Hello, everyone. I’m Lexi Carmichael, a twenty-five-year-old geek girl. I spend my days stopping computer hackers, gaming and living my life online. My nights? Those I spend avoiding my mother and eating cereal for dinner. Even though I work in a top-secret industry, until one year ago, I was a desk jockey who barely saw the sun. I’d never been in an exciting car chase, sipped a stirred (not shaken) martini, or shot a poison dart from an umbrella. In fact, I was twenty-one before I got my driver’s license, twenty-four before I bought something other than white cotton underwear, twenty-five before I went on my first real date, and I’m still afraid to go shopping alone.
I’ll be honest, I’m not a people person. Most people annoy me. It’s not that I’m anti-social—I’m just not user friendly. In fact, I’d rather endure twenty-six pap smears than be forced into small talk—yes, even with you.
Yet somehow, as I muddle along in my career, my path collides with brilliant hacking twins, a sexy government secret agent, a rich, handsome lawyer and lots and lots of bad guys. Hacking, espionage, sexy men—it’s a geek girl’s dream come true…as long as it’s online. When it’s happening in real life, it’s a lot for a girl to handle.
Now I’m traveling around the world from Rome to Indonesia to Africa stopping cyber criminals for the U.S. government and trying not to look too dorky while I’m doing it. I’m even dating, which is a miracle, and making a good faith effort to interact with others outside of my safe virtual cocoon. It’s not an easy path, especially since my newfound friends believe a little black cloud is following me around, but I’m trying. That’s me—saving the world, one brain at a time.
NO LIVING SOUL is Book 9 in the humorous Lexi Carmichael mystery series published by Carina Press and was released January 2, 2017.
Although I never expected it, my work as a computer geek has me traveling around the world, solving mysteries and fighting bad guys. Sometimes with my friends, but always with trouble by my side. So, you’d think by now, I would’ve expected to be plagued by danger when I headed to Egypt with my best friend, Elvis Zimmerman, and boyfriend, Slash, to help track down Elvis’s missing and estranged father. Nope.
Genius runs in the family, and we quickly discovered Elvis’s father is hot on the trail of an ancient and elusive artifact. One that people are willing to kill to find. Tombs, tablets, scarabs, and code come together as we follow a set of clues that has been waiting millennia to be discovered. Cracking code is my specialty, but I never expected to tackle one from fifteen hundred years before the advent of written language.
But the sands of time are running out. We are facing death as it was before the pyramids even existed. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, we won’t be able to rewrite history. So, it’s up to us to find and safeguard the secret to ensure no living soul ever encounters it. . .again.
