Description
Sid Gomez, who is Jake Cardigan's partner in their war against future crime, has always liked the ladies. He's married four of them, and remains on good terms with all. So when his second wife, Jill Bernardino, calls him to say she's in trouble, Sid is concerned. Then Jill suddenly vanishes.Sid and Jake have two leads: Jill had spoken of her work on a screenplay about the life of Sonny Hokori, one of the most infamous TekLords, who before his death was a sworn enemy to Jake Cardigan. She also mentioned Garret Devlin, inventor of the Devlin gun, a secretive industrialist long suspected of underworld connections. Though Devlin officially died in an accident some four years ago, his body was never found.Jill's current husband, a respected charity fund-raiser, is none too pleased to have a couple of lowlife detectives asking questions about his wife'especially when one of them was once married to her. But a highly placed government source has offered to pay top dollar for finding Garret Devlin alive, and the police believe the connection between Jill and Devlin could be very profitable.This is the ninth novel in the Tek series, called ?as tough and scrappy as Captain Kirk? by The Wall Street Journal. The novels have been the basis for a comic-book series, a set of collectable trading cards, four highly rated television movies, and a twenty-two-episode cable television series, with William Shatner as executive producer.

display_description Private investigator Jake Cardigan and his partner, Sid Gomez, must race to save a woman trapped in the deadly crossfire of a violent war between rival TekLords William "Captain Kirk" Shatner of Star Trek fame returns with his ninth action-packed TekWar adventure, certain to thrill his devoted legions of science fiction readers. In the year 2122 an addictive new form of the fantasy-enabling electronic drug Tek is about to hit the market. This version, delivered to users over computer networks, would eliminate the need for Tek chips, thereby putting the old-school TekLords out of business. Jill Bernardino, the ex-wife of Sid Gomez, loyal partner of private eye Jake Cardigan, has been looking into this new development closely-a little too closely-and now finds herself in serious, possibly inescapable peril. Caught in the middle of a vicious international drug war, Jill is taken prisoner, and only Cardigan and Gomez can rescue her. But their efforts will put them directly in the crosshairs of warring squads of Tek-trade killers in a bloody cartel war.
