    First half good..second half..meh

    Great idea. Very timely with all the AI that is increasingly a part of our daily lives. Unfortunately the action and tension of the first half of this novel fell flat in the second half.

    Buckle up!

    This was really good! I have never read anything by John Marrs before picking up this book but I thought it sounded good so I decided to take a chance. I loved the idea behind the story and was pretty excited to start reading. I found this book to be really exciting and I loved the fact that it was able to keep me guessing. I definitely found this one to be quite an enjoyable page-turner. This story is set a few years in the future where driverless cars are not only the norm but they will soon be the only cars allowed on the road. These cars are reported to be safer and have cut down on traffic and travel times. It seems perfect. Too perfect. Of course, these cars are also reported to be completely secure and safe from hackers. That is until they are hacked. Eight different people find themselves locked in their cars unable to control them. They are told that they will die in a couple of hours. Their plight is broadcast around the world through social media and news stations. At the same time, a group that is tasked with looking into accidents involving these cars are together and thrust in the spotlight as they are forced to make impossible decisions. Each of the eight passengers had their own story. We didn't always get all of the pieces to tell their complete story right away and I really liked how I never knew who should be trusted and what was real. The characters were quite varied and they all had very interesting stories. I will say that I didn't really feel any kind of connection to any of the characters. I felt like the book only focused on each character for a very short time and it was somewhat difficult to really feel too much for any of them. This story was really exciting with a whole lot of surprises. Often, I would think that I had something figured out only to learn a few pages later that I was wrong. I love a book that can keep me guessing and this one certainly was able to do that. I liked that the book was fast-paced and the short chapters really seemed to help keep things moving. I would recommend this book to others. I think that thriller fans that appreciate unexpected twists and turns will enjoy this one. I would not hesitate to read more of John Marrs work! I received a review copy of this book from Berkley Publishing Group.
