was first introduced in Waking Rose,
but even first-time readers will quickly jump on board this rollicking adventure
with the sword-wielding Alex O'Donnell and his nearly techno-phobic girlfriend,
Kateri Kovach, who yes, take on forty cyberthieves.
In this high-tech thriller, Alex returns from college to find that his dad, a
computer hacker and software programmer, has inadvertently discovered a mysterious
website which leads to sudden wealth. But at what cost?
hard-working Kateri Kovach is suspicious of all this high-tech hoopla and tries
desperately to keep the O`Donnell family running smoothly; mainly by cleaning
up after them. Her biggest worries are finding a job and figuring out how to break
up with Alex. Yet, she finds herself evermore immersed in the O'Donnell family
activities - playing video games with Alex and his younger brothers Sam and David,
caring for their mother suffering from MS, and battling a samurai security cat.
Mayhem, martial arts, and murder ensue even as Alex pursues marriage with Kateri
who wonders why she's letting herself be a part of the madness. But in the end,
it just might be the anti-technological Kateri who saves the day...
You may not sleep, eat, or function normally until you have read this book as
fast as you can. Your thoughts will not be your own, as you try to figure out
what could possibly be happening next, and your conversations will be interrupted
by your glances down to continue reading.”
