Hack is a modern day thriller about Dan Langley, an innocent teenager who finds out how powerful the internet is and that not everyone on the internet is who they say they are.

Dan is a typical 16 year old teenage geek who loves computers and has an interest in hacking. He starts by innocently dabbling in hacking but soon finds himself in deep trouble. Things start to go pear-shaped when Dan meets another hacker online called Angle. Dan is tasked with hacking an army drone but what will he do when he finds out that the very same drone is being launched to perform a hit and run in London? How will he deal with the pressure when both the American and British police come hounding him for information? How will he show himself innocent when all evidence points towards him?

Follow the story of Dan in the exciting book of adventure and fear, where Dan realises the true extent the internet has upon everyone. This book is great for the reluctant reader, especially tech-loving teens. It has short, sharp chapters that make you want to keep reading to find out what happens next. It is fast paced and is real page turner that will have you speeding through to the end.
