Blurb
about The Anonymous Girl:
“Action against corrupt authorities mixed with master plans
concocted from prison build the suspense of this young woman’s story.
“A precocious young woman uses prison computers to plot her
future in the bundled edition of That Girl Started Her Own Country and its
direct sequel, The Anonymous Girl. These two episodes of this series build
mounting suspense about the mysterious heroine’s family lineage and future
plans.
“To hide her identity, the titular girl uses aliases, such as
Pippi Longstocking and Ester Bilderberg, but she calls herself Zaydee among
friends. A reactionary moment with an FBI agent lands her in the Federal
Detention Center in Miami. There, a sympathetic prison guard facilitates
Zaydee’s occasional time away, where she awaits trial for charges she insists
are spurious. On these sojourns, she orchestrates revenge on the two FBI agents
responsible for her incarceration and pursues romantic interests. While in
prison, she sets in motion a master plan to establish her own country, using
her computer skills to hack websites. Zaydee believes she possesses the
resources to populate her private domain solely with exceptional people like
herself.
“Zaydee’s mysterious identity is compounded by the parallel
story of her twin sister, Lizee, who experienced a less nurturing childhood.
Liz goes to London to visit her lover, Lars, a computer expert sequestered in
the office of a hacking group. Unaware the two women are actually different people,
Lars mistakes look-alike Liz for Zaydee, who he claims to truly love. Hearing a
menacing noise at the office door, he tells Liz where to hide and gives her a
box of letters intended for Zaydee. This chapter ends in heightened suspense:
‘Slipping through the small opening [within a wardrobe], she let the door close
behind her, sealing herself into the safe room.’
“As the principal protagonist, Zaydee’s enigmatic personality
unfolds through her internal thoughts as she plans her future and charms cohorts
into helping her. Action scenes and rich narrative description move the plot
forward at a quick pace. She seeks revenge against corrupt authorities while
befriending the people she considers worthy of her friendship. Her goal of
living entirely on her own terms and manipulating those who will share her
idealized country seems less than altruistic.
“The author introduces real people of public note as
incidental characters. Alan Dershowitz serves as Zaydee’s legal adviser while
she’s in prison. Nancy Grace is warned to ‘tread lightly’ and stop digging into
Zaydee’s fruitful efforts to undermine her antagonists. William Barrett of
Forbes arranges for a private meeting with Zaydee at the prison to reveal
important family connections.
“The self-assured writing style renders Zaydee’s ideas and
interactions with others believable, despite her larger-than-life attributes.
…. A short excerpt from the projected sequel completes this combined volume
of That Girl Started Her Own Country and The Anonymous Girl.
“This book’s author adds mystery to the series by remaining
anonymous. Those who like fantasies set in the present day, depicting
exaggerated lifestyles and cyberspace intrigue, will be entertained.”
Margaret Cullison, Foreword Clarion
Excerpt from The Anonymous Girl:
She explained to Ralfsson why this
was a good time for this business, that IPOs in the U.S. were drying up.
“Consequently, I have a second proposal for you. You transfer to me the
controlling interest in these shells, and buy from each company ten million
dollars of stock. You will have a legal minority interest in each company.
Then, I will make those companies successful.”
Ralfsson would have thought it
generous of Pippi under different circumstances, and he kicked himself for
getting nabbed by the Feds. “But what if I don’t have the funds and they were
embezzled in turn from me, by my partner Barduri?” He took a breath before
continuing. “I have with me two crooked hedge fund managers who will buy shares
in shells. Will you let me have something for helping you recoup your losses?
Let me bring them over to join us from that table over there.”
He glanced at the table where the
agents sat. The business suits made them look like they could be FBI agents,
but otherwise they looked crooked.
“I don’t care how the fuck you get
my money back as long as you get it back legally and without delay,” scolded
Zaydee.
Ralfsson, now feeling confident,
took a chance in going one step further. “There is one condition,” he said, as
Zaydee narrowed her eyes at him. “As you know, I’m breaking the
‘know-your-customer’ anti-money laundering laws by representing you without
knowing your true identity. Therefore, if you can’t properly identify yourself,
I won’t lift a finger to help you. Of course, you can go to the police, but if
you do you will incriminate yourself.”
Zaydee’s blood boiled. She sensed
something afoot. There was something awkward about his demand. “I’ll deal with
you on a different level moving forward. You have been given a generous offer
and have been forewarned. You should not take the consequences of upsetting me
so lightly.”
