In the 21st century, information is king. Transformed by a revolutionary medical procedure, the country's most classified information has been taken offline and turned into genetic code implanted inside five people's heads.
Mr. Marrs, by splitting the narration between five characters, creates a string of mysteries, revelations and cliffhangers. If The Minders has a unifying theme, it’s that thinking you can rely on super-tech is dangerous. One feels sorry for the prime minister. Maybe he should have told his advisers that it was time to go back to pencil and paper.
This near-future thriller has a really wild premise... His world of tomorrow is a logical and perceptive extrapolation from today’s reality, and his characters are fully realized. The story? Well, let’s just say it’s exciting enough to keep you flipping the pages and smart enough to keep your brain fully engaged. Marrs isn’t a name-brand writer yet, but this book might just make him one.
