Paradise has no protection from a hacker with a hidden agenda.
Special Agent Sophie Ang’s emotions are battered by a child kidnapping case. In tracking the criminal ring, her rogue data analysis program D.A.V.I.D. identifies an anomaly that leads her into a cat-and-mouse game online with a cyber vigilante whose motives are unclear. The chase lures her into a confrontation with the violence from her past that sent her fleeing to the United States. She’ll need every skill she’s learned to defeat her worst nightmare—and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
“Toby Neal has created a wonderfully rounded action heroine..fans of the genre will love her." Russell Blake, NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author
A fascinating, fast-paced, suspenseful read
Wired In (A Paradise Crime Novel) by Toby Neal is the first book in Toby’s new series about FBI Special Agent Sophie Ang, her life and her adventures. We previously met Sophie in the Lei Crime series where she often works the tech aspects behind the scenes. In Wired In, we find Sophie involved in the field right from page 1 as she works a child kidnapping case in Honolulu. Things become complicated and convoluted as she delves into cyberspace to figure out how various events are connected. Sophie and the security company that she winds up investigating use some very interesting high tech gadgets to do their work, which is quite fascinating. Again, Toby has done a lot of research to make these details plausible!
This book is a fascinating, fast-paced, suspenseful read—always keeping the reader on the edge of the seat. Of course, there is a romance aspect to it as Sophie begins to heal after some of the events in her past. I am so happy to get to know more about Sophie and her relationship with FBI Agent Marcella Scott and Marcella’s fiancé, Detective Marcus Kamuela. Other characters from past Lei Crime Series books show up throughout the book, but Toby provides plenty of background information so that it is not necessary to have read the other books—but you may want to! I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.
Best read in a long time. Intelligent writing, well-developed characters, and intriguing plot. What's next? Hope the next book is out soon.
A Must Read
I'm so happy excited to see that Toby Neal has taken one of my favorite Lei Crime characters and written a new series (Paradise Crime) about her. Wired In is the first novel in this series and I'm excited for future installments. Sophie Ang doesn't always but is a great detective. I love how this series focuses on one of her major skills, technology. Wired In demonstrates the versatility of Neal as a writer. A must read!
