Synopsis: Launching a computer fraud investigations agency, Julie Blake begins her first case probing the disappearance of renegade programming genius and suspected embezzler Arnie Lufkin, a case that brings her into the world of virtual reality. Reprint.
From Booklist: Julie Blake, first introduced in Raw Data (1991), returns in her second appearance, and it's about time, too. Again set in the Silicon Valley/San Francisco area and featuring computer nerds, this tale finds Julie about to open her own business investigating computer fraud, in partnership with Vic Paoli, her very hunky boyfriend. Their affair has progressed quite nicely, but their business is going nowhere. When Lorna Donatello, owner of a bail-bond business, asks them to find her missing boyfriend, Julie declines. But when it turns out that the boyfriend is Arnie Lufkin, the best-known virtual-reality programmer in the business, who has recently been arrested for embezzling half a million by hacking into his employer's general-ledger software, Vic persuades Julie that they should take the job even if it's not exactly computer fraud. Julie reluctantly agrees and almost immediately becomes the victim of a hacker, who interrupts her computer to warn her to back off from the search. This only whets her appetite, of course, and soon she is tracking Arnie by using the virtual-reality programs he left with Lorna. Chapman obviously knows the computer business inside out, and she uses it to great effect in this deftly plotted, wonderfully intriguing mystery. The only complaint is that we had to wait three years for Julie's second adventure--let's hope for a third in a third of the time. Stuart Miller
