“A classic addition to the noir genre.”–San Francisco Book Review (5 of 5 Stars)
When a suspect dies on his watch, failure pushes Alaskan detective Qigiq to San Francisco–the land of technology–to regroup. His new fast-driving partner, Kandy Dreeson, calls at dawn: a beautiful avant-garde violinist is at the station freaking out about an Amazon box–and her missing roommate. Thus begins the hunt for a killer who leaves behind a torrent of body parts, videos of heinous crimes, and deadly explosions.
Suspenseful and grisly with humor and seduction, Mash Up is a riveting read of intertwined action from the first sentence. High-speed chase suspenseful, exploding with power-struggle intrigue, and awash in Silicon Valley innovation; Mash Up captures the enchantment of the Internet Age, and the deadly power of a file copy.
“Klingler’s new thriller is a ride into the dark side of computers and comedy…definitely has a Quentin Tarantino-feel to it.”–San Francisco Book Review
“A thoughtful, well-constructed tale.”–Kirkus Reviews

Computers fascinate me, so I studied engineering. Music intrigues me, so I studied piano. Special effects and Silicon Valley are in my past and in my blood. I became an author to examine the mystic dance between modern technology and the way people choose to use it. I saw a friend wearing a Napster T-shirt, muttered the word copyright, and was inspired to write Mash Up by the ensuing conversation.
Mash Up will take you on a rollicking ride through cyber-crime with a detective who is almost overwhelmed by it all, and his partner who wants to kick asphalt.
