I got hooked years ago on Gores’s DKA novels, about a firm of San Francisco skip-tracers and repo men. He’s pretty much quit writing those — possibly because almost anyone these days with access to the Internet can do skip-trace. This one is about Eddie Dain, a tall, skinny Cal Tech grad and computer genius (by 1993 standards) who, for some unexplained reason, goes into private investigation instead of heading for Silicon Valley. He treats it all as a game, him and his hacker skills against the rest of the world — until his reluctance to drop a case results in his adored wife and small son being shotgunned to death, with Dain in the hospital for a year. Not surprisingly, he’s a different man when he comes out. He wants revenge. And he’s no longer skinny. But despite himself, even vengeance becomes a game in which he presents a face to the world that isn’t really him. And as he goes on, he begins to question the point of it all. And he begins to realize, with the help of a new semi-love interest, that his wife wouldn’t have wanted to be converted into an icon. The plot has some problems early on — it’s kind of hard to believe in Dain’s motivations — but the pace picks up nicely.

I had problems, though, when the action moved to New Orleans and then to the back country of the Atchafalaya (which is less than thirty miles from me). He describes highway routes that don’t exist — couldn’t geographically exist — and he lays on the Cajun-ness waaaaaaaay too thick. Even in 1993, it hadn’t been like that for some time, not among the younger generation. Not outside of a Justin Wilson routine. So while it’s a pretty good story, the author really should have stuck to San Francisco.
