The Blurb:

In this riveting technothriller, investigative blogger Matt Tremain is covering devastating riots in Toronto when he learns of a plot to rid the city of “undesirables.” The operation is called CleanSweep, and appears to be led by billionaire Charles Claussen, who want to sweep Toronto clean of all street people and any citizens who don’t match his restrictive screening matrix.
Matt questions whether he has the courage, skill or influence to take on Claussen, but the murder of one of his sources convinces the blogger to put his life on the line. He gambles on the loyalty of a Toronto police detective and a local TV reporter for help. If his trust is misplaced, Matt will become yet another victim of CleanSweep, and the truth will be buried with him forever.

My Review:

By now, you will know that I am a big fan of conspiracy, crypto-crime thriller-y type books and this fits the bill perfectly!
I am a firm believer that we are all being watched 24/7 and I am OK with that… for now… I think!
The story of this one drags you into it very quickly and is definitely not a book that you have to force yourself to remember to read!  One thing I particularly enjoyed was that the author doesn’t dumb down the subject matter – he tells it like it is and that does mean the occasional trip to Google to work out what it is – but I don’t mind that in the slightest!
The characters are well written and easily likeable, in particular the protagonist, Matt who I had a real soft spot for and he certainly kept me on tenterhooks throughout the story.  Knowing who can be trusted and is working with you is, as almost always in these kind of books, important and there are some surprises during the story.
I loved it – read it quickly and can’t wait for the second book which I happen to have and will review very shortly too!
