The Minders – John Marrs

5* from me…

The Blurb:

In the 21st century, information is king. But computers can be hacked and files can be broken into – so a unique government initiative has been born. Five ordinary people have been selected to become Minders – the latest weapon in thwarting cyberterrorism. Transformed by a revolutionary medical procedure, the country’s most classified information has been taken offline and turned into genetic code implanted inside their heads.

Together, the five know every secret – the truth behind every government lie, conspiracy theory and cover up. In return, they’re given the chance to leave their problems behind and a blank slate to start their lives anew.

But not everyone should be trusted, especially when they each have secrets of their own they’ll do anything to protect…

My review:

WOW yet again John Marrs writes an excellent drama…I am not usually a fan of stories set in the future or of books with more than a few characters so I put off reading this book for a while… but as it was written by John Marrs I just had to read it as everything he has written so far has been given a 5* from me! I was not disappointed…

Despite my concerns John Marrs makes the many characters easy to follow using reminders of who they are at the start of their chapters very cleverly without rehashing old ground. I love the way he writes and can always follow the plot despite not always understanding the futuristic technological references! I’m so impressed by how he put this together with such detail for all of the characters. I also loved the refences to The One and The Passengers which are both excellent books.

The story had me gripped and not wanting to put it down. I would certainly recommend this and all of his other books.
