9781456458133: Do I Recognize You?

Do I Recognize You? is the first thriller novel to focus on the use of face recognition tracking of retail shoppers. The story is set two years into the future, where face recognition and other biometrics are utilized to track public shopping habits. Lacking in ethics and devoid of moral character, computer genius Kevin White launched Recognition Sales, Inc. to supply the necessary hardware and software that instantly identifies patrons when they enter a retail store, which in turn provides the sales clerks with the detailed information they need to manipulate the customer into making purchases. What makes White's business so shady and corrupt is the fact that it is partially funded by the leader of a Mexican drug cartel. In essence, White made a deal with the devil by allowing this dangerous felon access to personal data. When the hero of the story, Zach Brian, is misidentified due to a flaw in the RSI system, the DEA believes he is wanted for drug crimes, and the cartel is convinced he is the person they have been looking for to settle a score. Worse yet, when White learns that Brian has figured out the glitch, he wants Brian silenced before he ruins the chance of the business earning millions when he takes his company public. In an attempt to escape the ruthless drug lord and the evil White, Brian goes on the run, determined to prove what he knows. A gripping and controversial thriller that involves romance, the death of a parent, and a fight to prove one's innocence, teh story also exposes aspects of technology in the retail world that many already find both invasive and disturbing. Greed is corruptive, says the author, and the desire to make money is often placed ahead of moral behavior. Who has Brian been mistaken for? Will he find out before he is captured and killed? Readers interested in love stories, science, computers, marketing, and future events will keep turning the pages, anxious to know if good will eventually overcome evil in the end. Do I Recognize You? features a compelling Foreword by face recognition expert Harry Wechsler, PhD, Professor Computer Science, George Mason University, and author of "Reliable Face Recognition Methods- System Design, Implementation and Evaluation" (Springer 2007)

From the Author:

     I hope you are both entertained and a little alarmed by Do I Recognize You?  I'm not anti-government, anti-corporations, or anti-technology, but tracking and profiling of retail shoppers raises many questions about privacy and freedom.  Add to that the "coming soon" use of face recognition technology, and the potential for error and misuse is frightening. 
     I'm already working out the framework for a sequel, so I hope you'll enjoy this first book, and stick with me for one or two more.  I'd love to hear from readers, and I'd really love to see this story hit the big screen as an action-adventure movie that sends an important message.
     Thank you all for the support I'm receiving, and let me know what you think!
Glen Goleburn
