Teaser Tuesday #2 ~ 17/09/2013 ~ Too Much Information by David Haskell



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

 Grab your current read • Open to a random page  • Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


Here is my teaser for today:


Too Much Information by David 

Page 14

"Waiting to meet with the Chief Operations Officer, Joseph Manning sat in the outer office and tried to look casual. His repeated leg crossings and necktie adjustments, however, betrayed his true feelings. A hardware specialist just a few years into his tenure, he was accustomed to high profile encounters."



Synopsis:
In an era of terrorism and pandemics, with constant threats from differing but equally destructive sources, Thermo-Magnetic Imaging machines represent a seemingly perfect solution. But as privacy and health concerns grow ever more complex, this cutting edge technology delivers more than anyone had bargained for. While the forces behind the scenes fight to conceal their true agenda, the public struggles to cope with a new paradigm so invasive their innermost secrets are laid bare under its powerful lens.
Rob Folsom is a civil liberties activist, a staunch defender of privacy rights. Rosa Perez, a government agent specializing in surveillance, seems an unlikely candidate for him to represent. As Rob is pulled into her world, a world of high-tech spying, corporate intrigue, and black ops government agencies, he becomes caught in a perilous game of cat and mouse. As the target of interest switches from client to advocate, Rob has to find a way to stop them before they sabotage everything he has worked for...


Hope you enjoyed today's Teaser. What are you currently reading? 

Leave a teaser in the comment :)

    1. I know :) Sometimes a good mystery and thriller is worth it :) I just finished Letters From a Murderer and loved it! Not my normal paranormal romance read but a captivating adventure! I'll be posting a review next week :)

    "He started towards the direction Denise has gone - which was out the front door, not up the stairs to the room with the springy mattress-when Ian's voice chased after him."

    "She hoped Spade thought she was just going for an Academy Award with her response to his kiss on her forehead. "

  7. I like the idea of taking something real (thermo-magnetic imaging) and turning it into something sinister. Also, so clever of the author to use the double meaning of TMI for the title - too much information and thermo-magnetic imaging. This sounds like a book I'd enjoy.
    My Teaser is from SMOKE, WINGS & STONE.
