At this Silicon Valley startup, murder is a feature, not a bug?

SüprDüpr is the hottest startup in Silicon Valley until one of the company's physicists disappears and hacker Ted Hara sets out to find his missing friend. Led by a glamorous young scientist and funded by billionaire crypto investors, SüprDüpr promises to revolutionize transportation. But as Ted investigates the secretive company, nothing is what it seems. Are the millions the company is spending building a homeless shelter truly corporate philanthropy? Or is the company a complex real estate scam? As the homeless residents of San Jose begin disappearing, too, it appears something far more sinister is happening downtown. But why was his friend searching for a pair of elephants before he disappeared?

Days away from the technology unveiling that will confer unimaginable riches on the company's investors, Ted becomes trapped in a web of corruption protecting its founder. While avoiding the police, he has to find out why people are disappearing before it's too late. A crazy ride through the high-tech world of Silicon Valley, To Kill a Unicorn shows how far startup founders are willing to go to build their unicorns.
