Mattie Fresno and the Holoflux Universe
Mattie Fresno endures an uneventful life, until her grandfather--Nobel physicist, Raff Buddemeyer, leaves a videotaped will. Death, according to his unorthodox theory, is no barrier to their relationship and he promises to "always be there." The message triggers a series of hallucinations which quickly disrupts Mattie's world. At the family-owned PR firm, she becomes involved in a bizarre plot to save the reputation of the firm's top client, Phoebe Lynn Slidell--talk show host and exploiter of third world labor. Mattie lands in jail for murder conspiracy, when Phoebe Lynn is assassinated in revenge for a horrific industrial accident. In her cell, Mattie discovers an unexpected solution to her problems-- according to her grandfather--her freedom awaits in the holoflux universe.
