Although not based directly on events now gripping the world, Dark Network certainly resonates with them, offering a sharp critique of a US political system that didn't anticipate the ruthlessness of a modern criminal-business complex. With fraught, evocative prose, James McCrone shows how easily power can be stolen from the people by a hidden network with a criminal agenda.

The FBI is leaking, the Attorney General is being undermined, politicians are spinning, social media is in an uproar and a murderous dark network is gunning for anyone standing in its way.
