Infinite Exposure

Rate this book

On the road to a bleaker future, is there still a chance to get it right? This work of fiction uses historical information and relevant news stories to draw a line from post 9/11 through the off-shoring of IT jobs and the largest terrorist strike the free world has ever known to the resulting nuclear war. By the year 2012 the U.S. will no longer be a world power. The world will have seen many countries deploy nuclear weapons. Anarchy will reign in many parts of the world and electricity will be considered a luxury nearly everywhere. That, however, is not the interesting part of the story. How we got there is a far more interesting tale indeed. Follow the story from post 9/11 to where it all went bad and see if you can find a way out, not just for yourself, but for everyone.

I am about 150 pages into this book, so I thought I would go ahead and start my review because it may end up being lengthy. Per regulations I need to inform all readers of this review that this book was given to me through the GOODREADS FIRSTREADS program.

A little background on myself and what I like to read should first be warranted.

I am a 35 year old, caucasion, married woman with three children. I live in a "rural" area- not completely mountain people but close enough for a short drive to them! I am an RN, BSN, and I also hold a Bachelor's degree in Wellness Science Management. I work in community health presently, and my husband works as an MRI technician and PACS administrator for the local hospital.

I consider myself to be intelligent enough to make my own, independent choices, and pride myself for being able to think "outside the box" when it comes to everything from historical events, to current world-view, national view with regard to our leaders, our national agencies (CDC, FDA, NHO just to name a very few) and a myriad of other important issues. (one thing I seem to have problems with are run-on sentences! Please forgive me.)

I would consider myself someone who does not share the world(?)view (national view?) of materialism, capitalism, really you could just insert _________ here. Now, that does not mean I live "off-the-grid", and it does not mean that my family and me wear clothes made out of burlap and glean fields for our food. (I try to live on a fine line concerning these things!)

That being said, this book was one that I was very interested in. On the dedication page, it reads "For all those willing to step back and see the whole board, not just listen to what the announcer says and be spellbound." That would describe my feelings to a "T." The subject matter to me was interesting, I won't go into all of that as I am sure you already have an idea what this book is about if you are reading my review.

I will say that so far this book has been very surprising- it is so in-depth! I have never read a book of fiction where I learned so much in the first 150 pages! The characters may be fictional, but the issues are most determinedly not! For those not willing to admit this, than this book is not for you.

Infinite exposure is a hard read! I am a nurse, not an IT person! Luckily, I happen to enjoy reading books that challenge me in any area, whether it is a book written in "Old English", or a book which in this case teaches me about whole other worlds outside of my own. My world consists of nursing, home, and family. This book has so far taught me about IT, about the deficiencies of some IT experts (which isn't really a reach when you think about it- every profession has them- it is just a tad unnerving that it is THIS realm of expertise and the EXTENT to which the deficiencies reach), it has also taught me about out-sourcing, about the world banking system, about methods used by Al-Queda and even all the other sources of support for them which I honestly may have missed on my own, at least for a time.

Really, there is so much more here that I need to process that I think I will read more before continuing on with my review.Again, I apologize for my run-ons, and I am going to get back to this book! More later!

Wow this book has more twists and turns than- well, I can't think of anything that has more! It is very educational for someone like me with a background other business. Not only educational, but eye-opening!

I really kind of equate this book with "Pulp Fiction," and that may sound strange, but only because it has all of these single strands that come together to make a huge story! I love anything that starts out in one place and ends up totally somewhere else. This book started out with several different scenarios/plot-lines/characters- and they are now coming together in a very tangible (?) way...more later!!!

I am close to being done and I have to say- I was getting just a little bit disinterested and then POW!!! It all starts to happen! And it is amazing!

I was very surprised at the ending. This was an interesting book. It is NOT for someone who wants a quick, easy read. If you like challenging books that make you think, this book is for you. Oh, and SCARY how this really could happen!

Roland Hughes in his new book, "Infinite Exposure" published by Logikal Solutions takes us on a wild ride through Corporate America, global banking, Government manipulation and terrorism.

Suppose you took the headlines that blare at us from the newspaper and news magazine pages put them all together in one neat stack and then figured out how all these items of interest related to one another? If you could do that then you would have your version of "Infinite Exposure" By Roland Hughes.

Get ready for a nail-biting, page-turning thriller. Corporate America in a cost-cutting measure is sending IT jobs overseas to Call Centers. These Call Centers are out of the jurisdiction of the U.S. Government so therefore none of these employees can be checked. Now suppose terrorists infiltrated the Call Centers with their own people and now had access to sensitive information of these corporations which include financial data and much more? Now suppose that once they got their hands on this information they would be able to siphon off huge amounts of money which they could use to build nuclear weapons to threaten major governments? Mr. Hughes tells us "Infinite Exposure" is a work of fiction but just suppose it is not?

Roland Hughes knows how to craft suspense. Mr. Hughes has given us a story that forces us to pause and think about our future. He makes us think about what we are doing now to ourselves and to our economy all in the name of greed and ease. These actions just may have dire consequences for our country and the world. "Infinite Exposure" is great fun to read.

Infinite Exposure by Roland Hughes is an action-packed, captivating story that shares the lives and perspectives of intelligence officials, Al-Qaeda members, bank employees, and others that are all connected through the terrorism, identity theft, interrogation, conspiracy, and financial issues that occur in the world.

