I was excited to read this book, Too Much Information since it is one of my favorite genres.  I really enjoyed the way the author blended some of the elements of present day technology with a dystopian future.  I really knew I was going to like it from the first few pages which is my usual m.o. The author just has to get me into it right away and David Haskell did it. 

A little about the book:   

It is one of those high tech thriller books which has always been a favorite of mine. I love digging deep into the freaky worlds of others.  I enjoyed how it really wrapped all the high tech aspects of our life into it seamlessly.  There is a lot in the book that mimics some of the reality we are wrestling with right now between our government, our security and technology.  What can people do?  What can they see?  How much can they really access and is it a good thing or can it just go too far sometimes?  Security goes waaaayyy too far in Too Much Information and it is scary and exciting to read this novel.  It is hard to put down once you read those first few pages….you will see.
The book had excellent development of the different characters, even ones that appeared so briefly but were key to the novel.  I just got a real sense of each one of the characters quickly and that helped me to get hooked into the story.
A little more about the book from the author: 

In an era of terrorism and pandemics, with constant threats from differing but equally destructive sources, Thermo-Magnetic Imaging machines represent a seemingly perfect solution. But as privacy and health concerns grow ever more complex, this cutting edge technology delivers more than anyone had bargained for. While the forces behind the scenes fight to conceal their true agenda, the public struggles to cope with a new paradigm so invasive their innermost secrets are laid bare under its powerful lens.

Rob Folsom is a civil liberties activist, a staunch defender of privacy rights. Rosa Perez, a government agent specializing in surveillance, seems an unlikely candidate for him to represent. As Rob is pulled into her world, a world of high-tech spying, corporate intrigue, and black ops government agencies, he becomes caught in a perilous game of cat and mouse. As the target of interest switches from client to advocate, Rob has to find a way to stop them before they sabotage everything he has worked for...
