The History Book this week becomes Security Breach, re-named and re-packaged to take account of the rapidly-changing real-life events. My kick-ass heroine — as one reviewer described Kat Polinski — finds herself hunting her sister’s killers in Britain — about the most spied-on society in the world.
The news just in the past few days shows how closer we have become are to Kat’s world — with things going on that I would hardkly dared have put in when I was writing the book a couple of years back.
1) Councils used spying laws against 10,000 different municipal infringements such as littering.
2) Huge television screens are being put up all over London to the Olympics, but will become permanent fixtures.
3) British MPs publish a report that energy firms are conspiring to raise prices.
Let me know what you think and have a great, entertaining read.
