When Judy tries to retaliate against a spammer, she has no idea her actions will arouse the fury of a ruthless Russian billionaire.
Judy's attempts to block incessant spam from her website guestbook come to an immediate halt when she uncovers a dangerous secret about the spammer's activities. But it's too late - she's left a digital trail that anyone with the expertise can follow all the way to her cosy, semi-detached home.
The resulting violence from the Belarusian spammers, Vadim and Sacha, is beyond anything she could have imagined. Yet this pales to insignificance when compared to the revenge of the man they're ripping off, Sacha's billionaire Russian boss, Alexi Bukolov.
Judy becomes unwittingly entangled in the spammers' swindle, making her a target for Bukolov's vicious and far-reaching retribution. Her life is in imminent danger, but even more distressingly, so is that of her teenage daughter, Nicole.
