Carac Allisonabout this book: LA Private Investigator Chalk has pulp fiction ink in his veins. But he brings more than gumshoe wisecracks to the new noir landscape. The tools of his trade are an unregistered Glock, a Porsche 911 and the hacker hardware to read your emails and listen in on your phone calls.
"Dark Digital Sky" is the first in the Dark Pantheon series. It starts with a job to find three adult sons fathered through a sperm bank. But then the brothers connect to a violent underworld heist. They become the critical link to a domestic terrorist stealing pharmaceutical drugs for veterans. And this madman is planning a video game style attack against the nation.
