“Ghost in the Machine,” by Dean Giles, begins with an intriguing mystery of a runaway wife. Insurance salesman Dexter Newman’s wife Chloe has disappeared without a trace and taken their two sons with her. Try as he might, he cannot track her down. Under the influence of Deep, he visits his wife in a virtual world of liquor and pills.
Preoccupied with his missing family, he makes a deal with a devilish techno-wizard, who promises that through a secret technology, Dexter’s total immersion in the Internet will enable him to contact his missing wife and reconnect with his family.
Giles paints a rather bleak picture of one man’s addiction to the Internet and its disastrous consequences. Fast-paced and well written, you won’t be able to put this story down until the chilling conclusion.
