Investigative journalist, author and broadcaster Geoff White is among the UK’s leading technology specialists, working for the BBC, Channel 4 News, The Sunday Times and many more. In a career spanning 20 years he has covered election hacking, the dark web, the personal data trade and the emergence of cybercrime as one of the primal threats to modern society.

His first book, Crime Dot Com, was published in August 2020 by Reaktion Books. One of the key chapters was adapted by the BBC World Service into the hit 10-part podcast series The Lazarus Heist, created and co-hosted by Geoff, which immediately ranked number one in the UK Apple chart and within the top 7 in the US.

If this title is as good as the 2021 BBC podcast, it will be a gripping and informative read.
