From critically acclaimed bestselling crime writer Libby Fischer Hellmann comes a gripping techno-thriller, part of a multi-author series tied together by an interlocking cast of characters, all centered around the fantastic new promise of high technology and the endless possibilities for crime that technology offers, in a world where getting away with murder can be not only plausible, but easy… if you just know how.
Trawling through the lawless corners of the dark internet is the last thing respectable bank manager Rachel Foreman expected to be doing. But she’s just been fired after falling for a cyber-scam, resulting in the identity-theft and online targeting of a female Fortune 500 CEO, accused, among other things, of the murder of a disgruntled former employee. Lucky for Rachel, her mother is renowned investigator Ellie Foreman. In an effort to find out who’s targeting the CEO and to salvage what’s left of Rachel’s reputation, both mother and daughter trail shadowy hackers and ruthless cyber-criminals through an increasingly dangerous web of deception.
As you can tell from the description above, a major change is coming to the Ellie Foreman Mystery Series. Rachel, Ellie’s daughter, has decided to take over. There were several reasons for this. Ellie deserves a rest, and Rachel deserves a career, both of which will happen– hopefully. For those of you who love Ellie, don’t worry. She will still be a part of the series, and someone to whom Rachel can turn when she has questions, but it’s Rachel’s turn now, with Zach’s help. Virtually Undetectable is the transition book. Libby hopes you like the new arrangement.Read an Excerpt
