The book is set in a futuristic England, where technology has advanced.  You can get a cheek swab to find your perfect mate and cars drive autonomously. In trying to protect the government’s secrets in a highly advanced technological world, the government developed a new program and recruited ordinary people with a specific skill set to guard their secrets from the hacking collective.

I am picky in what sci fi and fantasy books I read.  I need them based in a reality I can believe. This really hit the mark.  I first read Orwell’s 1984 in 1984, when everything in his book was still a prediction. And since then, I’ve lived through where technology has taken.  I will admit, I’m still slightly disappointed we didn’t arrive at robot cleaners and flying cars from the Jetsons.  And while the world created by Marrs isn’t happening, you never know if or when it could.

I recommend this if you want to escape to highly technological world filled with suspense and thrills.

I’d like to thank Berkley Books and NetGalley for the ARC.
