Mash Up by
When a suspect dies on his watch, failure pushes Alaskan detective Qigiq to San Francisco–the land of magical technology–to regroup. His new fast-driving partner, Kandy Dreeson, calls at dawn: a beautiful avant-garde violinist is at the station freaking out about an Amazon box–and her missing roommate. Thus begins the hunt for a killer who leaves behind a torrent of body parts, videos of heinous crimes, and deadly explosions.
Qigiq and Kandy enter a world of cybercrime he doesn’t understand–but is determined to master. Dodging attempts on their lives with each new bit they decipher, they grow ever closer to a dangerous force that trades money for murder, and music for privacy. Closer with each Amazon delivery. Closer with each new victim.
Suspenseful and grisly with humor and seduction, Mash Up is a riveting read of intertwined action from the first sentence. High-speed chase suspenseful, exploding with power-struggle intrigue, and awash in Silicon Valley innovation; Mash Up captures the enchantment of the Internet Age, and the deadly power of a file copy.
