Présentation de l'éditeur

Terrorism and pandemics — the two deadliest threats facing the modern travelling public. Thermo-Magnetic Imaging is touted as the definitive solution.

Attorney Rob Folsom is a champion of civil liberties. When he agrees to represent security agent Rosa Perez, he's dragged into her world of high-tech spies, black-ops, and political intrigue. Surveillance giant SecureSystems Inc. will do anything to keep her quiet, having already launched the opening salvo by unfairly terminating her employment. Rob must do everything in his power to vindicate his client.

SecureSystems and their political cronies insist TMI is perfectly safe, dismissing the possibility that such cutting edge technology could prove harmful. Powerful forces align, unexpected allies emerge, and the ultimate, frightening agenda is revealed. Rob fights back in a desperate effort to expose the truth, while citizens around the world recoil under the glare of TMI's invasive lens.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Welcome to my author page!
I'm David Haskell and I've just debuted my first novel, Too Much Information (or else I've written a bunch of novels, and just haven't updated this page in a while lol).
I live near Tokyo, Japan with my wife and our nine year old daughter, and have been living in and around the Tokyo area for the past twelve years. Prior to that I spent some time traveling back and forth to Japan drumming at Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea on trashcans and other assorted ridiculous instrumentation, as well as similar gigs at DisneyWorld and Universal Studios Orlando.
I was born and raised in the Boston area, with brief residencies in California and Florida. Although I spend most of my time in Japan these days, my family and I love returning to New England as often as we can.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my page, hope you enjoy Too Much Information!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 too much information indeed 23 janvier 2014
Par Tolya
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The idea of the story was really interesting and attractive...The idea deals with an up-to-date subject: the massive use of new technologies to watch without him/her knowing the public, maybe with good intentions but where personal freedom risks to be damaged.
However too many cardboard-like characters rendered the story upside down and very difficult to read. The plot was therefore considerably weakened. Ending leaves the reader confused. Nothing to catch in this book

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Please, David Haskell, edit the book meticulously and publish a new version. 14 octobre 2013

Here's the major problem with this book: it appears that someone has attempted a cut-down or rewrite and left traces of the old version behind. Another, more serious issue in a narrative sense, is the weakness of the through line, making any form of suspense ineffective. The book should be a contemporary thriller, but I find, in its present form, nothing to make me turn the page. In fact, on many occasions I was turning back to try to figure out who the (endless parade of) characters were meant to be, which side of the conflict they represented and why we were supposed to care about them. The hero is flat, his cohorts have little going on either and what should have been a great opportunity for a story revolving around the extension of Big Brother in today's world, has been missed. There are many spelling, grammatical mistakes and typos and it appears to have been rushed into publication to match current events rather than being a carefully constructed and suspenseful story. It has earned its two stars only for its cover and the fact that, for the most part, the formatting has worked well (a challenge with Kindle). Another version needs to have a lot more going on, could be shorter, needs the characters to be fully rounded and sympathetic in some way so that we are rooting for them and caring about the outcome. As well, the author needs to examine the 'voices' with which his characters speak. In this version, they all sound alike, no matter what their background. My disclaimer here is that I did download the book for free (which, by no means devalues the book - I read it with as much care as any other). But it is my policy to review all freebies (again, with care and also with disinterest and fairness) so that at least, the author can take some steps to ameliorate his story-telling. (Note; 'disinterest' does not mean I was not interested, a linguistic problem in this book!)

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Realistic Cat and Mouse Game - Highly recommend 17 novembre 2013
Par Addison Kline - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I was immediately intrigued by the premise of Too Much Information by David Haskell. We live in a world where our ever move can be tracked, time-stamped and chronicled. It is for this reason that I found Haskell's novel to be so intriguing. The themes in this novel really hit home for me. It is no longer sci-fi to think that "Big brother is watching." The story is relevant, well-written, and thrilling to say the least. If you love a great thriller set in a realistic (almost too realistic) setting with a devious cat and mouse game, then Too Much Information is for you! 4/5 stars. Great job David!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Frighteningly realistic! 6 octobre 2013
Par Wondermom Wannabe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This thought-provoking techno thriller will have you second-guessing how much control we have given up in exchange for a feeling of security. Too Much Information explores the next step in TSA screening in a frighteningly realistic extrapolation based on current trends. The realistic characters (each burdened with their own flaws) help make the story more believable, and perhaps, foreseeable. Despite its title, the book gives you only small bits of information at a time so you will find yourself unable to put the book down in your effort to root out the truth.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Too Much Information 4 mars 2014
Par BigAl - Publié sur Amazon.com

The concept of this near future technothriller is a good one. With recent revelations about the actions of the NSA, if you can picture the technology depicted as being on the near horizon (not that big a stretch), it is both timely and credible. The potential for a good story is here.

However, the story as delivered fell short of that potential. The reasons are three-fold. First, is the technical, with more polish needed to shake out the numerous typos and grammar errors.

The second area are issues of writing craft, with multiple instances of head hopping, a tendency to tell something that should have been shown, and a character or the narrator magically knowing something that they couldn’t.

The final area of concern were things happening that made no sense. Some were minor. For example when the protagonist saw a squirrel hop from a tree branch as his car was crashing into the tree. Another was a sequence where a couple of the characters had to attend a meeting, sneak into another part of a building (which involves bypassing a security measure to get there), break into a computer, locate and download some files from that computer, and get out of the building, all in thirty minutes. I’m not sure which was less believable, that the characters thought they could do this or that they managed to do it without getting caught.

Others were major, at least to me. For example during a court case a judge allowed the protagonist, Rob, to call a “rebuttal witness” in the middle of the other side putting on their case. Anyone who has watched more than one or two fictional court cases in a movie or on a TV show would be left scratching their head, wondering when the rules changed.

**Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not the Right Read for Me 6 octobre 2013
Par Life as Leels - Publié sur Amazon.com

Based on the description I "glanced" over when I signed up to review this book, I thought it was something that would be right up my alley.

It sounded mysterious, dramatic, suspenseful.

Unfortunately, I found myself really struggling with this book.

I felt that it jumped around too much and I had a difficult time following the who's, the what's, and the where's.

In the book's defense, I struggled with reading comprehension so I'm not saying the book was bad at all. The jumping around from people to people just created too much confusion for me to keep straight and follow along.

The book sounds like it is a great read, but unfortunately, after trying for more than a week and not being able to get further than a quarter of the way through the book, I gave up.

If you can follow along, it sounds like it is exactly as I thought - mysterious, dramatic and suspenseful.
