Missed you all last week – but for good reason – we were at Disney World!!
Now back to the real world – trying to get ready for Thanksgiving, LM’s birthday, Christmas, then LL’s birthday all in the next 6 weeks!! But reading keeps me sane (as one of the blogs I follow calls themselves) – so ofcourse I am reading through it all! I’m 2 reviews behind, but just started a new 2 nights ago.
End of Secrets by Ryan Quinn. My November Kindle First pick. (click on book or see below for description)
” He told us that in the future, perhaps the near future, power in the world would lie with those who could amass the most information and have the ability to organize it with a few strokes of a touch screen. ‘Perfect information about the past and the present contains the very instructions to build the future.’ That’s another quote I recall. This information was out there, he said, as it had always been, It needed to be collected. When ONE accomplished that, he said, it would be the end of secrets.”

Though her specialty is foreign cyberterrorism, CIA agent Kera Mersal finds herself plunged into a bizarre domestic case. Singers, writers, and artists are disappearing, leaving no trace in a world where everyone leaves a digital footprint. Posing as a journalist, Kera attempts to track the artists’ last-known movements.
On a hunt that takes her from the underground art scene to a rogue domestic spying program, Kera finds her investigation on a deadly collision course with ONE Corp., the world’s largest multimedia conglomerate. As she’s drawn deeper into the investigation, she discovers that an enigmatic young ad exec, a wealthy playboy, and a mysterious website may connect the missing artists and ONE’s growing power. And with each discovery comes confirmation of a terrifying truth—no one’s secrets are safe.
A smartly suspenseful and timely thriller, End of Secrets dives into the depths of our culture’s two most relentless obsessions: entertainment and profit.
