Sam Hendricks has taken the worrisome technology tale, shook it up a little, and added a hefty dose of mystery and crafted something uniquely terrifying not because of monsters or the existential threat of nuclear annihilation, but because of the extremely close proximity to our own world. A world where tech can provide a sense of security, much like a wall that keeps the bad guys out and controls the sanctity of the Reformed United States.
Hendricks has crafted a bombastic story of conspiracy and betrayal. What begins as a whiplash start doesn’t slow down until the very last page. More than just a commentary on our increasingly threatened privacy (self-imposed as it is), What They Deserve gives us a moment to contemplate how various media (social, traditional, etc.) influence how we react to news of horrific events, and how they impact our judgments.
A fantastic story that gives you just enough to leave you satisfied. Characters, plot, twists – they’re all perfectly executed by this exceptional author!
This book was really good! The characters, the premise, the outcome, all really great. It’s a fast and easy read so you can be done with it very quickly. Sam is a great writer and I can’t wait to see more from her!
