Working for the Los Angeles-based clandestine organization, One Percent, John Smith cleans up the messes of those rich enough to afford him. But he?s no ordinary fixer. Smith is a man of rare gifts, including the ability to read minds. Arriving at the wedding of Kira Sadeghi, a reality television celebrity he recently saved from kidnappers, Smith witnesses a group of gunmen open fire, hitting the bride and others. Though he?s unarmed, Smith cripples one of the killers and is able to pry one word from his mind: ?Downvote.?
Eager to learn more, Smith hacks into the brain of an FBI agent investigating the attack to discover the Bureau has been investigating a nefarious new threat called ?Downvote,? an encrypted site on the ?dark net? that lists the names of celebrities and offers a hefty bounty for anyone who can kill them?unleashing an anonymous and deadly flashmob with a keystroke.
Finding a mastermind on the internet is like trying to catch air?unless you?re John Smith. Motivated by money and revenge, he traces a series of electronic signatures to a reclusive billionaire living at sea, accompanied by a scary-smart female bodyguard who becomes Smith?s partner in his quest. The hunt for their prey will lead from Hong Kong to Reykjavik to a luxury gambling resort deep in the Laotian jungle. Yet always this criminal mastermind remains one step ahead.
The only way Downvote?s creator can stop Smith is to kill him . . . because while this diabolical genius can run, there?s no hiding from a man who can read minds.
