The Silk Road, for those of you not familiar, is kinda like the black market version of eBay. It was closed recently, and a man arrested over its operation. The evidence against him looks fairly substantial, to the point where his only real chance of escape is getting off on a technicality.
There’s got to be a novel in here somewhere. At the very least, if you ever need to know how to write a shady underground hacker-type character illegally fleeing cross-border, this is not the worst place to start.
