The villain is a descendant , a multi-billionaire, a Nazi descendant with a superiority complex and far right sympathies, has whole governments in his pocket and on board with his Cleansweep Operation. All they need is to create the right environment for it to be seen as the only course of action and to be implemented in Toronto, Canada and then, once the success has been seen my other rulers. implemented worldwide. But just what is Cleansweep? It's a good thing to combat terrorism and such, right? Wrong! What Matt uncovers is a conspiracy the likes of which makes the Nazi Regime and its machinations and subsequent ethnic cleansing and near genocide, look like child's play!
Reading this was hard. It sent chills up and down my spine because it some would have their way, Cleansweep could very well be a reality. all couched in the guise of 'security'. The author does a good job with characterisation and a fairly good job with pacing, though at times the dialogue was stilted and the story lagged at times. The plot is well-thought out, thought-provoking and intriguing and I think it demonstrates a need for governments to temper their need for security with respecting the rights of citizens to freedom in the process.
I enjoyed reading it and found it hard to set aside but wished the ending was different. It did leave room for a sequel so if ever that happens, I'll definitely be wanting to read it. This is a must read for lovers of conspiracy theories and suspense/thrillers.
Matt finds himself hunted by a very powerful group, who has more than disturbing plans for the future of the country. Through an encounter with a man named Tanner, Matt discovers the real intentions behind a new movement named CleanSweep, which has taken a strong hold in the government and life. After unveiling the conspiracy in his blog, Matt, along with several other people, find themselves running for their lives while trying to reveal the group's true goals.
The opening scenes pack tension pure and demand attention. Although the reader knows little about Matt during these pages, the situation he finds himself in is so grabbing that it's hard not to get caught up in his tale. But this isn't only a story about Matt. As the plot unfolds, a small group of people stand next to him and are ready to stand at his side.
The author is a talented writer and knows how to thread an intriguing plot together, insuring the background information as well as scenes sit perfectly as a puzzle. The tale is well thought out and the messages behind it clear.
Many moments of high tension sprinkle the pages as the reader follows Matt as he tries to remain out of Claussen's clutches while attempting to find a way to expose the evil group for what it really is. While these moments are simply a joy to read, there are more dry moments in between, where information comes across thick and heavy. The logic behind the master villain's plans is delivered in clear text, keeping things from getting confusing but also losing a little in the way of tension and pacing. Flashbacks are used in the story which allow the layers of intrigue to come to light at just the right time, but unfortunately, there's never any notation to let the reader know that a scene is indeed a flashback. This causes quite a bit of confusion at times.
The characters are easy to love or hate. Matt and those at his side are simple to root for as they find themselves in one dangerous situation after the next, and yet, still try to expose Claussen and his plans. Claussen radiates all that is terrible and unjust. All of these characters, however, lack a little on depth.
All in all, this is an interesting read with tension and intriguing layers. Especially toward the end a few surprises await and invite to dive into the next book.
I received a complimentary copy and found the mystery intriguing and thrilling enough to want to leave my honest thoughts.
The novel had an interesting premise but, not necessarily a new idea. I thought it was an enjoyable read about how technology can be used for both good and evil. I found the novel to be relevant in today's political atmosphere. However, I thought the story fell flat, especially, since there was no indicating of time being changed along with one-dimensional characters. The novel had the backbone of something great but, sadly, it didn't deliver for me.
