Fairbanks Detective Qigiq–one name, rhymes with cheek, means white hawk–failed. He saw a suspect die, and never identified the techno-wizard who burned Alaska. Grandfather of the knife taught there is but one option after falling in the snow: stand…take another step.
So Qigiq heads south to San Francisco. His new hard-fisted partner, Kandy Dreeson, calls at dawn: a hysterical violinist named Robina is at the station shrieking about an Amazon box and her missing roommate. He rubs his eyes, grabs a jacket, and slices through Golden Gate Bridge traffic on his motorcycle–knowing this is his next step.
A barrage of body parts, heavily manipulated crime videos posted anonymously, mysterious mini-explosions, and millions of disappearing music files plunge Qigiq headfirst into a digital world of cybercrime he doesn’t understand–but is determined to master. He and Kandy dodge cars and bullets with each bit they decipher, growing ever closer to dangerous forces that trade money for murder. Closer with each 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.
