Techno Crazed – A Hacked Investigations Novella

Private investigator Hannah Franklin’s life is turned upside down after being contacted by a former employee of MAX Home Security, the leader in security services. But they’re not just protecting people anymore. Hannah’s informant claims to have proof that MAX has ordered the assassination of politicians who stood against the corporation.

When her informant is killed and an attempt is made on her life, Hannah has no choice but to contact a freelance hacker. Her only hope now lies in the hands of a man she never expected to welcome back into her life.

Ian Bradley has lost his girlfriend and his job, as well as having acquired a very annoying gnome. Now his ex, Hannah, is in danger, and she needs his help. Ian vows to protect Hannah with every resource available to him — and as a technomage in a high-tech world, his resources are almost endless…

***Gladys -#NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***
 Techno Crazed is my first introduction into the writing style of Sarah Makela and I will have to say YIPPEEEEE loudly!  This short but eventful futuristic read was thrilling and refreshing.  I enjoyed this book and all of the scifi elements, especially since I was nursing a book hangover from Ilona Andrew’s Burn for me!!

Sarah’s world was built with precision and remained consistant; her characters Hanna and Ian were totally realistic and well rounded and the plot thickens with every new page turn.  I enjoyed the main character’s interactions and the added splash of the zippity spunky gnome Bernard who is Ian’s, the technomage, roommate.

Even though the premise is the same (old flames that didn’t want the flames to go out, but had to for the sake of the greater good AND then **BREATH*** got back together to save the day), the novella took me by storm and I hope it will you too!

Sarah, I tip my Nerd Girl Hat to you and can not wait to read the next book!!!
