When Making Your Fortune Could Cost Your Life!
Cyber-crime didn't exist in the 1980s. Or did it? Clem Chambers' gripping techno-thriller series, The Hacker Chronicles, is a reminder that the dark art of hacking is as old as network technology. Dial Up for Murder is set in 1984, long before the revolutionary advent of the Internet and World Wide Web. The hacker hero Peter is an entrepreneurial nerd struggling to attract paying subscribers to his new-fangled network. A chance meeting with a shady customer soon has the young computer whizz raking in the dough. Yet before long, he finds himself sucked into a dangerous world, consorting with gangsters and running for his life. Will Peter live long enough to spend his criminal spoils? The Hacker Chronicles details Peter's terrifying yet financially-lucrative descent into a dangerous world of real-life crime and ruthless 1980s gangsters.
