Young, bright and sexy, Carla Vitale has been handpicked to run Supertech, Africa's leading independent Engineering firm. Then one Friday afternoon in Cape Town, her dream is shattered. Her boss and mentor, Nial Townley, disappears, his luxury vehicle is found in a crevice at the bottom of Chapman's Peak and $USD 20m is missing from the Supertech's overseas accounts. Three months later and the police are no closer to solving the riddle. No job, no car, no phone, Carla turns to the one person she believes can help: software hacker turned day-trader, Daniel Le Fleur. But Le Fleur's maintaining a low profile in Bantry Bay and he's in no mood to ruin the serendipity. After a successful career in Information Technology, Peter Church's first crime novel, Dark Video, was published in South Africa and Australia in 2008. He has since published Bitter Pill, a crime thriller, and Blue Cow Sky, "a novella of sexual proportions," both in South Africa. Church is a member of SA PEN. He lives in Cape Town with his wife, the artist Paula Church, and three children. Crackerjack is his debut in North America.

In Cape Town, South Africa, Daniel Le Fleur has just managed to avoid prison time for computer hacking and is trying to keep a low profile when he's approached by Carla Vitale, a young engineer who is searching for her missing boss, Nial Townsley. The search drives them both deep into the world of white-collar crime and the Dark Web as they seek to discover what happened to Nial and stay alive along the way. Action-packed, with great narration and compelling characters, this thriller a twisted, entertaining listen. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
