Publisher's Summary

Chasing a cybercriminal into the pitch-black heart of the Dark Web.

Special Agent Lisa Tanchik is the best at taking down cybercriminals. So when the FBI discovers a multibillion-dollar black market online, she’s tasked with finding the creator and bringing him to justice. Donning one of her many digital disguises, Tanchik goes undercover into the network. 

Brilliant college student Nate Fallon started his site as an idealistic experiment. But his platform has made illegal trade not only more efficient - but also more dangerous. Now the FBI aren’t the only ones out to get him. As profits soar, a criminal organization casts its monstrous gaze on Fallon, and danger leaps from cyberspace into reality.

Feeling pressure from both sides of the law, Fallon is forced to make a decision with shattering consequences. Can Agent Tanchik find Fallon before his dangerous infrastructure falls into the wrong hands?

Critic Reviews

Black Nowhere is a next-gen thriller that will leave your fingertips blistered from scrolling pages so fast. Prepare to lose sleep!” --Blake Crouch, New York Times bestselling author of Dark Matter

Black Nowhere is an extremely unsettling thriller that haunted me for weeks. It’s a shrewd critique of Silicon Valley startup culture, a brisk FBI procedural, and a chilling look at a very modern form of amorality.” --Dave Eggers, author of The Circle and Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist

Black Nowhere is a blast. A gripping thriller with wonderfully nuanced characters. If you haven’t been reading Reece Hirsch, it’s time to start.” --Lisa Lutz, New York Times bestselling author of The Passenger

GREAT!!!!

If you’ve ever heard of Ross Ulbricht or Silk Road and the TOR browser used for the dark web then you have the basics for this book. Reece Hirsch has taken this story mixed it with a little Steve Jobs ingenuity and created a really good FBI flawed geek vs college geek with an overblown ego and visions of grandeur.
Emily Sutton Smith does an excellent job narrating.
This cat and mouse story is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Listen to the real thing!!

I listened to the entire book and am severely down rating it because it is mostly a fictionalized version of true story American Kingpin by Nick Bilton which was published two years ago. American Kingpin is about Ross Ulbricht and his dark web billion dollar illegal drug website named Silk Road. (Silk Road was not just illegal drugs but anything illegal.) The similarities between BLACK NOWHERE and American Kingpin are far too great to be passed off as mere coincidence.

Good book and narrative

Like this story. It wasn't too technical to distract from the story. Just enough info about the characters not to drag it out.

A great read...

It really is such a great book! Smart characters written by a clever author and read by an equally clever narrator. I am a huge fan of both BUT even if you’re a novice reader/listener of either you will DEFINITELY be a fan by the end of this read. So...
GO FOR IT!
