Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

by David Shafer
£8.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2015)

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot by David Shafer David Shafer's acclaimed Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: A brilliant, visionary and deeply human cyber-thriller.
 
Deep in the forest near Burma's border with China, a young woman sees something she wasn't supposed to see.
 
In Portland, Oregon, a troubled young man crashes his bicycle on his way to work - and then gets fired.
 
In New York, a famous self-help author goes on daytime TV - and suddenly conceives 'a book that would take him beyond talk shows'.
 
What connects these three people - though they don't know it yet - is that they have come to the attention of the Committee, a global cabal that seeks to privatize all information. And each of them will, in their different ways, come to take part in the secret resistance struggle spearheaded by a scarily clever hacktivist collective - a struggle built on radical politics, classic spycraft and eye-popping technology. Along the way, they are forced to confront their own demons, reconsider their values, and contemplate the meaning of love, family, friendship and community.
 
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is at once a page-turning thriller, a deeply absorbing psychological novel, and a visionary exploration of the possibilities and hazards of our online lives.
