FLASHMOB with Author Christopher Farnsworth
Critically acclaimed author, Christopher Farnsworth, has proven himself to be a pro at seamlessly combining history, biotechnology, and modern-day action. In his latest novel, FLASHMOB, Christopher presents an unstoppable high concept thriller about social media and the dark net that rivals the work of James Rollins and Brad Thor. In FLASHMOB, gifted troubleshooter John Smith (introduced in 2016’s Killfile) is working for the Los Angeles-based clandestine organization One Percent, where he cleans up the messes of those rich enough to afford him. Smith discovers a new threat called Downvote, an encrypted site on the “dark net” that lists the names of celebrities and offers a hefty reward for anyone who can kill them.
Motivated by money and revenge, he goes on the trail of the people behind Downvoter. He meets a reclusive billionaire living at sea and his scary-smart female bodyguard who becomes Smith’s partner in his quest. The hunt takes them from Hong Kong to Bucharest to Reykjavik to a luxury gambling resort deep in the Laotian jungle. The only way Downvote’s creator can stop Smith is to kill him… because while this diabolical genius can run, there’s no hiding from a man who can read minds.
