There are no women on the Internet—it is one of the cardinal rules of hacking, and not since Lisbeth Salander famously violated it in Stieg Larsson’s Millenium series has the maxim been so compellingly broken as in The Last Hack, the new Jack Parlabane thriller from one of the smartest minds in crime fiction, Christopher Brookmyre.

Sam Morpeth has had to grow up way too fast. Left to fend for a younger sister with learning difficulties when their mother goes to prison, she is forced to watch her dreams of university evaporate. But Sam learns what it is to be truly powerless when a stranger begins to blackmail her online. Meanwhile, reporter Jack Parlabane seems to have finally gotten his career back on track with a job at a flashy online news start-up, but his success has left him indebted to a volatile source on the wrong side of the law. Now that debt is being called in, and it could cost him everything. Thrown together by a common enemy, Sam and Jack are about to discover they have more in common than they realize—and might be each other’s only hope.

Review Quotes

“Narrators King and Jay create a host of distinguishing character voices to turn Brookmyre’s taut thriller into compulsive and thrilling listening…With a bevy of English, Scottish, and American accents, the narrators prove delightfully agile…An excellent experience for thriller readers uncertain of whether to try audio and a delight for those who already know how wonderful this genre can be on audio.”

Booklist (starred audio review)

The Last Hack is vintage Brookmyre—equal parts adrenaline and empathy, a plot that opens out like a Japanese flower dropped in hot water, and characters so real you want to reach through the page and save them.”

Diana Gabaldon, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Tremendous fun, with superb characterization, gripping moral complexity, and no shortage of clever villainy.”

Chris Pavone, New York Times bestselling author

“A deadly race against the clock. Jack and Sam learn to trust each other, mostly, but numerous plot twists surprise them and the reader. Sam is a fully developed character in a tech world that Jack and the reader now truly appreciate.”

Library Journal

“A revelation…The computer is the scariest tool since the invention of the buzzsaw.”

Thomas Perry, New York Times bestselling author

“Brookmyre has produced another compelling thriller, and Sam is a delightfully complex and engaging character.”


“Works exceptionally well as cybercrime fiction, but it’s the human element that makes it tick.”
