- In stock
We live our lives online - banking, shopping, working, dating - but have we become complacent?
Who's got your money?
We share our personal details, our thoughts and movements with a faceless screen, with no real idea what lies behind it.
Who's got your identity?
DarkMarket exposes the shocking truth about what lurks behind our computers: an underground crime network that invades our privacy and threatens our security on a daily basis.
Who's got your life?
Glenny tracks down the key players - including criminals, national and international security experts, police, crack addicts, the Saudi Royal Family, and most importantly, victims - to reveal the true scale of this new global threat.
