Product Description:

Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2017

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 one 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.



If you think social media is causing the downfall of civilization as we know it today. Farnsworth’s latest superbly entertaining thriller will only confirm your worst fears. John Smith, a former CIA special ops agent turned private security consultant, thought he had retired from his job as a “fixer” for good. Using his ability to read minds – as well as influence them to a certain degree – had taken its own mental toll on John, which is why he retired to his own private island off the coast of Washington. However, when the reality TV star daughter of one of his old clients is badly injured during her wedding ceremony, John can’t help but become involved in the search for the assassins; a search which leads John to a mysterious website known as Downvote. Farnsworth introduced John Smith in Killfile, and his second outing is every bit as good as the debut novel.

Flashmob’s inventive plot is packed some wonderfully twisted plot turns and plenty of cinematic action scenes. And the scary thing is that the idea behind Downvote seems all to plausible today. The icing on the literary cake is Smith’s own dryly ironic voice which provides the sly narration for the story.
