THE STORY: A woman vanishes without a trace and an unusually wide police investigation is launched immediately. The vanished is a single mother of two children who is one of the best computer systen administrators in the country. There has been a lot going on in her private life but there is a lot of secrecy regarding her work in the past few months before she vanished. Soon it is discovered that more than just the police are looking for her, and the investigation spreads behind the curtains of politics, into the leathered dark rooms of business and to the cold reality of those who are in the lowest step on the ladder of society. There is a fast rhythm in the story and suspense that drives the reader onwards.
THE MUSIC: The story is complex and many have something rotten in their closets. Alibis are lame and peoples memory of events is unreliable. The use of language is vulgar and many have a grudge against each other. I tried to put emphasis on the rough and mysterious, the false and unreliable.
