Description

The government is spying on everyone. But who is spying on the government?

A ruthless online activist group called Kittehsaurus Rox has hacked into top-secret Cabinet information and gone public with it, creating widespread panic and embarrassing a government that will stop at nothing to hunt down 'KSR'.

Journalist and cyber-expert Kat Sharpe is chosen by KSR to break news of their operations, and overnight she becomes the media sensation she has always longed to be. But as she gets closer to KSR and its circle of supporters, she can't shake the feeling that something doesn't add up.

Cybersecurity company Veldtech Industries is in line to make a fortune out of the carnage created by the hackers. But they have their own desperate secrets to protect - from the government and from each other.

Surveillance is a thrilling, timely novel about the price we pay for our 'security' and the lengths companies - and governments - will go to hide the truth.

Review quote

A fat, fast, often funny cyber-thriller... The novel brilliantly depicts the way truth can be subverted by public opinion. * Adelaide Advertiser * A racy, classy yarn. Bernard Keane's eye for detail is mesmerising. His subject is certainly timely, his insights instructive. But above all this is an entertaining page-turner. -- Paul Bongiorno, political journalist Keane's knowledge of the online frontier and its implications for democracy can't be faulted. * The Saturday Age *
