(Written under my pen name N.K. Traver)
A computer-hacking teen. The girl who wants to save him. And a rogue mirror reflection that might be the death of them both.
Pitched as BREAKING BAD meets THE MATRIX for teens, DUPLICITY follows seventeen-year-old Brandon, a computer expert who hacks bank accounts in his free time, through a downward spiral of events after his mirror reflection starts moving on its own.

“… one of my favorite reads this month, and I definitely recommend it to fans of the twisted and strange….a really, really intriguing concept.” — USA Today

“Original. Pitch perfect voice. A stunning debut. I’m jealous. N.K. Traver knocks it out of the park. A must read. I. Could. Not. Put. It down.”
— Roland Smith, New York Times bestselling author of PEAK and the I, Q series
“An intriguing, fast-paced read. It’s the dark, malevolent-mirror-filled soul baby of Tron and The Matrix that I never knew I wanted. Don’t miss it!”
— Kendare Blake, author of ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD
“DUPLICITY is an incredibly unique, fast-paced debut. I’ve never read a story quite like it! With a clever writing style and satisfying hints of humor….It kept me thinking, even after I finished the last page.”

“I finished this book in one sitting and then picked it up to re-read because I wanted more. Each chapter is a thrill ride with twists leaving you on the edge of your seat. I have read a few other books in YA on overuse and technology gone wrong but DUPLICITY is a class in its own and a breathe of fresh air in this genre of science fiction.”
