Average thriller with obvious plot

Good attempt by Scarrow to write something departed from the excellent Macro and Cato series. However while the concepts in this not-too-distant cyber thriller are interesting, the execution isn't great. There are some glaringly obvious plot 'twists' - 'Skin' being advertised in media, but none of the FBI guess that the victim is wearing one... As well as a few gaping holes in the story - Where did the fire that killed the first victim come from?

I don't read many crime thrillers, preferring historical fiction, but I was able to guess the majority of the story from fairly early on. Diva is an interesting 'character' though if Scarrow is planning to continue this into a series of books 'she' has far too much power. One phone call from Rose and pretty much any bad guy can be located...

In summary it was an interesting listen, but I won't rush to listen again. Back to Macro and Cato!
