Gone with the Blogosphere.

The series, appropriately titled "The Detective from the Philology Department" by Shakhmatova, features the same linguistics-related traits in all of its stories. "Gone with the Blogosphere" tells about a murder of a couple in their own apartment. As it appears, they led very active social media lives, and the police decide to hire a philology expert to analyse all the amassed posts and messages for traces of threats or any other suspicious content. The protagonist, Viktoria Bersenyova, indeed finds many interesting details about the victims' personalities.

Shakhmatova told about how she came up with the idea, "As a philologist, I could predict that a protagonist like Bersenyova must appear in the genre. If we take the most significant words of the Russian Word of the Year 2017 poll, we see that half of them are from the cyber reality - bitcoin, mining, and rap battles. The text content of our lives - from social networks to electronic governments - grows constantly. And everyone leaves a huge text trace. Sooner or later, as I thought, a detective story would appear where the protagonist investigates crimes through texts which were left by perpetrators. In the end, after taking up legal philology, I realised that I have enough material and practice for my own series."

Bersenyova with her Dr. Watson-like sidekick - her nephew - uses all the available arsenal of text analysis methodology to dig through her findings and discover the truth. While the first novel focuses on social media, the second, according to Shakhmatova, will be staged at a large corporation which has become a target of information attacks.
