Terms of Use by Scott Allen Morrison

Amazing book for the times – prescient.  And it was published in 2015!,  but … well,  it’s about how social media (think Facebook or Twitter) tricks can affect a presidential campaign.  (YES!) –

At first it seems like an odd mix of a whole lot of standard plot twists. Then the hard-hitting second half hits – the meat –  the election is “rigged” bit.

Sergio Mansour is 50 years old,  a research executive at  “Circles,”  the social media company he created.  The company itself thinks all their data (and there is a LOT of data) is completely secure and Sergio is working on what he thinks is a really fool-proof system.  But there are a couple of people who definitely know that nothing is foolproof.   Then the company’s whole system crashes – Circles is down.   There’s a confrontation.  A teeny bit later the chief security officer is found murdered and  the flash drive he had is missing.   But Sergio gets it and is then he’s  the person the really bad guys want to get.

There’s quite a lot of chasing for awhile,  but then the figuring out starts –  I honestly couldn’t see how it could end in anything other than disaster.
