Dethany in Virtu/Noir


“Dethany in Virtu/Noir,” is an interactive novella featuring Dethany of “On the Fastrack” as she adopts a 1940s private eye persona to solve a crime in cyberspace. She finds herself in the middle of a gang war between two groups; one promoting online transparency and the other heightened data security.

Along with John Lotshaw and my wife Teri Holbrook, we’ve created a unique blend of words and images, available for the iPad. Readers will be able to make choices determining the direction of the plot, and we estimate that it offers roughly two hours of crime-solving fun. It’s yours for $2.99.

  1. Hi Bill. Nearly finished with the Daycare Years. I have throughly enjoyed the book to this point. I see you really expanded Dave’s character and let us see Susan’s sensitive but innovative Side. I laughed for some time regarding the Water Pistol fight on 1August, that was a real classic! I saw a lot of indirect editorializing depecticted through the kids. I have not forgotten Mathew, he is developing into a fine character. I am coming up to the sections related to guilt and am looking forward to it. I am two years older than you and I can still enjoy all of your strips. Charles Shultz got it right.

  2. Readers will be able to make choices determining the direction of the plot, and we estimate that it offers roughly two hours of crime-solving fun. It’s yours for $2. Where did you get this information?

    • The price is $2.99. 🙂 The estimate of the reading time is based on how long it took us to go through it. Your mileage may vary. Thanks for your interest!
