I read a novel back in 1996 which dealt a bit with telepathy and the internet. The main character cat/kat was a male ruffian picked up off the street by the police. They used his telepathic powers to connect directly into the internet to control cybercrime organizations (I think). It was a bit of a scifi, cyberpunk kind of novel. I think the author was a woman, but I could be wrong. If anyone has read anything similar please post. I have been trying to find this book for years. Thank you!
