Dark Web Rising: Elastic Society Theory Part 1 by Eugene T Schurter is a captivating and fascinating sci-fi thriller with a futuristic feel. With cyber world espionage as the theme, the author reaches out to the current generation and introduces them to Stewart, who is tired from his work with JM Net - a group of people with a fascination with John Marshal’s Elastic Society Theory. They have made the Egg so that they can have a safe place to discuss Marshal’s work and find innovative ways to promote the philosophy and have fun. The recent hack has made him angry and irritated and he realizes the hack was done by the Central Security Agency. Things change when Stewart hacks into the CID and from there the plot takes readers into a world of espionage, hacking, and science fiction that will keep them glued to the pages.

The plot is fast paced and there is a lot of action, intrigue, and thrills as the story progresses. Whether it is the Genesis II or Daddy Warbucks, the person, the story has a sense of urgency as there are interesting twists and turns, and characters are busy with the hacks and trying to avoid agents chasing them. All the characters are well sketched and come across as real and tangible. It is a definitely a book for all those who love computers and coding, and the author handles a relevant topic well, making it entertaining for readers. The conclusion sets the tone perfectly for book 2 and readers will be eagerly waiting to read more from this author.
