The new thriller by best-selling author Zoë Beck: cool, highly topical, deadly

About

London, in the not too distant future: A drug dealer is floating down the Thames – dead. A protection racketeer disappears without a trace. And Ellie Johnson is certain that she is in danger too.

Ellie is the head of the hottest (and the most illegal) startup in London: via the app she developed, users can order drugs of the highest quality, which are then delivered via drones. Completely anonymous, secure, perfectly organised. There is only one catch: the entirety of the London underground feels threatened by her competitive business model and wants to see Ellie dead – and so it’s not long before there is a bounty on her head. Ellie decides to fight, yet her enemies are powerful, and they lie in wait at every street corner.
