Summary, etc.: Nat Idle, a San Francisco writer with a medical degree, narrowly survives an explosion in an Internet caf ̌after a stranger hands him a note warning him to exit immediately.

So begins HOOKED, a pop thriller for the Digital Age, narrated with the force and the pace of an intimate email dispatch you can't stop reading. Each chapter of this novel will keep listeners hooked as Nat Idle searches for the love of his life in the midst of manipulation and conspiracy. Just as previous generations were influenced by movies, today we are becoming hooked on Internet technology, which is changing the way we read, think, and dream.
