About the Book

Silicon Valley scion Captain Don Donogue is dead under mysterious circumstances. Signs point to murder. Just ask Captain Don himself. He's been sending messages about his suspicious death from beyond the grave. Yep, he's been tweeting from the afterlife.

Could life after death be Silicon Valley's latest innovation This is the mystery that confronts the only sane person left in a region gone mad with greed, William Fitzgerald. Fitch. He's a world-class detective-tough, stoic, carries a big stick and a flip phone. He's a bad fit for Silicon Valley, where couples are so anxious to get into the best free-play kindergartens that they get on the waiting list as soon as they freeze their eggs.

One day, a woman knocks on Fitch's door. She's got a handful of cash and a wild story: She says that her father was Captain Don, or is Captain Don. He was killed, or maybe not. Fitch takes the case and goes into the belly of the Valley, discovering that life and death-well, sometimes they're just another transaction.

The Man Who Wouldn't Die marks the debut of a hilarious, original, and necessary voice in American comedic literature-one already being hailed as “the Carl Hiaasen of Silicon Valley.”
