The Bell Ringers – Henry Porter

This political thriller is a page-turner that revolves around issues of data mining & personal privacy.  The British government has secretly put in place a means of obtaining the most personal information of its citizens & does not hesitate to use this information to serve its own purposes.  A group of concerned individuals is ready to expose the government but their calls are monitored, their computers are hacked, they are followed by drones & watched over by CCTV cameras.  With a complicated plan in motion the group has to outwit the devious machinations of the government to prevent the scheme from escalating.  Aside from its entertainment value, this story made me think about how easily we can be manipulated by fear tactics.
