- About the Book
From a top international crime writer, The Last Hack is "an extraordinary suspense novel" (Washington Post) about an old-school journalist facing down obsolescence, the most memorable teenage hacker since Lisbeth Salander, and a heist that will take this unlikely pair to the most treacherous corners of the Internet. Sam Morpeth has had to grow up way too fast. Left to fend for a younger sister when their mother goes to prison, she is forced to watch her dreams of university evaporate. But Sam learns what it is to be truly powerless when a stranger begins to blackmail her online. Meanwhile, reporter Jack Parlabane seems to have finally gotten his career back on track with a job at a flashy online news start-up, but his success has left him indebted to a volatile source on the wrong side of the law. Now that debt is being called in, and it could cost him everything. Thrown to-gether by a shared enemy, Sam and Jack are about to discover they have more in common than they realize--and might be each other's only hope.
