A computer hacker on the run heads to Paris to get answers but the truth may come at a price in this technothriller from the author of Betrayed.
With a price on her head, computer hacker Tina Adler is determined to stay offline. Only one person knows how to reach her, and he's in as much danger as she is.
A chance discovery leads Tina to abandon her South Carolina hideaway in search of her old flame, undercover FBI Agent Zeke Chapman. What is Zeke doing in Paris, France? And what is his connection to the disappearance of American college student Ryan Whittier?
En route to Paris in search of answers, Tina realizes that someone is on her trail and getting disturbingly close. Has she been set up?
“This timely thriller is Alias meets Hackers and you can’t get any cooler than that.”—Hank Phillippi Ryan, USA Today–bestselling author
“The protagonist of Vanished barely has time to breathe, and neither do we.”—Joseph Finder, New York Times–bestselling author of The Switch
Olson's frenetic fourth Black Hat thriller (after 2017's Betrayed) finds bespectacled 40-year-old artist Tina Adler, a former computer hacker once known as Nicole Jones, at a Charleston, S.C., art gallery, where wealthy society matron Madeline Whittier expresses interest in buying one of Tina's watercolors. Madeline also tells Tina she looks familiar. Tina, who's anxious about preserving her anonymity, excuses herself. A quick computer search reveals a connection between Madeline's college-age son, Ryan, who disappeared in Paris four months earlier, and Tina's love interest, FBI special agent Zeke Chapman. Tina is soon fleeing from the FBI; the hit men who have been hired by her arch nemesis, gangster Tony DeMarco; and assorted villains lurking on the web. Tina runs, leaps, bounces, slams, and spins along in a race across the country that eventually takes her to Paris. The only element that doesn't zip along at breakneck speed is Tina and Zeke's romance, as much of their courtship is carried out in chat rooms. Still, series fans will enjoy the ride.
