A scandalous liaison. A killer on the loose. Can a young woman save her sibling from going down for murder?
Vancouver, Canada. Software engineer Indira Saraf refuses to march to her traditionalist parents’ old-world drum. Resentful of her brother’s golden-boy acceptance but still a devoted sister, she encourages him to confess his secret affair before he ends up married to a woman he doesn’t want. So she’s horrified when his student and lover is slain and he’s arrested for the gruesome crime.
Repurposing her own AI technology to prove his innocence, the unorthodox rebel scours the dead college girl's life for clues. But when Indira discovers another missing co-ed and the suspects pile up, she learns the hard way that her digging has drawn deadly attention…
Can she hunt down the culprit before she takes a fatal fall?

😱😱😱 This was such a great book!!! I was absolutely hooked right the start. Let me begin by telling you that I am a longtime fan of this author and I was so excited to see a new book come out. I am very glad and not at all surprised that I was not disappointed.
This story was INTERESTING! I found all the techy stuff fascinating. This is not my world at all LOL. I am not a techy person. I know how to use a computer and I know my way around my iPhone, but that's about it. And yet, I was so drawn in by all the computer tracking info in here and how it was used to solve the crime!! Some very interesting and scary stuff.
The characters... Loved! I loved Indira. She was such a great female superhero. Yes, superhero. She would not give up. She believed in her brother's innocence and did everything to prove it. Even getting herself in trouble. I loved this about her. There were also a lot of equally great minor characters, but she was my favorite. Bonus... a little touch of romance, just a touch - perfect!
This book was so intense and suspenseful. I DID NOT WANT TO STOP READING! I only stopped when I had to - such as fixing dinner. UGH! I should have just ordered takeout.
I very highly recommend this book, and pretty much anything Chris Patchell writes!
