LS Hawker is a familiar name to me, so I was happy to grab End of the Road and check it out. Conspiracy and cyber terrorism, how can I pass it up?
Something is very wrong in Miranda Kansas, where Jade and a group of cyber nerds are hard at work creating a computer program, a form of artificial intelligence that Jade began to help her sister, who has autism.
The main characters are a group of computer geniuses who were chosen because of their computer skills and their ability to think outside the box.
It’s easy for me to know there is danger on the horizon, it’s just figuring out who are the bad guys that is the difficult part.
End of the Road is a realistic novel that lends credence to the attacks on our country today. How safe are we? Will Artificial Intelligence ever be a reality? Could you trust it to do what you wanted it to do, or would it choose it’s own course? Just think of the drones being used today and the TV show, Person of Interest.
I love what if scenarios…what if I was in Jade’s shoes? Could I make the tough choices?
“…in every utopia ever devised, only the “right” people would have power.”
I love conspiracies and End of the Road raises more questions than it answers.
There were some places where things didn’t work for me, and I never felt an overwhelming sense of danger, but all in all I would recommend End of the Road by L S Hawker.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of End of The Road by L S Hawker.
