Start your review of Darknet. Very cool. Jake had worked his way up from some very tough and humble beginnings so he had some skills from the school of hard knocks to fall back on, but Mather puts him through the wringer.
Essential Very cool. Essentially, Mather has set up a very sophisticated scenario where global financial markets are being taken over by nefarious and unlikely agents. Jake and friends try to stay alive long enough to turn things around for us all. Mather has also described an online assassins website where people can put down hits on others and there are contractors lined up to take the appointments.
Plenty of action and lots to think about, Matthew Mather has served up a winner. I can see this being made into a film. View all 5 comments. What can I say? My hackles were up from chapter one. Highly recommended. Well done and Kudos, Matthew!
I look forward to reading more of your work sir. View 1 comment. Oct 22, L. This book started off okay. The writing was a bit immature, but the plot seemed interesting. Character development was weak, but it was there. But by the end of the book I was angry for having wasted my time on it. Especially the so-called climax and denouement. It was thin, barely there. A real disappointment and completely unbelievable. The ruthless, unstoppable worldwide computer system and crooked politicians, and mobsters it partnered with, went from being unstoppable to folding like a deck This book started off okay.
The ruthless, unstoppable worldwide computer system and crooked politicians, and mobsters it partnered with, went from being unstoppable to folding like a deck of cards right at the end. Not because it made sense, but because it was time to end the book.
Ruthlessness suddenly turned to cowardice for no apparent reason. Unstoppable forces were suddenly easily stopped. Again, the sudden change had no apparent reason. I was actually angry for the lack of effort on the part of the author. Also, I find all the breathless reviews about the AI involved unbelievable. The presentation of AI in the book is childish and oversimplified, as are the corresponding reviews that rave about how impactful that part of the story is. If you think this story informs society in any way about AI, please allow me to set your straight.
It does not present any kind of coherent or meaningful assessment of AI and whether, or how, it might be an asset or threat to our future. It uses AI as a hugely simplified boogeyman -- a stereotypical plot device. After reading this book you will have no real understanding of what AI is, what it can do, and whether it is going to be our redemption or destruction. What if this.. Sound and fury signifying nothing. What a disappointment. The beginning held the promise of a good thriller.
The shift to focusing on AI ruined the plot because there was no real understanding of AI in the writing. And the resolution was a huge disappointment -- a deus ex machina of the worst kind. In short, the book was a waste of time. NOT recommended. Excellent story about artificial intelligence. Autonomous corporations, in this book name of the company is Blueridge.
Automated trading algorithms for major banks, cryptocurrencies, computers impersonating humans. Excellent book, showing us what could happen in the near future. Darknet by Matthew Mather is another fast-paced thriller similar to CyberStorm.
Not that this is a sequel, Darknet is a new standalone novel entirely but similar in that it is well-written, action-packed, and as another review stated, techno-terror. So how did a guy like this end up working as a Wall Street trader? Donovan admits he has had some shady dealing but nothing like the crimes of which he is accused.
Right before Donovan is taken out in handcuffs, he states to Jake that Bluebridge is framing him. At home, Jake receives a mysterious voice mail from his friend Sean Womack in London. Sean states that he has something he needs to tell Jake but the message is never completed. Jake soon learns that Sean was killed. What was he trying to tell Jake? So, dear reader of this review, are you still with me? Matthew Mather is a rising author in the world of thrillers, suspense, science fiction and a lot of other genres that are hard to nail down with his writing.
I read CyberStorm and stated that author Mather is similar to Hugh Howey and Scott Sigler in his career as an author and I still stand by that statement. View all 3 comments.

An entertaining read that will have you contemplating the future of our global economy and financial markets. Definitely worth checking out. I had a hard time with this one. Parts were interesting and frightening, but overall it was an "ok" read. I picked up "Darknet" because I work in AI and automation and I wanted to see what someone who sees the darker possibilities of the technologies would imagine as our future.
