When a notorious Wall Street vulture is executed in his high-rise office by a sniper's bullet, it's the kill shot heard around the world. Welcome to Bounty4Justice.com, a rogue website for vigilante assassins, where outraged citizens bid up bounties on corporate crooks and corrupt elites. As the number of targets soars, amateur bounty hunters and professional hit men compete to exterminate the condemned, "proof of death" videos become Internet sensations, and the self-styled Robin Hood pulling the strings threatens to plunge the international community into anarchy.
Along with other law enforcement agencies across the globe, the FBI and its agents on the case - led by Roman Novak and Rosemary Michaels - are desperately seeking a way to outmaneuver and overpower an all but invisible adversary with millions of dollars at its disposal and the ability to cripple the most sophisticated attackers with a keystroke. Following a black-hat hacker extraordinaire down a rabbit hole of firewalls, encryption, and unbreakable codes leads Novak and Michaels into the virtual underworld of the darknet - a seemingly impenetrable haven for the illicit and illegal where Bounty4Justice's mastermind is almost certainly hiding. But just when the agents think they are close to breaching their quarry's digital fortress, they find themselves stalked by an army of cyber outlaws out for blood.

Court of public opinion is a killer option here
Wind up a computer system install the program's you want to put you in control of world wealth and pass judgement on the people that are perceived to have beat the system. Essentially create a vigilante society where no one is held liable for killing the villains off but instead you will be rewarded for eliminating the culprits . But you know the program is no better than the human that sets up the program, and there is always someone that can do the job better especially in a geek driven world.
This book plugs in a lot of "what if senireos." And it will crank up your brain

Daniel Suarez fans won't be disappointed. Well done!
What happens when Black Hat hackers implement crowd-funded bounties on bad guys - through a website that takes suggestions, threatens bad guys with cascades of text messages, solicits death votes and pays the assassin, but punishes any government that tries to shut it down?
Things get ugly real soon!
