Netwars: The Code. A Cross Platform Project.

About the Book

Welcome to the Deep Web: those parts of the internet no search engine explores. It's the place where you can buy anything -- drugs, children, weapons. Anyone can do it -- and get away free. Anthony Prince, head of PrinceSec, a firm which provides high-tech security for the government and major corporations, dies in a plane crash when crossing the English Channel. Responsible for Prince's death is a hacker named Strider. His real name is Scott Mitchell and in his day job at the National Cyber Crime Unit he uses legitimate means to get the bad guys. As Strider, his means are less legal. On the same night, PrinceSec is the target of a cyber-attack. When the NCCU is called to assess the damage, a link is found between Prince and a criminal hacker group called Black Flag. The race is on for Mitchell to protect his identity as Strider and to stop Black Flag before it's too late.


Netwars - CoverNetwars is a unique global cross-platform project created by leading German publisher Bastei Entertainment, following a group of hackers dealing with the impending threat of digital warfare between cyber terrorists and governments.

Published as six eBooks, the netwars project will also include three graphic novel apps and an interactive web documentary, with award-winning actor Nikolai Kinski (Aeon Flux, The Sinking of the Laconia, Yves St Laurent) playing the connecting character across all platforms. Each project can be followed as a standalone or as complementary to the other projects.
