However, when his past resurfaces, Alex will need to be at the top of his game in order to uncover the shadowy plans of the techno-terrorist organisation Black Binary, their leader and ex-mentor Roman Caster
Follow Alex as he races against the clock to uncover their plans and prevent them from coming to pass.
Before it’s too late.
The last time I read the work of A.J. Trevors I used the word potential and I think this short story shows how well his work is progressing. Yes it’s a short story but the plot felt tighter.
Alexander Hastings is a hacker but he’s not always been on the side of good. In this tale he’s ask to help the police by looking into his ex-mentor.
There’s a really good twist in this story and I really enjoyed the technical side of the tale since these days anything can be controlled/hacked with enough knowledge and time.
This is a good short tale, detailed enough for s short and fun with it and the bang at the ending worked perfectly.
If you want something quick to read then give it a go.
My thanks go to the author for the chance to read/review their work
