Overview

In Tek Money, Jake Cardigan tries to relax. But as he enjoys a rare night out at the theater, his son Dan has a frightening experience at the Cardigans' beachfront home. A seemingly deranged man, muttering to himself about nightmare visions that torment him, comes looking for Jake - and then dies suddenly, as Dan tries to find out what he wants. So begins an unwelcome sequence of events. First Dan is accused of murdering the man. Once the police realize that accusation is ridiculous, suspicion falls on Jake: the dead man is Peter Traynor, a Tek addict, a friend of Jake's from the bad old days, when the drug had a strong hold on them both. The murderer did Traynor in with a Tek "sizzler," a powerful chip that plugs directly into the user's brain, starts by giving him wonderful visions, and ends by producing uncontrollable hallucinations. Traynor has literally died of fear. Jake had not seen Traynor in years, but the police are still suspicious. In the meantime, it appears that everybody else in Traynor's past wants Jake's help in solving the crime. The dead man's sister, who has no money but does have a tremendous chip on her shoulder, wants to hire Jake - as long as somebody else pays. The dead man's ex-wife, a mysteriously wealthy woman, also wants to hire Jake, and she'll pay plenty - but it isn't exactly clear that a solution to the crime is what she wants for her money. Jake knows that his own good name is on the line until he finds the real killer.

The sixth novel in the fast-paced Tek series--now the basis for a hit TV show. A seemingly deranged man, muttering to himself, comes to the Cardigans' beachfront home looking for Jake--and then dies suddenly. When Jake is falsely accused of the man's murder, his investigation with his partner Sid Gomez uncovers some surprising--and dangerous--clues.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Private investigators Jake Cardigan and Sid Gomez follow a money-trail that leads them into danger in this sixth installment of a popular series. Purchase according to demand.
Roland Green
The seventh of Shatner's popular Tek novels puts future detective Jake Cardigan and his partner Sid Gomez through the wringer, along with the rest of the cast, not all of whom survive. Someone is obtaining illegal weapons from a California research firm and disposing of people who know too much. Cardigan and Gomez have to find out who the culprits are and stop them without getting themselves killed, getting Jake's son and his girlfriend killed, or attracting the wrath of the U.S. government, not to mention several other authorities, including the Southern California police. This book does not add any new dimensions to the future world of the series and, with its political overtones and pacing, is more a technothriller than, like its series mates, a classic hard-boiled detective story set in the future. It is, however, as readable as any of its predecessors, and Shatner includes enough hints on future developments that we can safely assume many more Tek novels are forthcoming.
