Crossed Wires

"Crossed Wires, a highly original mystery novel, introduces readers to an unusual heroine, who is being stalked by a particularly chilling serial killer. Finley is tenacious, sympathetic, and attractive. What then makes her an unusual sleuth? Finley is deaf. And Finley and the murderer who hunts her inhabit, literally, a new world - almost a new dimension. They live an important part of their lives within the electronic bulletin boards accessed by their personal computers." "Finley, whose hearing impairment makes her vulnerable, has learned to live and rely upon faceless friends, especially Tracy and Jane, she knows only through her modem. She works as a researcher at CIAC, the National Crime Information and Analysis Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey, a very sophisticated clearing house for law enforcement agencies." "Even without romance, life is pretty good for Finley, with a challenging job as an electronic detective and an apparently reliable set of friends, until one beautiful fall morning the ebullient Tracy is murdered - her throat slashed and her computer's memory wiped clean." "Finley connects Tracy's death to a series of similar murders of young women and soon establishes that the killer is one of the familiar inhabitants of her bulletin board world. As the list narrows down to those she has come to regard as her particular friends, she first feels betrayed and finally threatened. Because now she knows she is next on the killer's list - and the murderer is getting very close." "Here John E. Simpson has made imaginative and persuasive use of modern technology and the subculture it has engendered. Clever, unusual, and action-filled, Crossed Wires brings an intriguing new detective - and her exotic milieu - to energetic life."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
