內容簡介

  ‧這個受盡委屈平凡無奇的女孩,即將揭露一個最驚人的事實:英雄與惡棍的差別在於-「行銷手法」
 
  ‧詩人的小說出道之作,用黑色幽默來帶領讀者探究何謂善?何謂惡?
 
  Anna在罪犯的手下做一些行政的打雜工作,當然這一點也不光榮,可是她需要工作,而且這個工作難道真的就比不上什麼石油企業或是保險公司的員工嗎?尤其是在這種世道下?其實她也不過就是一個小齒輪,可是一切事情都在拿到正式工作契約後亂了套。一個世人眼中的「超級英雄」將她打成重傷,但說真的,比起身旁那堆屍體,Anna還算幸運的。
 
  沒有錢、行動又不便,只剩滿肚的怒火,Anna在網路上發現原來自己的遭遇根本不是個案,她決定開始揭露這些所謂的「英雄行為」下的真相。為了拯救一名人質,一個超級英雄可能會造成五名反派人手傷亡、上百萬的修繕重建費用,全都由市民買單,這樣公平嗎?重點永遠都是「數據分析」:如何搜集、如何運用,甚至如何將這些資料化為利器攻擊或防守。隨著她的讀者越來越多,Anna再也不是當年的小齒輪,她開始懂得利用社群媒體和熱門影片來影響民眾們對事件的判斷。
 
  很快地,Anna再度被雇用,而且是這世界上最可怕的惡人。當Anna成為惡人強力助手的這個瞬間,是否能運用她的能力拯救世界呢?

  "This book is fast, furious, compelling, and angry as hell. -- Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author

  A smart, imaginative, and evocative novel of love, betrayal, revenge, and redemption, told with razor-sharp wit and affection, in which a young woman discovers the greatest superpower--for good or ill--is a properly executed spreadsheet.

  Anna does boring things for terrible people because even criminals need office help and she needs a job. Working for a monster lurking beneath the surface of the world isn't glamorous. But is it really worse than working for an oil conglomerate or an insurance company? In this economy?

  As a temp, she's just a cog in the machine. But when she finally gets a promising assignment, everything goes very wrong, and an encounter with the so-called "hero" leaves her badly injured. And, to her horror, compared to the other bodies strewn about, she's the lucky one.

  So, of course, then she gets laid off.

  With no money and no mobility, with only her anger and internet research acumen, she discovers her suffering at the hands of a hero is far from unique. When people start listening to the story that her data tells, she realizes she might not be as powerless as she thinks.

  Because the key to everything is data: knowing how to collate it, how to manipulate it, and how to weaponize it. By tallying up the human cost these caped forces of nature wreak upon the world, she discovers that the line between good and evil is mostly marketing. And with social media and viral videos, she can control that appearance.

  It's not too long before she's employed once more, this time by one of the worst villains on earth. As she becomes an increasingly valuable lieutenant, she might just save the world.

  A sharp, witty, modern debut, Hench explores the individual cost of justice through a fascinating mix of Millennial office politics, heroism measured through data science, body horror, and a profound misunderstanding of quantum mechanics.

  --Jennifer Estep, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Crown of Shards series
