This is an entertaining crime story set in the near future. The technical gadgets in this book make total sense and,a few years from now, we'll have them for sure, as well as the forensic advancements that help solve the murders. The protagonists, Kate and Jake, are real people. They both try to do the right thing, starting off on different pages, but eventually working together to unravel the mystery. Kate's and Jake's relationship isn't tied up with a pretty bow at the end, and that leaves plenty of possibilities for the future. I always enjoy that dance!