Matthew Mather does a good job with the technology. The things he imagines are a "five minutes from now" version of the current technology used for bots, machine learning, pattern recognition, drones and cryptocurrency.
It was like watching someone else play a video game: great graphics and sound effects but zero emotional engagement. Mather can spin a far-out technology in his story, weaving advanced concepts into the plot that play like additional characters. One filled with bots, hidden market places and cybercurrencies. These technologies are real, but Mather pushes the limits and uses them to extremes.
He creates a fast paced cat and mouse story with technology playing the part of the cat. He exposes vulnerabilitie Wheeew! He exposes vulnerabilities we all face in our connected world with cyber-attacks, identify theft, and identity masquerading.
Mather always provide strong character definitions. It is a well-rounded and complete story. I look forward to what Mather does next. I though it was just kind of ok. But I felt like it was a little dumbed down, tbh. That said, I think it would make a great movie. Thoroughly Entertaining. This was such a clever and interesting book to read, and I was surprised at how quickly I read it. The characters are great and I certainly enjoyed the plot from start to finish.
That was until the day his boss Danny Donovan was clearly in trouble, and advised Jake that he was under investigation for fraud. This certainly surprised Jake, as he though Donovan was pretty much above board. It was almost like someone was cleaning house around the world in the finance industry, with the deaths and disappearances of some high profile people.
Now he will need to do everything he can to find a way of exposing what is really going on, and find out who is ultimately responsible. Mar 07, Benjamin Thomas rated it it was amazing. An absolutely thrilling book! No one writes a story quite like Matthew Mather does. Creepy, and all too realistic. The protagonist does a great job of making you care. Next page. He began his career at the McGill Center for Intelligent Machines, then started several high-tech ventures in everything from computational nanotechnology to electronic health records, weather prediction systems to genomics, and even designed an award-winning brain-training video game.

Verified Purchase. This thriller is, "like, ripped from the headlines, dude! As a matter of fact, Mr. Mather points out that, just as his book was published, a huge hedge fund announced that they are putting resources into AI, so this could be happening soon.
Mather also makes a very valid point - very few Sci-Fi authors try to make a personality for an AI that is not human. Think, the computer in "War Games" - wants to have a nice cup of tea? Mather makes a valiant effort to create an AI personality that derives from its original overriding directive, and nothing else. My only criticisms of the book are that some of the French Canadian characters are a little cartoon-like, and the ending wraps it all up more easily than it probably can be done in real-life.
One person found this helpful. This book offers a look into the development of artificial intelligence, as well as assassinations ordered online and paid for with cryptocurrency. The characters were well-developed and it was interesting to learn about the friendships that bound them all together. This gripping novel kept me up late. It is always a joy to come across stories that are within the realm of the possible Just how feasible and how nefarious things could get Speculation is star gazing - or close enough.
Still, he is generating masterfully entertaining fiction. Thoroughly enjoyed this book Of course, the Canadian aspects added much to my enjoyment. Well done!! I really enjoyed this book. The action was well paced and the plot thought-provoking.
This is a scary vision of what we may face in the near future. A great read! ArtIficial intelligence taken to the next level. Wow this book was super entertaining! Well written, flows really well and the story really sucked me in. Highly recommended. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries.
This reads well as an interesting and fun technothriller. He looks into the matter and ends up investigating Bluebridge, a vast corporation that buys and sells futures - gambling on the prices of shares and commodities. At present the majority of market trades are being made by complex algorithms in fast computers so Bluebridge is headquartered near Wall Street for fast broadband trades.
Oddly for such a big company, Bluebridge has been laying off staff, and senior people have been dying. Who is actually running it, and how come the few seniors left are making appearances at meetings in different parts of the country on the same day? But as Jake investigates he runs into trouble, of the kind that comes with estrangement from his wife and kidnap of their young daughter. I enjoyed the location switches which include Hong Kong and Canada, with a Mohawk Reservation featuring strongly.
The enterprising Mohawks are hosting casino web gambling on their giant servers.
