Award-winning author Joan Hess packs mayhem, outrageous characters, and hijinks into this rollicking mystery set in rural Arkansas.

To the quirky and colorful residents of Maggody, Arkansas, population 755, “going online” is something one does at the DMV. So when the high school’s new computer lab gains access to the Internet, the town is plunged into virtual chaos. Students are caught sneaking peeks at pornographic websites and compromising photos of prominent Maggody citizens are being flashed across the display monitors. But when the body of a promiscuous young woman is found in an abandoned shack, a web of suspicion ensnares the community. Now as cyber crime strikes Maggody, police chief Arly Hanks has to use all her low-tech resourcefulness to pull the plug on a murderer.
