Descrizione

The DOP chip sits in Artemisia Lindsay’s brain, its tiny wires reaching through her cortex to fix the connections her own autistic neurons failed to make on their own. Artemisia can function in the human world, even if she's still just as logical, honest, and intense as she was before the computer in her head started managing her hyperactive senses. The one thing the DOP doesn't fix is the essential detachment she feels from the rest of humanity. It takes a police detective named Mike Tyler to do that.

When she's called to the scene of a kidnapping to help Mike find another DOP, a remote device attempts to rewrite her software. Although it nearly kills her, Artemisia’s sudden ability to see smells and heat, to control the senses that tortured her as a girl, makes it clear that the reprogramming has been gloriously successful. And it's the only clue they have to track down her attacker. An attacker who has kidnapped his first, failed, victim to study and who now knows his potentially fatal experiment can succeed under the right circumstances. He just needs more data points, and there are several hundred DOPs.
Unfortunately for him, Artemisia Lindsay, with her usual single-mindedness and considerable intellect, is going to find him and stop him. Even if it means sacrificing everything to do it.

Informazioni sull'autore

I always knew I was different from other people. It wasn't until I was in my early thirties that I found out that difference had a name ... autism. Specifically, Asperger Syndrome. It has never stopped me from leading a productive life; I have a happy family, a PhD in Chemistry, and a well-paying day job. It is, however, a struggle every day to maintain connections with other people, communicate with them appropriately, and not be confused by their behavior. I don't let the way my brain is wired limit me in any way though. Sure, I have to spend lots of time at home recovering from being around other people, but when I'm not doing that I am a homebrewer, a National-ranked beer judge, an aspiring triathlete, a windsurfer, a mountain biker, and, obviously, writer. I also have a day job at a large pharmaceutical company. Oh, and if you're interested how a woman with an ASQ of 41 can be so apparently functional in society ... watch this space. My memoir, including some suggested tips for helping your Aspie kid, will be up soon.
