The Lazarus Heist Summary

The Lazarus Heist: From Hollywood to High Finance: Inside North Korea's Global Cyber War by Geoff White

Based on the No 1 hit podcast 'The Lazarus Heist'

'You'll never see North Korea the same way again' Oliver Bullough, Sunday Times bestselling author of Moneyland

'One of the most incredible cyber-espionage stories I've ever heard, told by one of the UK's best tech journalists' Jamie Bartlett, author of The Missing Crypto Queen

'Madly intriguing' Guardian

Meet the Lazarus Group, a shadowy cabal of hackers accused of working on behalf of the North Korean state. It's claimed that they form one of the most dangerous criminal enterprises on the planet, having stolen more than $1bn in an international crime spree. Their targets allegedly include central banks, Hollywood film studios and even the British National Health Service. North Korea denies the allegations, saying the accusations are American attempts to tarnish its image.

In this staggering, global investigation, award-winning journalist Geoff White examines how the hackers have harnessed cutting-edge technology to launch a decade-long campaign of brazen and merciless raids on its richer, more powerful adversaries. It's not just money they're after. The Lazarus Group's tactics have been used to threaten democracies, gag North Korea's critics and destabilize global peace.

From the bustling streets of Dhaka, to the glamorous studios of Hollywood, to the glittering casinos of Macau and the secretive dynastic court of Pyongyang, this shocking story uncovers the secret world of the Lazarus Group, their victims and the people who have tried - and ultimately, so far failed - to stop them.

'Cyber warfare and criminal hacking has never been more pertinent. This a must read to understand the threats currently facing all of us globally' Annie Machon, author of Spies, Lies and Whistleblowers

The Lazarus Heist Reviews

Pacy and eye-popping, this book shows us what happens when the world of Barbara Demick's Nothing to Envy meets the world of Misha Glenny's McMafia. It is chilling to read how easily dictators blessed with talented hackers can now terrorise democracies * Tom Burgis, author of Kleptopia *
This is a mindbending investigation into how the so-called hermit kingdom hacks, cheats, steals and extorts money from the rest of us. You'll never see North Korea the same way again * Oliver Bullough, Sunday Times bestselling author of Moneyland and Butler to the World *

One of the most incredible cyber-espionage stories I've ever heard, told by one of the UK's best tech journalists

* Jamie Bartlett, author of The Missing Crypto Queen *
Cyber warfare and criminal hacking has never been more pertinent. This a must read to understand the threats currently facing all of us globally * Annie Machon, author of Spies, Lies and Whistleblowers *
Part detective story, part thriller, but scary since it is all true. White exposes North Korea as a pariah State where ruthless dictatorship joins forces with international cyber crime. A compelling account of a 21st century threat to us all * Sir David Omand, former head of GCHQ and author of How Spies Think *
