"Inspector Angel Cardenas has seen plenty of corpses like the one in Quetzal inurb - just another Juan Doe robbed of his cash, cards, internal organs, and then dumped in a gutter. However, Cardenas soon learns this particular murder is anything but ordinary..." "First, the infallible DNA-ID database insists the cadaver is that of two people - local executive George Anderson and a mysterious Texas businessman. Then Anderson's wife and daughter, Surtsey Mockerkin and Katla, turn up missing, their posh suburban home has been retrofitted into a huge time bomb...and at least three mob syndicates from as many continents are competing to capture or kill twelve-year-old Katla." "Who was the dead man, and why is his daughter being hunted? Relying on his training as a nearly telepathic intuit, Inspector Cardenas embarks on a search that leads him from the sex parlors and stimstick clubs of the Strip - where kids are deadly and even music can kill - to an undersea control room where computer crimes are committed by criminal computers."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
