Trouble and Her Friends


"Trouble" is the username of India Carliss, a former hacker who gave up her underground life traversing the net to be a network admin for an artist's colony when hacking became criminalized. She left everything behind, including her friends and girlfriend. Three years later, someone is causing trouble in the net using her username, implicating her in illegal activity. Trouble and her ex go on a quest to find the culprit uncovering a much more sinister plot.
