Award-winning author Joan Hess packs mayhem, outrageous characters, and hijinks into this rollicking mystery set in rural Arkansas. Beleaguered chief of police Arly Hanks has her hands full when modern technology moves into small town Maggody, bringing with it controversy and murder. Maggody's high school has a new computer lab. Folks are calling the internet the Devil's workshop, but the adult computer class is filling up. Soon friends are exchanging E-mail, and the preacher is posting sermon notes. But when some mighty unusual images flash across monitors--and a pretty computer student is found dead in an abandoned shack--the town demands Arly find the answers. With tempers flaring and rumors raging, it will take all of Arly's low-tech resourcefulness to find the cold-blooded killer. Narrator C.J. Critt's sense of timing hones the hilarity and keeps you guessing throughout.

"In the quiet town of Maggody, the Internet has finally arrived, strange visions are haunting the inhabitants, a student has been murdered. Arly Hanks, chief of police, has her hands full, keeping the peace, catching the bad guys, and finding the creator(s) of smut. C.J. Critt characterizes the inhabitants of Maggody with believable Arkansan accents and phrasing. Unfortunately Hess's wisecracks and puns are deadened by Critt's full stop at the end of each joke, which causes Arly Hanks's charm to fall flat. But as the jokes fall, so do the bad guys, as Hess brings her tale of murder to an amazing conclusion. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
