Whose side is he on?

Brody Taylor loves hacking humans. After all, people are the weakest link in all computer systems. If he's hired to break into your network, he will find and exploit the weak point. You.

The problem with always manipulating people is that even those closest to you don't trust you.

And Brody's just fallen in love with Melanie, a zany, beautiful French animal rights activist. But she's in love with the character he's trapped himself in, not the real Brody, social engineer and computer hacker. Can Brody social engineer his way to the truth and save his relationship with Melanie?

A novella that introduces Brody Taylor in a thrilling standalone adventure. At 60 pages, SOCIAL ENGINEER can be read in under two hours!

From the Author:

Hi thriller fans!

The chilling premise behind Invasion of Privacy came first, long before the character of Brody Taylor. I'd tried various ways to tell the story in a dramatic and suspenseful way and only succeeded when the character of Brody popped into my head, fully formed and wonderfully flawed. As intricate and twisted as the plot is, it's Brody that makes the whole thing far more interesting and exciting. In our modern, technology dependent world he's incredibly powerful and because of this he's frequently confronted with the dilemmas: just because he can do something, should he? And, does the end always justify the means?

But the best part about Brody is that he's a character in a setting worthy of a whole series of books. There is a much darker side to the connected world into which we all blindly jump into each day. We hear about it in news all too frequently. Pitting Brody against these anonymous online criminals is too good an opportunity to pass up, especially when their digital crimes affect us in the ordinary world in which we all live. But to make a character like Brody work well, you need a counterpoint. And DI Jenny Price is perfect. She's the law-enforcing, real-world action hero to Brody's law-bending, tech-savvy anti-hero.

It seems that readers love Brody and Jenny too. The books have been downloaded tens of thousands of times by readers all around the world. The reviews are amazing and the books have both been #1 in their genres.

I hope you enjoy meeting Brody Taylor and Jenny Price. I'm always delighted to correspond with readers. You can find out more and contact me at ianhsutherland.com.

About the Author:

Ian Sutherland was brought up the Outer Hebrides, idyllic remote islands off the west coast of Scotland. In an effort to escape the monotonous miles of heather, bracken and wild sheep, Ian read avidly, dreaming of one day arriving in a big city like London. And then, at the tender age of 12 he was unexpectedly uprooted to Peckham, an inner city suburb of South-East London. Ian quickly discovered that the real London was a damn sight more gritty and violent than the version in his books and shown on tv. Undeterred, Ian did what he did best, and buried his head in books, dreaming of other places to escape to.

Roll forward some years, and Ian can still be found with his head in a book. Or, given that he enjoyed a successful career in the IT industry, an eBook Reader. And now, having travelled a fair bit of the globe in person and even more of it via the Internet, Ian lives with his wife and two daughters in a small idyllic village, surrounded by green fields, copses and the occasional sheep, yet located just outside of the London he finally came to love.

Here, he writes gritty, violent crime thrillers full of well-rounded characters, set in and around London. His stories also feature the online world that most of us jump into blindly each day, but Ian exposes its underbelly and dramatically illustrates how dangerous the internet can be for the unwary.
