KILLER BYTES by Alan Williams
At the request of the author, the first half of a digital manuscript was provided, at no cost to me, for my honest opinion.

Synopsis: A killer is stalking London; a banker is already dead, killed in an explosion, and there are more victims in the killer’s sights.
Techno geek and Internet journalist, Wil Jackson becomes inadvertently embroiled in the investigation when he interviews one of the murder victims, and the killer starts communicating with Wil via the Interne

Now, in a total departure from my standard review style - I have a rant to get off my chest! Indy authors - LISTEN UP!! There seems to be some sort of trend out there and I've noticed it mostly with self-published authors. For some reason, there is a vital part of the book missing: the author's bio!! I don't know whether it is the inner stalker in me or if my mother was particularily good at instilling in me the need to know something about who I am taking to bed with me (or into the bath, or sh ...more

Ok, first things first, I know the author. In fact, I would probably describe myself as a friend of the author. Which means that anything I say next is going to be coloured with that brush. I did, however, pay cold hard cash for my copy of the book - a whole 99c (USD) - which is probably also necessary knowledge before you read my review. And, finally, I don't normally read police procedural books, but I picked this up because a friend had written it and it only cost 99c, so I couldn't see the h ...more

Wil Jackson is a tech blogger, self-confessed geek and generally mostly harmless. He is therefore somewhat surprised when the police turn up on his doorstep asking why his last interviewee - an investment banker - has been killed in an explosion. However, this proves to be just the first of a string of gruesome murders and when the killer starts sending taunting messages via the internet it falls to Wil to use all of his skills to find the connection between the apparently unrelated victims.

This is the second time this year I've had the pleasure of reading a book written by someone I actually know. I'm very impressed with this first effort, and even though I'm not a big fan of the crime genre, I found this to be a very enjoyable and fast-paced read. For me, the most interesting element was the character of the hero, a tech blogger whose office is a living ark. If the author gives this character, Wil Jackson, another story, I'd like to know more about his history.
