It’s 2030. A world of driverless electric cars, touchless screens and social media that knows what you want before you do.
When jaded journalist Curtis Soren meets the new powerful boss of the government’s mysterious Ministry for Society, he uncovers a top-secret organisation that puts him and his colleagues in danger – and threatens the privacy and freedom of every citizen.
In a struggle with his own haunted past and a present he doesn’t understand, Soren is forced to take on Portico, the biggest social media organisation of all.
It becomes a desperate battle to expose the truth in an online world of fake news, censorship and social users addicted to their screens.
Lose yourself in this thrilling page turner which will challenge how you think about the future, and what you might need to sacrifice to get there.
A word from the Gideon Burrows, award winning author: “Portico was prompted by a single short news story on the radio, which left me seething. It was about social media companies and their influence upon governments, but also on every individual. The most terrifying thing was that every time I invented a new social tool or twist in my story, it actually happened a few weeks later. It made the book scary to write and I hope thrilling to read.”
