For the first 1/3 or so of the book, I kept seeing parallels with the book "Microserfs". It was geeky fun in a universe that I knew and loved. I was confused that Veronica knew that Peter drove a Mitsubishi Eclipse and that Wei drives a Honda Civic, but didn't care even about the brand of Ravi's minivan or Denise's 'icy blue convertible'. It seems odd that Ranna wouldn't have picked those details up since she's otherwise very detail oriented.
Then the plot twisted and it started reading more like a "traditional" mystery. Oh my! I'm typically an SF & Fantasy reader, but this was fun. :-) I liked how Ranna used her debugging skills to solve the mystery.
I can't wait for the next one!
For those interested in the world of high tech it provides an inside look since the author is a member of that profession. But the mystery plot of the book is most prominent. It's what kept me turning the pages. I tried to figure out the mystery but was surprised by the ending.
Years ago I worked as a programmer and was happy to discover that the main charater is a female programmer. This book gave me an updated view of the programming world and the women in it. Veronica and the other characters are well-developed. I feel that I know them and look forward to read more about them in the next book in the series.
