Über diesen Titel


Finley, an electronic detective for the National Crime Information and Analysis Center, makes a few faceless friends through her modem, but as they suddenly begin to log off for good, Finley feels that her life is also threatened.

From Kirkus Reviews:

First-novelist Simpson's come up with a nifty premise for a detective story: A hearing-impaired government researcher known simply as Finley, who feels comfortable and secure only with the friends she talks to via her computer keyboard, investigates a series of throat- slashings by finding out which bulletin boards the victims had logged onto. But, unfortunately, the book doesn't live up to its conception: The characters--from the computer-fearing cop who works with Finley to the Pelagianist killer who believes (like Raskolnikov, but a lot less compellingly) in establishing his freedom by acting without motivation--are uniformly flat, and Finley, who never realizes that she's been chatting electronically with the murderer for months, and opens her door to a black-clad stranger after she's been warned that her life's at stake, is one of the densest detectives around. Routine stuff, then, with perhaps some appeal for modem mavens. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
