The Florentine Deception by Carey Nachenberg Trailer and Giveaway

Book Description for The Florentine Deception:

seemingly mundane computer clean-up leads to an electrifying quest for
an enigmatic—and deadly—treasure in this gripping techno-thriller.

selling his dorm-room startup for millions and effectively retiring at
the age of twenty-five, Alex Fife is eager for a new challenge. When he
agrees to clean up an old PC as a favor, he never expects to find the
adventure of a lifetime waiting for him inside the machine. But as he
rummages through old emails, Alex stumbles upon a startling discovery:
The previous owner, a shady antiques smuggler, had been trying to unload
a mysterious object known as the Florentine on the black market. And
with the dealer’s untimely passing, the Florentine is now unaccounted
for and ripe for the taking. Alex dives headfirst into a hunt for the
priceless object.

What starts out as a seemingly innocuous pursuit quickly devolves into a
nightmare when Alex discovers the true technological nature of the
Florentine. Not just a lost treasure, it’s something far more insidious:
a weapon that could bring the developed world to its knees. Alex races
through subterranean grottos, freezing morgues, and hidden cellars in
the dark underbelly of Los Angeles, desperate to find the Florentine
before it falls into the wrong hands. Because if nefarious forces find
it first, there’ll be nothing Alex—or anyone else—can do to prevent a
catastrophic attack.
