Cyber Match is the third published novel in my Sammy Jo Turner mystery series. The books within this series follow a sequential timeframe. Each storyline is independent and may be read in any order. Previous Sammy Jo Turner novels: The Universal Donor In The Name Of Beauty Cyber Match New York: The city that never sleeps. Nor does the NYPD. For Sammy Jo Turner of the NYPD Forensics Lab, it’s the unsolved cases that are keeping her up at night, particularly the new wave of cybercrimes. Who are these perpetrators? How widespread are their cybercrimes? Is there really such a thing as a Cyber Match? Sammy Jo assists the Cybercrime Unit in this newest Sammy Jo Turner mystery. Twists and turns abound as the investigators take one step forward and several steps back. Is the Cybercrime Unit taking too many risks? Are there more victims out there? Will justice be served?

INTRODUCTION

Sammy Jo Turner wanted to swallow … or scream for help, but the sock covered by duct tape prevented her from doing either. Wrists and ankles padlocked to a chair, pain trickled through her body with every move. Squirming in her seat merely enhanced her fatigue. The shackles would not budge.

She assessed her situation. While working under cover, she had dinner in a restaurant with Mark Channing. How did she end up in this gross dungeon? Is this his basement, workplace, or what? There’s only one explanation. Somehow, he managed to drug her. Then he brought her to this disgusting place, bound, and gagged her and left her with no food, water, bathroom access, or means of communicating with the outside world. She never would have come here willingly. Never.

What did he want with her? Had she blown her cover? Would he kill her or hold her hostage and demand a ransom? Then again, he could just be a clueless psychopath. Lose-lose full circle. Due to a breach of protocol on her part, only Mark is privy to her whereabouts. Scary picture indeed. She must signal for help before he returns, or else …
