Gabriel Blackstone is an information thief for those who can pay. He and his partner Isadore, a master hacker, break into corporate networks and get the required information for their competitors. Gabriel is content and comfortable and would prefer not to remember when he used to break into people's minds as an RV (remote viewer) for the government and the great failure that still brings pangs of guilt. But his past is back. Frankie, the woman he loved, wants him to find her missing stepson Robbie Wittington. Gabriel doesn't want to get involved, but the innocence in Robbie's eyes pulls him into a mystery that could cost him his mind and his life.From official release/information:
Book Description: Gabriel Blackstone is an unscrupulous hacker and unrepentant "remote viewer" who can't resist his ex-lover's request to look into her stepson's disappearance. His investigation leads him to a rambling Victorian home that bewitches him-as do its beautiful, enigmatic owners, the Monk sisters. The pair are solar witches, obsessed with alchemy and the Art of Memory, a practice invented by the ancient Greeks.
