Paul Bradley Carr is the author of The Upgrade, Bringing Nothing To The Party, and Sober Is My New Drunk. His first novel, 1414º, was published in October 2021. He spent 20 years covering the dark side of Silicon Valley for publications including the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, Private Eye, PandoDaily, and Techcrunch. He was also the founder and Editor in Chief of the infamous NSFWCORP in Las Vegas. Paul was born in Dunfermline, Scotland and currently lives in San Francisco and Palm Springs, California.
“Correlation was not causation.”
Lou finds herself caught in a dangerous and quickly turning deadly game of cat and mouse when she tries to take on Silicon Valley bigwigs. But as the truth starts to emerge, the game gets hotter and hotter.
This was an interesting book. I am generally not one to read tech-heavy books, but there was a nice element of suspense to this one, and I enjoyed it.
The character development was well done, and we get to know each main character reasonably well throughout the novel. I loved that intelligent, capable, formidable females led this book. That was incredible to see.
The storyline is intense the entire time, with bursts of escalation and several twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
I enjoyed the performance of narrator Emily Lawrence. She did a phenomenal job bringing each character to life. I would listen to her narrate a novel again.
