"The Reconstruction:" A mystery novel by Karl Wiegers

Okay, so it doesn't have anything to do with consulting or with software, but I'm excited to announce that my first novel, The Reconstruction, was recently published. Here's the description:

When 34-year-old forensic sculptor Jessica Sanford completes a facial reconstruction on unidentified remains found in a forest outside Eugene, Oregon, she discovers that she has a shocking personal connection to the victim. Jessica is driven to identify the victim, confirm their relationship, and deliver justice for her death.

Adopted as an infant, Jessica cleverly exploits connections with other adoptive families in her quest. Once she understands her link to the victim, Jessica finds herself more immersed in this case than in anything she has done before. Those involved in the apparent homicide are still out there—and Jessica intends to find them. Her relationships, her career, and her life are at risk as she strives to reconstruct the victim's last days.

Not just about uncovering a crime and hunting the suspects, The Reconstruction is also about a young woman's search for her own identity. Jessica is a strong, independent woman who strives to balance her career, her passions, and her social life. The reader accompanies Jessica as she applies all of her skills and all of her smarts to try to solve the mystery of a lifetime.
