryn finds himself in the middle of a very different conflict. Drawn up on one side are the forces of government and good order. On the other, a network of cyber-hackers committed to halting global warming. Climate change is now at a tipping point - the polar ice caps are melting, fertile land is turning to desert and populations are on the move. By destroying digital systems worldwide, the hackers hope to make all modern means of communication unusable, reverse economic progress, and save what's left of a fragile earth. Not Single Spies is a political thriller which draws on themes of considerable relevance to the 21st century. It is set in a society dominated by the Internet, where communication systems are an open book to government and big business...and the only people for whom that book remains closed are the shadowy figures who pull the strings of power.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
