In Too Deep
#HACKER Book 2

One talented hacker.
One dead body.
One explosive secret.

Life for Ferris Barnett is, well, complicated.
Her boyfriend has moved, her father has been assigned to an active duty station in Turkey, and one impulsive act leads her to a shocking discovery. A classmate’s body has washed ashore and his death has been listed as a suicide.
Soon, Ferris receives an anonymous message indicating that the death may not have been a suicide after all, but that he was killed, and that someone in her school may likely be a murderer. Ferris once again has to utilize her amazing and seemingly innate hacking skills to solve the mystery.
This time she delves into the secret—and surprising—life of a classmate who had never seemed more than a kind and quiet high-school student.

The second book in the #Hacker series is just as good—maybe even better—than the first. Ferris is still one of the wittiest characters I’ve read lately, a true snark-master. She’s smart, tough and not afraid to do what it takes to help others. Who doesn’t love that kind of female character?
All of the computer and hacking details still blow my mind and prove how thoroughly Sherry Ficklin must have researched the subject.
In Too Deep has a good flow, the action doesn’t seem to slow, each turn of the plot flows into another. I have to admit that this time, I only slightly guessed at “who did it” but the revelation was so much deeper than I’d imagined.
But, don’t take a deep, relaxing breath when you’ve discovered what really happened to Ferris’s classmate because there’s one more bombshell waiting at the end and I am counting the days until I can get my hands on book three.
