SOCIETY IS DIVIDED. Silicon Valley has taken virtual sex to the extreme, encouraging men to act out their darkest and most violent sexual fantasies. Militant feminists and churches are bitterly opposed. Powerful corporations battle for market control. In the midst of a fierce protest campaign, a bomb goes off in San Francisco. TWELVE ARE DEAD. Daniel Madsen is one of a new breed of federal agents armed with a gun, a badge and a handheld lie detector. He’s a fast operator and his instructions are simple: find the bomber before he strikes again. A NIGHTMARE AWAITS. Madsen plunges headlong into a sleazy, unsettling world where reality and fantasy are indistinguishable, exploitation is business as usual and the web of corruption extends all the way to Washington ... only to discover the stakes are higher than he could ever imagine.

"Skinjob delivers. Bucket-loads of suspense and action zooming along to a spectacular, explosive finale. Bruce McCabe has got the recipe right first go" Daily Telegraph "Skinjob offers a horribly real tale of technopoly's perils ... a tight, entertaining yarn that foreshadows the data and sensor-driven world we will live in come the 2020s. Rating: 8.5/10" The Australian "If any read is better deserving of the title 'techno-thriller', I cannot think of it. If writing was cricket, this novel would be a century on debut! A terrific read" The Courier Mail "A blend of Clive Cussler and Michael Crichton. The storyline is compelling, the race to save the day frantic, the villains properly dark and the heroes tough yet troubled." Observer "A smart techno thriller set in a dark world of greed, corruption and sex" The Sun
