Publisher's Summary

Though her specialty is foreign cyberterrorism, CIA agent Kera Mersal finds herself plunged into a bizarre domestic case. Singers, writers, and artists are disappearing, leaving no trace in a world where everyone leaves a digital footprint. Posing as a journalist, Kera attempts to track the artists' last-known movements.
On a hunt that takes her from the underground art scene to a rogue domestic spying program, Kera finds her investigation on a deadly collision course with ONE Corp., the world's largest multimedia conglomerate. As she's drawn deeper into the investigation, she discovers that an enigmatic young ad exec, a wealthy playboy, and a mysterious website may connect the missing artists and ONE's growing power. And with each discovery comes confirmation of a terrifying truth - no one's secrets are safe.
A smartly suspenseful and timely thriller, End of Secrets dives into the depths of our culture’s two most relentless obsessions: entertainment and profit.

A bit slow

Being a a tech person I had higher hopes for this story, took me a long time to get involved in it; I finally realized it was partly due to the narrator who had little enthusiasm for the character she was portraying.

This would have been Astonishing in 2007.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Felt like a made for TV movie. Felt rushed, esp. near the conclusion. For anyone who has NO clue about Government wire-tapping, 24/7 video surveillance or that everything in the "Cloud" emails, data stored, transactions online and offline accessed, nearly all computer traffic data will identify you (even anonymously) has little or no expectation of privacy. This will be eye-opening to them. But in the years since Snowden, Wikileaks, and fictionalized programs like "Person of Interest" readers in my opinion will need a lot more to be surprised. Even without the technology & privacy consideration--the story could have used some additional development.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I read the book but had to stop the narrator 1/2 way through. Their voice and style was more distracting than usual. Most narrators whether you like them or prefer a specific person, you get into the groove and focus on the story. Not so much here.


Was End of Secrets worth the listening time?

Not the listening time. The book itself for newbies, yes.
