About the Book:
In this electrifying near-future thriller, five strangers guard government secrets, but only four can be trusted...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 cyberterrorism. 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.

My Review:
I am not a big Science-Fiction fan but if John Marrs writes it I am definitely willing to give it a go. What he is able to come up with just blows my mind and this was such an engrossing story that kept my interest throughout. I mean right from the blurb... "five strangers guard government secrets, but only four can be trusted." What could possibly go wrong? I love how he incorporated the plot of two of his other books into this one. But by no means do you need to read them first, this is one hundred percent a stand alone novel.

If you want a book that will blow your mind, this is the one for you. Electric, entertaining, intellectually boggling, and heartfelt. This is a Science-Fiction tale with personal trauma at the core...But more than that, it is a wild ride that will make your mouth fall open with each turning of the page. WTF did I just read will be an understatement, and if you think the story can't get any worse, keep reading...your mind will be totally blown.  This was a great read. It makes you question the road not taken and how our choices define who we are. I can’t wait to read more by this fabulous author as John Marrs is a  Technothriller master.

Thank you NetGalley, John Marrs and Berkley Publishing Group for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
