John Marrs is one of my favorite authors. I’m super excited to be able to read his latest novel!
Thank you Berkley Books for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: In the 21st century, information is king. But computers can be hacked and files can be broken into – so a unique government initiative has been born. Five ordinary people have been selected to become Minders – the latest weapon in thwarting cyber-terrorism. Transformed by a revolutionary medical procedure, the country’s most classified information has been taken offline and turned into genetic code implanted inside their heads. Together, the five know every secret – the truth behind every government lie, conspiracy theory and cover up. In return, they’re given the chance to leave their problems behind and a blank slate to start their lives anew. But not everyone should be trusted, especially when they each have secrets of their own they’ll do anything to protect.
And there he does it again! Another fantastic book I couldn’t put down once I picked it up to read! This is such a relevant story, especially with today’s news of hacking happening minute by minute. The characters and plot are complex in the best way possible. There are a lot of different point of views, but that’s what makes this story completely put-together. If you haven’t read his previous books, I recommend doing so because it definitely ties characters into this book, but is not necessarily required to read this one. A Highly recommended read!
