Louisiana Cajun Annette Dupart is head strong and self-confident, and has experienced many crazy things during her workplace travels throughout the Deep South. However, the theft of a Mercedes, the embezzlement of thousands of Bitcoins, people dressed as gaming avatars, gruesome murders, and Corsican gangsters were not on her docket as she flew into the Atlanta International Airport.

What she discovers is an entangled web of murders, a slew of video-game addicts living avatar lives, and corrupt investment club members who are stealing the internet currency known as Bitcoins. Annette and video game junkie Vijay Singh join forces at a video gaming convention in an effort to keep one step ahead of a Corsican crime mob’s pursuit. Will Annette and Vijay survive the convention’s hijinks, evade the mob, and bring the criminals to justice? For Annette, it is an exciting and exhausting case of the Bitcoin Bluz!

The value of Bitcoins goes up and down wildly. Recently, a Bitchain server, Mt. Gox in Tokyo, was compromised and several hundred thousand Bitcoins simply disappeared.
