Killer Bytes by Alan Williams

Genre: Thriller/Suspense
Buy the book: Amazon
Source: I received an ecopy from the author
A killer is stalking London; a banker is already dead, killed in an explosion, and there are more victims in the killer’s sights.
Techno geek and Internet journalist, Wil Jackson becomes inadvertently embroiled in the investigation when he interviews one of the murder victims, and the killer starts communicating with Wil via the Internet. Can Wil help the police stop the killer before the body count increases further?

This is a debut novella and yes here and there you can tell, but I do think Alan Williams is on the right track here. The story starts of with a prologue which immidiately draws you in and from then on you will read this novella without putting it down.  This story is fast paced and the writing style makes it easy to read. 

I liked Wil, he is not your typical hero. He is a tech blogger and a self proclaimed geek, I mean who would figure a guy like that would help solving a crime and catching a killer. But he is very likeable even though he does not make the best of choices all the time. 
The one thing that just did not work for me were the killings. They were just to random you know first someone gets blown up, than someone gets drowned. The plot to why these people were murdered worked out great, but the murders themself just did not at up.

This is a quick and very enjoyable read. And I am looking forward to reading more from Alan Williams and I really hope those stories will be about Wil.

My Rating: 3/5
