Publisher's Summary

Gifted troubleshooter John Smith, introduced in the acclaimed thriller Killfile, must take down a shadowy figure who has weaponized the Internet, using social media to put a price on the heads of his targets in this intense, unstoppable thriller from the author reviewers have compared to Michael Crichton, Brad Thor, and James Rollins.
As a fixer for America's 1 percent, John Smith cleans up the messes of those rich enough to afford him. But he's no ordinary gun for hire. Smith is a man of rare gifts, including the ability to read minds. Arriving at the wedding of Kira Sadeghi, a reality television celebrity he recently saved from kidnappers, Smith witnesses a group of gunmen open fire, hitting the bride and others. Though he's unarmed, Smith cripples one of the killers and is able to pry one word from his mind: "downvote".
Eager to learn more, Smith hacks into the brain of an FBI agent investigating the attack to discover the bureau has been investigating a nefarious new threat called Downvote, an encrypted site on the dark net that lists the names of celebrities and offers a hefty bounty for anyone who can kill them - unleashing an anonymous and deadly flashmob with a keystroke.
Finding a mastermind on the Internet is like trying to catch air - unless you're John Smith. Motivated by money and revenge, he traces a series of electronic signatures to a reclusive billionaire living at sea, accompanied by a scary-smart female bodyguard who becomes Smith's partner in his quest. The hunt for their prey will lead from Hong Kong to Reykjavik to a luxury gambling resort deep in the Laotian jungle. Yet always this criminal mastermind remains one step ahead.
The only way Downvote's creator can stop Smith is to kill him...because while this diabolical genius can run, there's no hiding from a man who can read minds.

The first Christopher Farnsworth book I listened to was killfile and I have been hooked ever since burning through every single one of his book on audible.
This is a great thriller! It really makes you think about the social media world at large, while providing butt kicking action.

Brilliant Book 2

As there are so many series out there, sometimes you remember liking a book, but when it's sequel comes out it takes you a while tom re-acclimate yourself with the world and remember why you liked the first book. Yet, with Flashmob, Farnsworth quickly throws you into the fray with a blast of dirty action, quickly reminding you that this is a take no hold barred world full of shady characters and a hero whose skill set is nothing like you expect when a character is labeled with the psychic tag.

Flashmob takes off with a sonic boom and keeps pushing to the edge and you never are quite sure when your going to fall off. It all leads to a climatic battle that defies expectation. It's not just a worthy sequel, but a sequel so good it makes me appreciate the originally even more. Add to this Bronson Pinchot's authentically human performance and you have one of the can't miss audiobook experiences of the year.
