I just finished reading dot.dead, a Silicon Valley murder mystery by Keith Raffel. Yes, a murder happening in Palo Alto at the home of Ian Michaels, a high-tech executive; searching for clues on Stanford campus and running the dish to think deep thoughts and unravel the mystery.
Will Ian Michaels be indicted and spend the rest of his life in jail? Or perhaps he will be promoted to that COO job he's been eying for a while, or even leave his company and start his own? And in the process, how many eligible (or non-eligible) women will try to seduce him?
Read the book and find out. Not bad for an author who used to be a high-tech guy himself.
