Veronica Sloan has another implant - part of the Optical Evidence Programme, meaning that she will be able to read visual evidence stored in implants in others. One of the people with this implant has been found murdered at the ruins of the White House. The assumption is that the killing had to be terrorist related. Security staff resent Veronica's presence and who had security clearance to pick off one woman involved in Optical project?
The Orwellian world created in the aftermath of the destruction of the White House builds on RFID technology used to identify animals and expensive retail products today. Because the book is set in the mid-2020s much is recognisable. I found the killing described very unpleasantly. We - through Veronica - are later forced to relive the victim's last moments. This does make the point that technology or not, people still have to do the unpleasant tasks. Looking through the dead woman's vision includes voyeurism. Veronica has co-workers who are supportive but she is not close to either of them, and she is not particularly feminine, which makes it harder to relate to her.
Those who really enjoy a gory thriller will like this better than I did.
