Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of CyberStorm comes a wild ride through the Wall Street underworld.

One minute Jake O'Connell is on top of the world, with a beautiful family and bright future as a stock broker in New York; the next it's all ripped away when he's embroiled in a fraud investigation, his childhood friend is murdered, and he finds himself on the run. Dodging the FBI and targeted by the Mob, Jake is thrown into a Wall Street underworld of crypto currencies and autonomous corporations, where he discovers a dark secret setting the world on a path to destruction. He must evade the shadowy forces hunting him and find a way to redemption - but the faster he runs, the deeper he becomes entangled. In the end his only path forward is to return to the ghosts of his past.

Darknet is a journey into the back alleys of global finance and cyber espionage, the story of one man's quest to redeem himself and save his family.

    Story
    "It wasn't as good as Cyberstorm for me..."

    Hmm, I wanted this to be more or equal to Cyberstorm. But it just didn't hit the same spot for me. I found myself continuously getting lost while it jumps around. It maybe a book that demands more concentration than what I was willing to give. So I gave it three stars.

    "Don't waste your time"

    Plot holes, weak motivations, shallow characters and shortcuts galore. Nothing like this author's other pieces. This feels like a rushed job. Spend your money elsewhere.

    "Kept my mind interested"

    This was the first book I've listened to from this author. The description sounded interesting so I gave it a try. Although at times I felt a little lost, I'd catch up a little later. The loss of a lifelong best friend was very touching. I loved this book!

    Story
    "I Really Wanted To Love It But Can't"

    The best part of this book is that it is halfway an "Action" story but it is free of profanity. Kudos Mathew Mather!

    Unfortunately this book will be a dated commodity. I learned the technical jargon a day before starting this book because I did a cursory browsing on the Internet in search of true Darknet and Deepweb technologies. I find that acknowledging that this book will soon be dated is ironic because it's story is future-reaching as I write this review in May 2016.

    The story is, of course, science fiction in scope. The overall plot is not plausible in any coming decade. By the time this plot could be in any way feasible, the methods by which we arrive at such a danger will be due to technology that is yet to exist. The author did a poor job of mixing the present with the future. I feel that the intertwining of fact and fiction was a mistake. He should have put more effort into making all the technology fictitious.

    I give the story a 3 because I enjoyed the mix of technology with the dialogue and action. Definitely not an edge-of-your-seat thriller but still somewhat enjoyable.

    The narrator gets 4 stars because he did a fine job.

    Based on the lack of profanity alone, I will give Matthew Mather another chance.

    "Whoa!"

    This book was amazing! It was intense, fast-paced and kept me on my toes. Some of the "techie" stuff was way over my head but it just made the story more exciting. I highly recommend this book. The narrator was fabulous . . . all the voices he had to do. But at times, I was so involved in the book, I thought there were more than just one person reading. Wonderful book!

    "Meh"

    Had hopes for this book but they didn't pan out. Some of the reviews that are high must be marketing ploys. Just too predictable in the plot and many of the main characters were flat. And some of the narrator's voices also really irritated me. I made it about halfway through (on kindle read and listen) and decided j had better things to do with my time, like clean the kitchen. C'est la vie..

    "Good Outline, bad book"

    At first I thought MM sent this outline into his editor, who skimmed it and thinking it was a book sent it to the publisher. Another reviewer said it seemed rushed. Rushed writing would explain all the telling and explaining and talking. Then I checked my review on Atopia and it seems this is just how this guy writes. He has good concepts, but needs a ghost writer. The narrator does not help.
