All over the world, random people are being brutally assassinated.

Each death is unique, but they all have one thing in common: four numbers branded or carved into the victims' flesh.

What does it mean?

For the brilliant and haunted CIA analyst Quinn Mitchell, it means leaving a safe and predictable desk job as she tries to track down a global serial killer.

What she doesn't know is that nothing about this mission - her handlers, the intelligence, even the laws of cause and effect - can be trusted.

And her target has saved his most shocking murder for last..

Scorpion is one of those books that you need to read with no distractions. It is a sci-fi thriller which is set in the near future with a lot of focus on technology and things like cryptocurrency. There is a lot of jargon which was clearly very well researched.

The story itself focuses mainly on three characters; Quinn, Ranveer and Henrietta. Bodies are piling up with the killer, or killers, branding each with a four digit code. There is seemingly no link to the victims and the CIA task Quinn Mitchell to try and work out the pattern and find out who is doing it.

It is a fantastic cat and mouse type chase with massive twists thrown in. I was on the edge of my seat for most of it and really enjoyed being in this world and following along for the ride. I really liked the depth that each character had which really made me understand them more before they came together for the main plot. It is clear that it was very well planned and well executed.
