Three days for Nya Thales to turn up dead somewhere around the San Francisco Bay, if disgraced ex-cop Clarke Lantham can't find her first.
72 hours. The cops only look for missing adults after 72 hours.
Three days for Nya Thales to turn up dead somewhere around the San Francisco Bay, if disgraced ex-cop Clarke Lantham can’t find her first.
Following a scant few traces from her past, Lantham dives headlong into a dark hole filled with biotech labs, activists, kink clubs, cyberpunks, and mercenaries.
But from the moment he sets foot in Nya’s world, Lantham’s race against time turns into a run for his life. Blocked at all corners, framed for murder, and stalked by a shadowy figure willing to kill to keep Lantham from finding out who kidnapped Nya Thales, and why.
“J. Daniel Sawyer gives us a PI for the new millennium, and a mystery so dark and complex you could lose a molar biting into it.”
– Seth Harwood, author of In Broad Daylight
“…witty and pithy, with a storyline that keeps you engaged, this is a recommended read…one of the top reads of 2010…”
– MotherLode Book Reviews
“Sawyer has completely nailed it with this updated look at the hard-boiled detective genre. This is what Philip Marlowe would have been, if he were a computer hacker on the side and there was an open BDSM scene back then. It was a fun romp through the extended San Francisco Bay Area, hitting cities and landmarks that I grew up with, setting up characters and stories that will extend well beyond the current Bad Guy Of The Week(tm). I’m looking forward to reading the next books. This will be fun. :-
