Book Review: “Social Engineer” by Ian Sutherland

Book Review: “Social Engineer” by Ian Sutherland

How safe is your intellectual property? Maybe not as a safe as it should be. Brody Taylor is a hacker and social engineer, and he’s the go-to guy if your security needs to be tested. Brody is currently investigating at a pharma company that is on the verge of a breakthrough in Alzheimer’s treatment. He also recently met Melanie, an animal rights activist. Will his investigation interfere with his relationship? Can a man who makes a living telling lies even have a relationship?

This is the first story in the Brody Taylor series which draws the reader into the world of cyber-security. This is a short story, at about 60 pages, so there is not a lot of character development but what I saw of Brody made him a very likeable character. I think there is a lot to be explored in this genre and I look forward to reading more in this series. I think readers who enjoy cyber stories and those who enjoy mysteries can all find something to like in this series. The internet is here to stay and what better way to enjoy it than in the pages of a good book.

  1. Hi Jennifer, thanks for the official Thumbs-Up and for the balanced review. Social Engineer is very much a short prequel to the series and things get much more complicated in the first full length novel, Invasion of Privacy. Also, its sequel, called Taking Up Serpents, is out in October. There’s plenty more of Brody to come!
