Technically Dead is a mystery that takes place in the near future. Archie Teal is a technical genius aided by his digital assistant Erasmus in solving crimes. He works with Detective Nikki Sharp. They find the murder case of a technology executive particularly challenging. Every suspect they can identify seems to have an alibi. Erasmus can be particularly helpful, in that he has a secret connection to NSA resources that Archie installed when he worked there.
