I picked up Hacking Timbuktu by Stephen Davis because it looked like a ride. I kept reading because it was.Ancient treasure , hacking and something that was new to me, parkour. ( I’d call it urban survival street running but you can see more here and here).
The Story: Long ago a lot of gold was stolen by a very clever thief, who left a clue that no one had been able to follow. Move forward to now : and a map/clue is found when ancient manuscripts are being scanned for preservation . Danny Temple , a white hat hacker , gets a copy of the clue. Unfortunately, a lot of people want the treasure, and they figure out that he has the map. Find the treasure first seems the best way to stay safe – and who can resist the call of a stack of gold bars?
