Deception, fueled by money, begins when a beautiful woman throws down serious cash for Jake to find her missing boyfriend. Violence follows when Jake and Sarah discover the couple is connected to a hacker who colors outside the lines, a beautiful pharmaceutical sales rep, a slimy cop who can't take a punch, and a federal agent bent on hiding the truth. They all know too much - and soon enough, so do Jake and Sarah.

This book is a great combination of an action story and a modern noir sensibility. The story is fast paced and definitely keeps you guessing what will happen next. Not only is it an adventure tale, the character development is interesting and has a strong noir influence.

Set in Portland, Oregon, there are great references and details that really bring the city into the story.

I love the strong female characters--no one needs to save them!

The narrator's approach lends to the noir feel and really brings the story to life.
