Black List - Brad Thor

I view this as Thor's vision of "1984", and he portrays a fairly realistic and frightening account of the Orwell classic. Scot Harvath and the group he is a part of are set up as potential terrorists by the government to get them out of the way so that certain groups can basically cause havoc by shutting down the American electronic and computer infrastructure (think internet). The novel basically describes Harvath's attempt to avoid capture while clearing his and his group's name, all in the backdrop of being literally under constant surveillance of the government and other rogue groups. My understanding is that a lot of this "watching" is currently going on as described in the book. Not a fun thought....
