INTERNET PIONEER MURDERED!
Barely a week before Internet pioneer Hunter York, founder of Yippee, died in an auto accident, he gave his old friend Mike Gold an envelope. ďJust something Iíd like you to open when I die,Ē he said with a big grin. But when Mike opens the envelope, he finds an enigmatic letter from Hunter, stating that he had uncovered serious wrongdoing of some sort and was concerned about how long he had to live.
The letter also asks Mike to help Hunterís estranged 21-year-old son and only heir, Jason, cope with his inherited wealth and controlling interest in Yippee. To do that, Mike becomes CEO of Yippee, where his main task is to break up and sell the fading portal company.
Mike soon uncovers evidence that Hunter York was murdered. Then Jasonís Uncle Albert is killed in a drunken shootout with police, and is named by the cops as Hunterís murderer and, perhaps, the murderer of Jasonís mother and brother five years earlier.
But Mike Gold discovers that he has only scratched the surface of the insidious conspiracy behind the Yippee murders. And, if he doesnít solve this mystery quickly, more deaths may be on the way.
