Deep Fake Double Down
Debbie Burke, author
What if a viral video appeared on social media that showed you committing a heinous crime? How do you prove your innocence when millions saw you with their own eyes. A corrupt warden at a Montana prison covers up the murder of a Native-American inmate by framing a biracial female guard with deep fake videos that implicate her. On the run from cops who will shoot first and ask questions later, the guard begs for help from investigator Tawny Lindholm and her attorney husband Tillman Rosenbaum. Then she disappears. Tawny and Tillman enter a sinister world of illusion where their professional and personal lives will be destroyed if they don't find the truth. Video may be fake but death is all too real. DEEP FAKE DOUBLE DOWN is #8 in the award-winning Tawny Lindholm Thriller series.
