This is a must read for all the girls that know that WIG really means Women in Games. With Christmas creeping around the corner, all that Tove wanted to do was to hide from family drama and the real world into the safety of cyberspace with her pug girl, Q. Stockpiled with enough coffee to wake the dead, Tove was ready to take a well-deserved break from hacking and sharpen her blade in the Mists of Pandaria, to the sound of Big Bang Theory and re-runs of X-Files. She might even try her luck at DayZ – hopefully without having all her stuff pinched. Well, if only. Press-ganged into action by Interpol, Tove finds herself stuck in Prague, with a target painted on her back, and forced to play spy-games with her BFFs computer whiz Arnie and the gadget guy of the group, Ota – who also happens to be determined to set her up. Running against the clock, going undercover, chasing terrorists, and fending off a group of black-hats, what could go wrong?
A games industry veteran, N. P. Statham knows exactly what it is to be a girl in a world where girls aren't supposed to like computers, games, sci-fi, comics - in short, all the fun things in life. A life-long geek, she embraces her love for all things tech in the character of Tove Torv, sharing first hand experiences and anecdotes that only someone who has been in the trenches can offer.
The author's expat experience is reflected in thrillers and crime mysteries set all over the world, with a distinct European flavor.
Apart from writing, N. P. Statham also teaches game development at the Uppsala University, and enjoys books, far too many crime TV shows, and of course a good game. She lives in Visby, Gotland, with her husband and her pug Petal (Q's alter ego).
