The Key Holders Are Real!

“Another exciting thriller from Scott Hilsen that I could not put down.  Could the Internet itself actually be hijacked?  This fast-paced novel answers that question.   I have enjoyed Scott’s work because of the cutting-edge issues presented and how law enforcement responds.  I highly recommend!”  — Former FBI Special Agent and Chief Division Counsel


A Collision of Privacy & National  Security!

Based on a Thrilling True Story!

“From the first chapter to the last, I couldn’t put it down. This book had so much … murder, intrigue, fraud, mystery – and the Russian mafia. I found myself holding my breath and looking over my shoulder as the main characters walked into dangerous situation after dangerous situation."  — Frances McFate, Author of The Demon Plague
