This action filled book will definitely get your heart to pumping. It is a fictional account of events that could be taken fro today's events. Our main character, Jake Conley, prevents a mass shooting in a theater, very much what happened in reality about a year ago. As you turn the pages, you will discover politics, greed, paranoia, corruption and so much more. You are definitely hooked after the first few pages. As Jake is recruited into a company called DSCC, privately owned and uses the best technology and the government agencies to reach ahead of surveillance to the point of taking over the privacy of individuals.You find yourself right along with him. I started wondering and realizing how many of these events have and could happen. My heart started beating fast as I realized this book has so much reality i n it. These things have happened, are happening and could happen. That's scary. In today's society you never know what will happen next. It could come to your front door. The author gives us a mix of truth and fiction. I started thinking about the powerful people and how they sometimes can do what they want and when they want. Power can be powerful. The power can be put to work in a good way or used in a corrupted way. I would suggest this book to anyone who likes a good book that makes you think and reflect. There's lots of action in this book, never a dull moment to bore the reader. The events in this book are a mix of reality and fiction. The reader should stop and think, this has happened, is happening and could happen. That's a lot to think about, but necessary.
I was given a complimentary copy of DEADLY PROVOCATION from the author, T.F. Coleman and OutSkirtsPress for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.
Much in the same way George Orwell did with the book 1984, Mr. Coleman does a great job of mixing real and fictional account to get the reader to think about the consequences of a society where those with power are allowed to run rampant. In Deadly Provocation these questions arise from a privately held company DSCC that use the latest technology and pull with government agencies to go beyond the limits of surveillance to the point of controlling the action of individuals. The biggest of these questions is one that is currently being debated on the use of drones.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone that enjoy a good thought provoking read that has plenty of action.
The company (DSCC) uses a vast data collection and mining resource where they look for potential mass shooters based on certain characteristics defined in their mining software. Michaels immediately offers Jake a high paying job with DSCC and Jake goes to work looking over various individuals identified by DSCC.
At a DSCC party Jake meets Medalia, a Venezulen woman who is instantly attracted to Jake. Medalia tells Jake that her mother disappeared in Venezuela and her father works with DSCC hoping to find out information about her. The longer jake works at DSCC he finds that there may be forces there abusing their power to get what they want.
The book makes a point of the dangers of collecting too much information because there are always those who will use it. I would have rated it higher but I felt the author needs a little more "polish" in his writing style.
