The Ghost of Silicon Valley

A novel by

A mystery/ghost story about the haunting of Silicon Valley's premier software company that gallops into action on the first page.

Can one of Silicon Valley's premier software companies be haunted? "Impossible," says Bobby Race, CEO of the company and a powerful force in the information industry. "Don't be so sure," counters Kevin Pierce, a talented but down-at-the-heels portrait artist who knows too well that supernatural life does exist.

Kevin has been saddled for ten years with his own personal ghost-Sport Sullivan, a cynical, street-wise gambler murdered in 1920. Desperate to save his company from the embarrassment of a haunting, Bobby Race hires Kevin to rid the company of its ghost under the guise of painting Bobby's portrait. The ghost appears to be Cynthia Gooding, a company employee who died in a suspicious "accident" at company headquarters.

Along the way Kevin becomes involved with two very sharp, quite different career women. Dorothy Lake is an emotionally buttoned-down genius programmer who wants Kevin more than she will admit. Jenny Hartsong, executive secretary to the CEO, is a health and exercise fanatic who wants to break Kevin of his dependency on Carta Blanca beer. Throw in Izzy Valentine, a gangster trying to buy (or threaten) his way onto Bobby's board of directors; Big Sam Cody, the best car thief in San Francisco; and Pure John Braggia, a thug with excellent manners.

With the help of Sport Sullivan (an ethereal cousin to Dr. Watson), Kevin must walk through a mine field of these dangerous characters to uncover the reason Cynthia Gooding's ghost is haunting the executive suites of Silicon Valley.
