Relentlessly suspenseful and disturbingly timely, Bounty summons a chilling vision of our Internet culture gone mad, where freedom, privacy, and the rule of law are demolished by a crisis of nightmare proportions - and the future of justice lies in the hands not of the bravest but the most brutal. 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.Advance praise for Bounty: “[Michael] Byrnes fuses science fiction and espionage in this smart, near-futuristic dystopic thriller.... The action-packed story line is full of plot twists and explores such topical matters as cyberterrorism and ha 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Bramhall.

I've always found it ridiculous that millions upon millions of individuals earn a living online, yet nobody thought about writing a book which teaches those people how to manage their money properly. Therefore, I've decided to roll up my sleeves and write one myself. Why? Simply because I also earn a living on the Internet and have been doing it since, well, since pretty much forever. Aside from that, I'm an economist and this unique (or feel free to call it weird) combination of street smarts and book smarts puts me in a reasonably good position to help people enhance the wealth they've generated online. If you earn a living online in one way or another (as a freelancer, as an online entrepreneur, as an indie author, as a domain investor, as a bitcoin early adopter, as an online trader, as a website flipper, as an online marketer and so on) or at least generate a significant percentage of your revenue online and want to find out how to manage your money wisely, this book is just what the doctor ordered. Throughout my career, I've been involved in a lot of different dimensions of the online world. I've been a freelancer. I've run an outsourcing business. I've invested in domains, offered domain brokerage services and even started an auction platform for domain names. I've started an escrow business, which has been sold to Agreed.com, which was then sold to Escrow.com and which was ultimately sold to Freelancer.com. I even owned three Web hosting businesses. All in all, it's fairly safe to say I've seen the Internet under the hood, so to speak. Frankly, I'd say finding someone who understands those who make money on the Internet better than yours truly would be quite a challenge. No matter what it is you currently do online, chances are I've at least dabbled in it. Those who make money online are a special breed with highly specific wealth management needs and Wealth Management 2.0 finally fills this personal finance void, as I h 1. Language: English.
