Abstract:

Dot dead is told in the voice of Ian Michaels, a Silicon Valley wonderkid who works for one of the hottest tech firms on the planet and under one of its brightest lights, a Bill Gates-inspired figure named Paul Berk. Berk is more than a boss or a mentor to Michaels --- he is also his friend. Michaels is doing quite well until he returns home one afternoon and finds a lifeless Gwendolyn Goldberg on his bed. Goldberg was Michaels's part-time housekeeper, though he had never met her. More surprises await Michaels. Goldberg's family and ex-boyfriend insist that she spoke often of Michaels, and inferred that they were lovers. This puts Michaels at the top of the suspect list, a position that's solidified when additional evidence is found that seems to confirm that he and Goldberg had a relationship.
