Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you. That’s the premise of this techno-thriller, which imagines a corporate cabal — think Google — that is spying on customers and is poised to ”sneak tyranny into our lives through convenience.” Leila, a Dagny Taggart-like character who can’t fight the nefarious conspiracy herself, meets two unlikely heroes who join her resistance movement. You get the impression that Shafer loved everything about Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged except its politics; the author relies too much on giant data-dumps of plot detail that should be parceled out more elegantly, and by page 422, the story is only getting started.
