I found this book on Netgalley and thought that it sounded like an interesting read. Was I right, or was I right? In fact, I’ve now gone on to read two other books by the same author (a series featuring the same main characters). I must warn you, if you’re paranoid about technology and how it can be used to know every single detail about your life, then you will be vindicated when reading this book! It is scary and fascinating at the same time.
The plot follows an FBI agent who gets killed whilst on assignment and his wife is not satisfied with the official answers given to her by the FBI, so she goes on her own investigation.
Now, this is a fairly common plot shell to have, but Reich makes it work. Clearly a lot of research went into this book due to all the technological jargon and explanations, and that is a credit to Reich that he didn’t just write a simple thriller plot. Even the characters are fairly well fleshed out, and that does not often occur with a lot of plot driven thrillers.
This was a quick and easy read, and that is exactly what I’m looking when picking a thriller. If you want an author that can put their personal breadth of experience into words to create a good story, then look no further than Christopher Reich!
