Marshland

"Marshland: A remarkable detective novel, thanks in part to its sincere, exemplary protagonist."     Kirkus Book Review

 

What’s possible when so much can be tracked and monitored?  When social media has such a pervasive effect on our lives? Technology is a double-edged sword, it can be used for good and for evil. And sometimes evil things can be done in the name of "larger good."

Marshland is a detective story set in modern Los Angeles. The protagonist, Ben, is an everyman who experienced his share of setbacks. Death of an old friend shakes Ben out of his inertia and forces him to confront the issues he had buried inside. A quest for redemption, corruption of power, individual rights vs. societal interests: all of them collide on the battlefield of the 21st century technology.
