The Dark Web is everywhere - and those who know where to look, and whom to ask, can find anything. Drugs, guns, porn, ideologies, lives and deaths are all up for sale...and everything must go.
Set in the technological underbelly of the 21st century, this conspiracy thriller follows elite hacker Azi Bello on a journey of discovery into the dark marketplace known as Gomorrah, within which the world's worst people trade lives and influence. Taking the listener between London, Berlin, Athens and Los Angeles, as well as into terrorist-controlled Syrian cities, This Is Gomorrah explores what it means to win and to lose at the global game of ideology and power.
A loner, charmer, idealist and connoisseur of other people's mistakes, Azi's life is spun around by a mysterious approach from a young Muslim woman called Munira, and before long his carefully crafted privacy comes crashing down. Munira is at her wits' end, a fellow hacker whose cousin has been recruited by terrorists and who has unearthed a terrible conspiracy in her struggle to bring him home. She needs Azi's help and connections to track him down.
But can she be trusted? Can Azi trust anyone when identities can be changed with just a few clicks?

Hi Tech Thriller
This is a really entertaining thriller set in the murky world of the dark net. I liked the unlikely hero and I found myself rooting for him as he bounced his way from one bad situation to another with astonishing rapidity. Some of the technical aspects eluded my comprehension but overall it's a fascinating thriller and warrants a sequel.

Excellent story performed beautifully
I’m not usually big on fiction but this book had me hooked. The story was full of pace, drama and complexity. I loved listening to it. This is Gomorrah is exquisitely written and performed brilliantly. I hope you all enjoy it just as much as I did.
