Behind The Silicon Mask
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
A techie community of around two hundred Indians stationed in Milwaukee suddenly finds itself under a siege. On a fateful Friday, a cyclonic snowstorm— Super Susan—is breaking winter records outside their windows. And beyond, somewhere in the inky darkness,a serial killer who targets immigrants is on the loose. An indiscreet TV journalist has already informed him that almost the entire community resides within a three block
radius in downtown Milwaukee. Two young techies belonging to the community— Partho Sen and Varun Belthangady—are particularly under threat. Unaware of this fact, they carry on as usual. Varun must deliver a crucial software application for his Fortune-500 client before the weekend ends. Meanwhile, Partho must confront his inner demons to save the most important relationships in his life. They must deal with these urgent needs, even as they deal with their rapacious corporate employer, an overambitious boss, unpredictable events unfolding in the living rooms and bedrooms of their colleagues—and the effects of the most potent cocktail in the world. There is one man who can save them yet from the serial killer—Detective Farley of the Milwaukee Police Department. But will the serial killer prove too clever even for him?
