John Twelve Hawks
John Twelve Hawks is a pseudonym. Of who, no one knows. This is the first book in trilogy of high tech thrillers with touch of science fiction. Good enough to hold my attention, but now good enough to get me to read the other books in the series.
This book is rooted in a sort of anti-man, off the grid political mindset that I am deeply opposed to. I think the whole “off the grid” movement is escapist at best and silly hippies at worst. I also don’t give a lot of credence to vast corporate conspiracies. However, that doesn’t mean they can’t be distracting to read about.
All in all, an ok book, but probably not worth your time.
*I also doubt very much the whole back story of the author (that he lives “off the grid” and only communicates with his agent via a satellite phone) but that doesn’t detract from his ability to write a page turner and this book’s ability to keep me reading.
