One moment Matthew Rivers is designing a revolutionary computer operating system, the next he is discovered strung from a tree in his front yard. Authorities believe it was a guilt-ridden suicide due to an exposed affair, however, Rivers's wife refuses to accept that theory and hires private investigator Chase Michael DeBarlo to seek the truth. Chase discovers a web of secrets behind the operating system Rivers had been designing, while others working on the project begin to turn up missing or dead in seemingly unrelated matters. In a turn of events that mixes social networking with code breaking, an unlikely coffee shop girl from Ohio helps tie it all together for Chase.


"Mike Ricksecker has written a nice, fast paced mystery that any mystery lover could love. His characters are believable in each of their roles, the story moves along quite well, and not everything is given away before it's time. If you enjoy a good mystery/thriller then I recommend "System of the Dead" -- Kindle Book Review
