The Insider

Book Review   by:readbyiona     Original Author: Ava McCarthy
ª
 

This book is set in Dublin city and the story revolves  around a 29 year old girl named Harry. Her father has been in jail for nearly 6 years for insider trading. Harry loves her father and has never really forgiven him for ending up in jail and to this day has yet to visit him.  While Harry is heading to the train station after a meeting she nearly looses her life when someone purposely pushes her in front of a speeding train. Harry being a smart lady lays low and lets the train rush over her head and then when she gets a chance manages to escape to safety, but not without a lot of bruises along the way. She is rescued by her boss, hero and soon to be boyfriend Dillon Fitzroy.

Harry doesn't realise it yet but she is been set up as a fall guy for the crime her father committed 6 years previously. This isn't the end of the accidents for Harry, when she arrives at Dillons house in the country, they are wandering around his maze as you do on a date, and some body rushes up behind and starts chasing her through the maze and of course Dillion has gone on ahead of her. Typical. So Harry has only herself to depend on for protection. Things get more messier when she sees her bank accounts and realises she has a balance of a few million in her account.

 

When she meets Jude at one of the businesses who's security she was sent to check out, she finds a friend who knows her father and goes out of his way to help as much as possible. But soon things get dicey. Jude manages to help her crack into the company he works for as Harry has a suspicion one of the mangaer's is involved in the crime her father was sent to jail for. What she does find is correspondence between the suspect and a man named "The Prophet". So since she figures out this is one of the people trying to kill her, she emails him and tells him she has his money. However things aren't what they seem, the money Harry finds out later was never in her bank accounts. It was all an illusion.  So now Harry has landed herself in more trouble than she thinks. Also the person behind it named "The Prophet" seems to think Harry knows where the 12 million punt now 16 million euro is and wants it returned to him as soon as possible.



This book is a very intriguing and was a very interesting thriller. You are introduced to the whole background of hacking, you encounter the termology they use and the tips hackers use to break into systems. The character Harry in this book has issues, but seriously who wouldn't after living her life. But the biggest thing you end up focusing on is that sometimes at the end of the day, you really only have yourself to rely on. But there is a lot of smokescreens hidden in this book. You wonder do you ever really know who your friends are? Poor Harry gets the biggest shock of her life when a friend betrays her and even I didn't see it coming and it was really a big shocker. I recommend everybody to read this book. It's the first in the series and I've read the second one. The third book in the series is coming out in October this year.
