From Karl Schroeder, author of Lockstep, comes the near-future, science fiction, hacker’s heist novel Stealing Worlds.
In the not-too-distant future, the global economy has completed the move from dollars to bitcoin, and the US is in permanent recession.
Sura steals for fun, and to keep body and soul together. When she was eighteen, Sura and her boyfriend stole $140 million by hacking a bitcoin server, and stashed the money online under a heavily encrypted address.
They know how to get at it but can’t without exposing their identities to the very dangerous people they stole from.
Now, ten years later, impoverished and frustrated, Sura sets out to retrieve her share.
