When a suspect dies on his watch, failure pushes Alaskan detective Qigiq to San Francisco--the land of magical technology--to regroup. His new fast-driving partner, Kandy Dreeson, calls at dawn: a beautiful avant-garde violinist is at the station freaking out about an Amazon box--and her missing roommate. Thus begins the hunt for a killer who leaves behind a torrent of body parts, videos of heinous crimes, and deadly explosions.
Qigiq and Kandy enter a world of cybercrime he doesn’t understand--but is determined to master. Dodging attempts on their lives with each new bit they decipher, they grow ever closer to a dangerous force that trades money for murder, and music for privacy. Closer with each Amazon delivery. Closer with each new victim.
Suspenseful and grisly with humor and seduction, Mash Up is a riveting read of intertwined action from the first sentence. High-speed chase suspenseful, exploding with power-struggle intrigue, and awash in Silicon Valley innovation; Mash Up captures the enchantment of the Internet Age, and the deadly power of a file copy.
Praise for Mash Up
“Cleverly designed, Mash Up is the perfect detective read, as well as a classic addition to the noir genre.”—San Francisco Book Review (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
“Klingler...puts the reader directly in the line of fire, and he doesn’t let up…Anyone interested in thrillers or police procedurals will find much to appreciate in this newest Qigiq installment.”—Foreword Clarion Reviews (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️)
“Klingler makes supreme use of his tech knowledge in a grisly mystery that strives to address the ethics of content ownership. His effortlessly clever prose makes the subject thoroughly entertaining…a thoughtful, well-constructed tale.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Klingler's new thriller is a ride into the dark side of computers and comedy. Klingler's plot definitely has a Quentin Tarantino-feel to it.”—San Francisco Book Review
"[Klingler] has fantastic talent for imbuing wit into situations that normally wouldn't be witty...almost every character offers some sort of unique perspective and really great moments where I laughed aloud. If you can make me laugh while simultaneously making me wonder what the hell is going on, then I'll read any book you have to write. The author's writing style actually reminds me a little of Dean Koontz, if you take out Koontz's supernatural leanings."—Literature Typeface
"Klingler is skilled at writing action scenes."—Foreword Clarion Reviews
Read information about the authorJoe Klingler was born in the Great Black Swamp on a hot July day during a cold war. In primary school he read Four Wheel Drift. That led to a soap box derby car named Restless, two crashes, and a lifelong love of motion.
Images of Jimi Hendrix playing the U.S. National Anthem at Woodstock inspired pounding on a Gibson in a garage band influenced by local groups like the MC5 and Iggy and Stooges whose pioneering punk music he figured existed everywhere—though it was actually coming out of Detroit, Michigan forty miles to the north.
Joe read The God Machine by Martin Caidin, and started thinking about the nature of computation. He studied electrical engineering, spent time doing research in medical image processing, published academic papers, wrote a few patents. All of which led to an interest in special effects and the software that made them. He co-founded a company that was soon acquired, leading to a string of jobs for bigger and bigger corporations until assimilation by a billion dollar enterprise gave him the idea for a book—which he wrote while moving 525 mph bouncing between the coasts of North America.
That book led to RATS, his debut novel, which draws on the beauty of technology, its uses, misuses and abuses. And how the collision of human ideologies shapes its future—and ours. A minor character in RATS led to Mash Up: a rollicking ride with student musicians through San Francisco, Silicon Valley, social media and the minds of persons who use sharp knives to solve problems.
He currently resides in California with an iMac and a couple of motorcycles, and has recently released his third novel: Missing Mona. He's fond of turbochargers, and loves his S1000RR.
