After a hit-and-run leaves a young techie named Eddie in the hospital, Turing, an almost-sentient computer, tries to help her PI friend Tim find out who did it. While Turing tries to break into Eddie's computers, her human friends do the legwork. It seems Eddie lets his seedy friends use his computers-and some are running highly unsavory websites. Others are using spam to con people out of their credit card numbers. Then the feds show up, looking for an online vigilante who's also using Eddie's computers. Now Turing and her friends are caught in the middle. They can't let the vigilante continue-but they also can't tell the FBI everything without revealing Turing's identity to the world.

Donna Andrews is the author of two award-winning mystery series.From Booklist:
The prolific Andrews, author of the highly popular bird-themed Meg Langslow series, delivers another entertaining installment featuring Turing Hopper. If Turing were human, her kindness, intelligence, and integrity would make her a much-admired protagonist; the fact that she is an AIP, or Artificial Intelligence Personality (sort of like a sentient computer), makes her all the more noteworthy. Running the Alan Grace Corporation like the unseen Charlie of Charlie's Angels, Turing has let a handful of humans in on the truth of her existence. Two of these, Maude and Tim, are working with Turing to discover what happened to Eddie Stallman, a "computer nerd" who hosted Web sites in Virginia and was killed by a hit-and-run driver. As Turing looks into the mystery, she also continues to search for T2, an AIP "sister" who may have been kidnapped by Turing's archenemy, Nestor Garcia. As usual, Andrews concocts a farfetched plot, but readers (justifiably) enamored with Turing won't care. A unique and charming series. Jenny McLarin
