"Following a team of FBI agents striving to counter an untraceable web site and the elusive forces behind it, and tracking the real perils of cyber-saturation across the globe, this all-too-plausible topical thriller explores what happens when pervasive corruption, widespread public unrest, and the shattering of any last illusions of privacy clash in a perfect storm outside the rule of law"--Provided by publisher.
When a website begins putting lucrative bounties on the heads of global criminals who have evaded justice--including Wall Street power brokers, politicians, and unethical businesspeople--a group of elite U.S. government operatives, led by FBI special agent Roman Novak, seeks to shut down the site. But its creators remain elusive as the body count rises, and many people start to embrace the site's simple credo: "If the law should fail, let justice prevail". Novak and the government's most talented cryptanalysts struggle to find a way to bring down the site before it irrevocably changes the world. --

When the criminal justice system breaks down allowing bribing billionaires and politicians to loot and rape the lives of common citizenry, when child abusers and rapists walk free on technicalities and fancy lawyering, vigilante justice becomes almost inevitable. Byrnes book lays it out step by step in these modern times without applauding it, but recognizing that it would have to be a lot worse than just the current cops shooting unarmed citizens and walking free. Worth the read.
