Coding Isis
David Roys

Technology to die for…

The most significant improvement to mankind since the invention of the internet, Chris Sanders knows his research will change the world and make him a very rich man.

When Chris’s beautiful research assistant is murdered, evidence suggests she and Chris were having an affair and he becomes the prime suspect. Accused of adultery and murder, Chris must turn to his wife for help in proving his innocence, but should she trust him? Will she help?

Detective Ben Naylor from Washington DC’s Metro PD finds the evidence against Chris is unequivocal. Either Chris Sanders is a calculating, cold-blooded killer, or he is the unluckiest son-of-a-bitch alive.

Can Chris win the fight to prove his innocence? Can he win the battle for his life?

Coding Isis is a fast-paced techno-thriller that brings a new breed of hero to the genre.

Coding Isis book cover

This was an irritating book. The mythological Isis seems hardly applicable and of course the Islamic State has captured the term in modern usage. Horus, another project code name, was a clever connection but no more than that. Some of the writing irritated me as well, the protencious Britishness of the lead, for instance with much being made of his heritage but none of impacting on any of the events. I found the story unimaginative, the technology portrayed underused and underexploited, the ending was obvious and I think Roys needs considerably more polish.