Infinite Exposure begins with an interrogation of a Muslim, Nedim, who is believed to be an Al-Qaeda member. The author shows the brutal intensity that goes on in an intelligence interrogation, which occurs to thousands of possible members over the course of the story. Nedim’s forced confession and cooperation allows the intelligence agency to gain knowledge about other Al-Qaeda members and their goals in India, which will end up affecting other countries as well.

Infinite Exposure also explores conspiracies in the financial sector, such as money laundering, greed, and suspicious trading and investing, and what people will do just to get to the top of a company, as well as what can happen when they do so.

There are relationships in the book, such as friends, family, coworkers, and lovers. However, many of the relationships are “twisted,” as is to be expected with a conspiracy novel. It is interesting to see how the characters interact and deal with the situations they face.

Infinite Exposure would appeal to those interested in world history, politics, and news, and those who enjoy action, adventure, and conspiracy novels that are believable, realistic, and hardcore. I recommend this book to those who are interested in going on the ride of their lives!

I received this book for free from goodreads.com.

Infinite Exposure was a page turner. I stayed up way to late because I couldn't put it down. Even though I knew it was getting later and later, I kept wanting to see what would happen next.

The book is scary. Not monster scary or blood and guts type of scary; Its the kind of scary where you can see something really bad happening and not being able to do anything in the world to stop it. The scenario of terrorist infiltrating and consequently hurting us through our off-shore data processing centers seems all to plausabile to me. I am actually scared that the wrong peole might read this book and get ideas.

All that being said, there are some things that are pretty unplausable in the story. The idea that you could put huge amounts of organs and blood for money on the black market and no one noticing or investigating just doesn't seem like a plausable idea. The fact that someone would build such an elaborate and secure facility to do so also doesn't seem plausable. THe cost and risks would not outway the financial gains. That part of the story actually got alittle bothersome and I started skipping through it.

My biggest dislike of the books came from the fact that the author does not use "QUOTATION MARKS". I'm not sure there is one in the entire book. It was very distracting. It is a good thing that the overall story is good otherwise this one issue alone would have had me put down the book.

Nedim was a good Muslim but he wasn’t a terrorist. At least, that’s what he told himself. It had all started so innocently. He needed a computer to do his schoolwork. A friendly cleric wanted to help. The only thing he asked in return was that Nedim send a few emails for him, a couple of vacation shots, an embedded message here and there. What could be the harm in that?

The next thing Nedim knows he’s being questioned by an anti-terrorist unit. The men asking the questions are playing for keeps. When they ask for Nedim’s help in locating terrorist nodules, it’s obvious that he has no other choice.

Infinite Exposure gives a balanced behind the scenes look at terrorism and the war on terror. Not all terrorists are religion fanatics looking to die for their cause. By the same token, often anti-terror measures aren’t all that civilized. The average person has no idea of what’s really going on or how far-reaching the implications.

Who are you really talking to every time you call a 1-800 number? Who is it that has access to all of your information?

Infinite Exposure by Rolald Hughes is a book that goes into detail about the problems that could arise from the US using so many off shore companies and call centers to save money. It doesn't take much for someone to get hired on as a call center representative anywhere in the world, much less another country, so who really knows where all of your private information is ending up. I love how this book explores how terrorist groups can use these off shore companies to gain info and plot new terrorist attacks that we could be completely unaware of. This was a great read and I definitely think our national security team should be reading this! Not only was it very insightful but it also told a story and kept me interested the whole way through.

I won the book through the goodread first read.
It was captivating reading, that keep me wanting to find out what will happen next, in the same time make me think how many possibilities for the simple things to become so wrong, to be used and taking advantage off by people with idea to create a chaos.
The book is fast past read , sometime hard to follow all the fact, but keep me on edge with the events and actions.
Not an easy, relaxing read.
The book feel so real and thus make it so intense because of the facts used in writing this book. The off shore labor that become so popular, the multimedia access, the possibilities of easy access anyone privet information, all make this book good read

Infinite Exposure - Guest Review by Matthew Morrison

Roland Hughes creates an intriguing jambalaya with his latest offering: Infinite Exposure. He mixes the raw carnage of high finance and international banking with a murky broth of covert "ops." Spicing the mixture cleverly with the bitterness of a neo-Nazi plan to eradicate al-Qaeda Cyber terrorists. Served on a chilled plate of good old American corporate greed. This book will wake you up to the possibilities what this world may be coming to.

"Infinite Exposure" is a self-published novel about what could happen in this world where we fight terrorism, offshore IT functions, and undertake massive corporate manuveurings. Some of the dialog and internal thoughts (particularly of the female characters) felt a bit awkward, contrived, forced, and not a realistic way that women would behave. I'm lookng at you, girl-on-girl "flirtation" scene between two bank employees.

The plotline of the book was overall interesting but I feel like the book could be better with some editing to remove unneeded bits and perhaps shorten the book by 50-100 pages.

"Infinite Exposure" was a great read and did an excellent job describing what can potentially happen in our world. With outsourcing and globalization the potential for catastrophe is high. Although this book is considered "fiction", I could see this playing out in the real world.

Some of the technical parts of the book were a bit hard to understand, but when I get past them it was a very engaging read. All of the stories came perfectly together and at the end you had to say "WOW".

I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

I honestly couldn't finish this book. I tried. It was long and just over my head honestly. I couldn't get into the book or understand half of it. I donated the book though so it can find a good home. :)

Won a copy through Goodreads' First Reads program.

Thought provoking, but kind of hard to follow. It jumped around a bit, but was pretty fast paced.
