D.E.M – Deus Ex Machina by Lee Ness

Genre: Adult, Thriller
Source: I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Rachel wants to do the right thing.  She tries to help locate an abducted child through her computer skills and ends up finding herself in over her head.  Not only is she involved when she hears from a vigilante with other jobs, but she seeks out the help of her friend Cam and drags him into the middle of all of this. Each job she and Cam completes leads them deeper until they’re not sure if they’re working for the good guys or the bad guys. This book is like riding a rollercoaster.  You think you know where you’re going in the story then you’re brought over the top on your way to another twist in the story.  If you’re not real computer knowledgeable don’t worry, the author has written it in a manner that those of us who know nothing about hacking, etc. can follow along just fine.  As you travel this path with them you realize that the money they receive can’t be a good thing because if they don’t do what D.E.M. wants they could be killed.  This is one of those books where you know the main character’s initial intentions were good, but saw they were making poor choices that would set it up to take you on a twisting turning thrill ride. Lee Ness did an excellent job of keeping the tension throughout the story.
