Someone has hacked into the computers at St. Anne Medical Center. What looks like a prank quickly turns deadly. The hacker has been changing patients' medical records. His actions have already resulted in a death. Christopher Bellamere has been hired to figure out how the hacker is accessing the system and stop him preferably before another patient dies. The job turns personal when the hacker targets Christopher’s partner David in an effort to get him to quit. The attack on his husband only makes Christopher more determined to catch the killer and stop him once and for all.

However, as Christopher continues to dig the attacks on David get more serious. As an openly gay cop detective David Eric Laine has to constantly prove himself. It helps that he is excellent at his job. When child pornography is found on his computer an investigation is immediately launched and David is suspended. He knows he is innocent but those in charge would love a reason to get rid of him. Chris and David must work together t clear David’s name and stop the killer before he strikes again.

I couldn’t put this book down. L.A. BYTES is the thrilling third novel in P.A Brown’s L.A. series. With each successive mystery this author just keeps getting better and better. This novel is reminiscent of L.A. HEAT, the first novel in the series, in that Chris plays a central role in the mystery. I enjoyed seeing more of Chris and to see him working so hard to find the hacker. He is focused and very good at his job. It is a side of him that the reader hasn’t seen much of in the past. I gained insight into his character as I read. I feel as if I got to know him a lot better. Chris and David’s relationship has deepened and strengthened since the last novel and it is wonderful to see them so much in love.

Chris search for the hacker and David’s current case are equally intriguing. With each clue I found myself drawn further into the story.  I don’t ant to give too much away but I will say that the plot is expertly and intricately woven. There are some unexpected twists and there were a couple of times where I thought I had the mystery solved only to be proven wrong. L.A. BYTES is a gripping and captivating mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat.
