A gray hat hacker. A dark-hearted crime boss.
Baltimore isn’t big enough for both of them.
C.T. Ferguson uses his illicit digital skills as a private investigator. When a teenaged boy wants to find his missing older brother, C.T. takes the case.
He soon discovers the missing brother is a fellow keyboard wizard, which piques his interest. Then shadowy figures turn up wherever C.T. goes. He gets an offer he’s not supposed to refuse from a budding gangster.
He declines it anyway, of course. But how is it all connected to the missing programmer?
When the investigation takes a turn for the worse, C.T. must contend with the police trying to arrest him and a cadre of enforcers trying to kill him. Can he follow the clues online and in the real world in time to reunite a family?
You’ll love The Unknown Devil because it combines classic hard-boiled sensibilities and modern tech savvy in a compulsively readable package.
Kept My Attention Throughout
C.T. Ferguson Is back on the case with the Baltimore mobs, goons, and cops. This time it’s a brother looking for his kidnapped hacker brother. C.T. Has 3 female interests this time...could one or more of them be a spy? Or will they discover the others?
This is a romp through the streets and state of Maryland. It’s a bit of fun, a little fighting, and a shoot-em-up. Not perfect but less emphasis on what’s for lunch and more story. I could hardly stop reading the last 200 kindle pages.
I’m ready for the next episode now.
