In an era where many people's deepest interactions occur in cyberspace, personal privacy isn't difficult to penetrate.
It's easy to dismiss things like an undelivered email or an odd text message as simple technical errors, but what would happen if they weren't just innocent malfunctions?
What if there was a menacing force lurking behind every glitch, watching, altering a person's life in barely detectable ways.
New York Times bestselling author Michael Marshall explores this idea in "KILLER MOVE" (William Morrow, June 28, 351 pages).
"KILLER MOVE" paints a portrait of man - Bill Moore - with an average life spiraling out of control.
He's got a lucrative job selling condos in the Florida Keys, a successful wife, a good marriage, a beautiful house. He has a five-year plan for super-success, too, but that plan is dragging into its sixth year without paying off and so now he's starting to mix it up-just a little-to accelerate his way into the future he knows he deserves.
One morning when Bill gets to work, however, he finds a card has been left for him. No clue who it's from, or why. It's black on both sides, with just one word printed in white letters: MODIFIED.
From that moment on, Bill's life begins to change.
At first, it's just in tiny, barely noticeable ways. But as it starts to unwind totally-and one after another, people around Bill start to die-it becomes increasingly clear that someone, somewhere, has a very different plan than Bill does for Bill's future.
Utterly baffled, Bill finally begins to fight back, until he ultimately realizes . . . Once modified, there's no going back.
