    DescriptionWe live our lives online - banking, shopping, working, dating - but have we become complacent? Who's got your money? We share our personal details, our thoughts and movements with a faceless screen, with no real idea what lies behind it. Who's got your identity? DarkMarket exposes the shocking truth about what lurks behind our computers: an underground crime network that invades our privacy and threatens our security on a daily basis. Who's got your life? Glenny tracks down the key players - including criminals, national and international security experts, police, crack addicts, the Saudi Royal Family, and most importantly, victims - to reveal the true scale of this new global threat. Shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2012
