Synopsis: When the biggest player in British cybercrime faces destruction by some serious Islamic extremists, he knows it’s time to settle old scores and play the biggest scam of his life - before bailing out fast.
Marcus King is an old school gangster - a crime lord, who’s left behind the old school crime. He’s maneuvered his business into the leafy lanes of the suburbs and now, in place of pimps and dealers, his team consists of the best graduate geeks that money can bribe. No brothels, no casinos and no drugs - he’s dragged serious, organised crime well and truly into the 21st Century. From credit card cloning and skimming to Internet spamming and scamming, he is the King of Cyber Land.
He has more cash, more foot soldiers and more connections than ever, but now his world is under threat - targeted by the money making side of terrorism. They want everything. His entire operation. Either Marcus gives it to them, or they will take it – plain and simple. He understands the need for power, for money and for respect and he knows how to fight and win against anyone who comes at him. But how does he defeat fanaticism? This time he’s beat and he knows it.
His last remaining option is to orchestrate a deal. His entire operation - in exchange for his life. He’s ready to retire; he’s grafted his whole life chasing his dream and now it’s time for his very own land of milk and honey…
Before he gets there though, he has one last game to play and a huge score to settle. He has a plan; it’s audacious and it’s daring. It will elevate his smartest geek into the cyber halls of fame and leave a legacy so great, his name will be whispered in awe for generations to come. But, most of all, it will teach these terrorist fucks - that this time - they messed with the wrong gangster. He’ll walk away into his new life, free from the past…
But what if the past can’t be buried and old scores aren’t completely settled?
