Introducing Claudia Lin: a sharp-witted℗amateur sleuth for the 21st century. This debut novel follows Claudia as she verifies people's℗online lives, and lies, for a dating detective agency in New York City. Until a client with an unusual request goes missing ... Claudia is used to disregarding her fractious family's model-minority expectations: she has no interest in finding either a conventional career or a nice Chinese boy.℗She's also used to keeping secrets from℗them, such as that she prefers girls-and that she's℗just been stealth-recruited by Veracity, a referrals-only online-dating detective agency. A lifelong mystery℗reader℗who wrote her senior thesis on℗Jane Austen,℗Claudia believes℗she's landed her℗ideal job. But when a client vanishes, Claudia breaks protocol to investigate-and uncovers℗a maelstrom of personal and corporate deceit.℗Part literary mystery, part family story, The℗Verifiers is a℗clever℗and incisive examination of how℗technology shapes℗our choices, and the nature of romantic love in the digital age. A VINTAGE ORIGINAL.
