Cyberstalking is a dangerous game.
A female Assassin, the Dark Web, Bitcoin, money laundering and the mysterious world of computer hacking all tied together by a lonely Pacific Island of which there is no trace on the internet. A story of ordinary people caught up in an extraordinary lifestyle of wealth, drugs and modern day assassinations – love is priceless and life is cheap.
Louisa Clayman is not your typical twenty-eight-year-old Londoner. She is the wealthy CEO of Clayman Security, a large international security provider that she runs with her two brothers.
She is also Crail, a paid assassin.
Advertising on the Dark Web and taking payment through Bitcoin, the siblings carry out emotionless high-profile assassinations. With skilled teamwork they cover their tracks flawlessly. They never ask questions. They make a fortune.
When Louisa meets Rikard, a celebrity Internet gamer, she unwittingly puts her identity and business as Crail on the line. What starts out as an innocent flirtatious connection soon develops into a steamy relationship, and Rikard goes with Louisa to Tikopia on holiday.
Although Rikard is charmed by Louisa, his best friend isn’t. Protective of Rikard but distrusting and suspicious of Louisa, Markus begins stalking her online to find out just who she really is. Louisa’s brother Jack who is a skilled hacker, retaliates and the result is worse than they could ever imagine. When he puts their secret island hideaway into cyber-lockdown, the drug fueled party lifestyle on Tikopia is lost to panic as their paranoia spirals out of control, triggering a chain of events that will change everything.
About the Author:
Rachel lives in the forest with her family on the outskirts of a small town in the Scottish Borders. She studied Science at University in New Zealand before moving to the UK in 1997 and in 2007 set up a medical distribution company with her husband. She began writing when she found herself driving long distances for work every week and started to make up stories to pass the time.
The idea for Tikopia began after scanning the pacific ocean on Google Earth and it was only a matter of time until characters and plot were added. The outline of the story was written in 2013 and then it was put aside and forgotten until 2017 when she met a friend who had successfully published his own thriller. Inspired to complete the project, she worked weekends and evenings to finish it.
She is now working on the 2nd book in the Crail Assassin series and also has a rough plan for the third book.
