SWFG: Single, White, Female, Geek. That’s Lexi Carmichael, geek extraordinaire and Moffett’s protagonist. In “No One Lives Twice,” Lexi spends her days stopping computer hackers at the National Security Agency and nights avoiding her mother and eating cereal for dinner. Says Lexi, “Even though I work for a top-secret agency, I’ve never been in an exciting car chase, sipped a stirred (not shaken) martini, or shot a poison dart from an umbrella. Until today, that is, when two gun-toting thugs popped up in my life and my best friend disappeared. Hacking, espionage, sexy spy-men — it’s a geek girl’s dream come true. If it weren’t for those gun-toting thugs …”
In “No One To Trust,” Lexi has left the NSA for a fresh start with a new company, but, as luck would have it, their first client, a genius researcher, goes missing. His bosses think Lexi is involved, and apparently a man who nearly snaps her neck in a parking garage thinks she’s involved, too. Once again, Lexi finds herself in the middle of a complex and dangerous case.
