Diana Highsmith has
not left her house for about a year, for all practical purposes,
ever since her fiancé was killed in a tragic climbing accident.
Since Diana is a computer security expert and can work from home
that hasn’t been a major problem.
Once an expert hacker, Diana now protects her clients from the types
of intrusions she was so good at. Unfortunately, another personal
problem is about to force the reclusive “geek” to rejoin
the real world. Her sister has gone missing and now the woman, who
has created an avatar (Nadia) to function in OtherWorld, is going
to have to come out from behind her mask.
The dangers she faces
as she uncovers a web of deceit and betrayal both online and in
real life, will challenge Diana like no problem she has ever faced
protecting her clients.
The winner of the David
Award for Best Mystery of 2010, Hallie Ephron is a new novelist
who shows much promise. She set the bar for herself high with “Never
Tell A Lie”, but this psychological suspense story easily
clears the hurdle.
