PUBLISHERS BLURB 

You could say it started with vanity. We believed we were special. But the truth is we were simply vulnerable.

One of them is lying. One of them is guilty. No one is safe.

Months after landing their dream job, five brilliant young minds are sent on a remote retreat. But when one of them disappears, they’re forced to question why they were brought here in the first place, and how far they’d go to get what they want.

And for the first time in their lives, they realise too much knowledge can be deadly.

This is the chilling story of what happens when the idealism of youth turns toxic. Can it ever be justified to do bad things for the greater good?

MY REVIEW 

When Libby sees a poster, advertising ‘Can you crack the code’, her and boyfriend Joe get started, eventually they manage….Will they get a job now?

Libby’s Uncle has told her his business is struggling, so feeling a little responsible, she really needs a job. So when Freetech offer her and Joe a position they jump at the chance…..

They find themselves, using social engineering to gain security information from various sources…..Kyle, the boss confirms the companies are their clients and the intent is to highlight the holes in security …so all above board !

The gang of 5, Libby, Joe, Tess, Will and Asha are then invited to a corporate team building stay, a luxury break…all expenses paid…so off they go, but what is Tess up to? Who is the mysterious Tomaz?….

So when one of them goes missing, they come to realise a little knowledge is a dangerous thing…and their naive, idealistic world comes to a rude awakening…

A contemporary and relevant thriller with its marvellous twists, incredible and well plotted by Colette McBeth…..I can thoroughly recommend it….
