CODING ISIS by David Roys

A debut technological thriller from a new Christchurch-based author.

Technology to die for...

The most significant improvement to mankind since the invention of the internet, Chris Sanders knows his research will change the world and make him a very rich man.

When Chris’s beautiful research assistant is murdered, evidence suggests she and Chris were having an affair and he becomes the prime suspect. Accused of adultery and murder, Chris must turn to his wife for help in proving his innocence, but should she trust him? Will she help?

Detective Ben Naylor from Washington DC’s Metro PD finds the evidence against Chris is unequivocal. Either Chris Sanders is a calculating, cold-blooded killer, or he is the unluckiest son-of-a-bitch alive.

Can Chris win the fight to prove his innocence? Can he win the battle for his life?

Coding Isis is a fast-paced techno-thriller that brings a new breed of hero to the genre.

Available on Amazon Kindle for $2.99 and in paperback from Amazon for US$9.95.

David Roys was born in Scunthorpe, England, but now lives in Christchurch, New Zealand with his wife and two daughters. CODING ISIS was written in Christchurch between 2009 and 2011 when there were over 9,000 earthquakes, the largest of which was a magnitude 7.1. Roys has an honours degree in computer science and has worked in computer programming and IT consulting, and has previously co-authored a non-fiction book on the implementation of financial systems.
