Remember this guy?
He was first introduced in Waking Rose, but even first-time readers will quickly jump on board this rollicking adventure with the sword-wielding Alex O'Donnell and his nearly techno-phobic girlfriend, Kateri Kovach, who yes, take on forty cyberthieves.
Softcover, 216 pages, 6" x 9". Ages 14+.
In this high-tech thriller, Alex returns from college to find that his dad, a computer hacker and software programmer, has inadvertently discovered a mysterious website which leads to sudden wealth. But at what cost?
Practical, hard-working Kateri Kovach is suspicious of all this high-tech hoopla and tries desperately to keep the O`Donnell family running smoothly; mainly by cleaning up after them. Her biggest worries are finding a job and figuring out how to break up with Alex. Yet, she finds herself evermore immersed in the O'Donnell family activities - playing video games with Alex and his younger brothers Sam and David, caring for their mother suffering from MS, and battling a samurai security cat. Mayhem, martial arts, and murder ensue even as Alex pursues marriage with Kateri who wonders why she's letting herself be a part of the madness. But in the end, it just might be the anti-technological Kateri who saves the day...
