Dead Anyway, by Chris Knopf
Arthur Cathcart, a market researcher, and his wife Florencia, an insurance company owner, are shot by home invaders after certain pieces of information are extracted from Florencia. Florencia dies, but Arthur survives the attack and fakes his own death to facilitate his investigation into the murder of his wife. The mechanics of the search are vague, and the characters paper thin. Probably not worth following the series as Arthur, and his underused sidekick Natsumi, probe the mystery even further.
