Being a private detective means dealing with some unsavory characters, but Lance Canela picks his contacts carefully. So when his go-to hacker, Wyatt, winds up on the run, it seems like bad karma catching up to him. It only becomes Lance's business when Wyatt cashes in a favor--dig up dirt on the followers of the crusading hacker known only as Eidolon.
The task only gets worse as he finds himself working alongside a clickbait blogger named Becky, whose main concern is unveiling the next big controversy. But as the investigation continues and Lance learns more about Eidolon and what he stands for, he's less and less certain that he's on the right side of this conflict. Is Wyatt taking advantage of him to get out of a bind, or could there really be a dark secret at the heart of Eidolon's attempts to right the world?
Eidolon is the second book in the Lance Canela series, following The Arcology. Also included is a special bonus short, Thoughts as Gray as Ash, in which Lance tackles a more personal case involving a client gone missing.
